Address Books

Save money on your address book by making it last longer.  Family and friends are permanent.  Addresses and phone numbers change.  Write names in ink, and addresses and phone #'s with a pencil, so that they can be easily erased and changed.

 

Look for an address book with a spiral binding.  It may cost a little more, but will be thrift friendly over time, as the binding won't crack and the pages start to fall out.  You will also save time not having to redo your address book.

Frugal footnotes:

 

Here are some more frugal ideas for address books.

-  Use your email program to keep your address book.  Programs like Microsoft's Outlook let you enter addresses along with names and email contact information.
 
- Another option is to use a spreadsheet.  Most people have Microsoft's Works  installed on their computer.  It comes with a very simple spreadsheet.  There are help menus, and even if you've never used a spreadsheet before, you will not find it hard to learn.
 
Just be sure to back up your information, and print it out once a year.
