You know you're a planner geek or an office supply junkie when you've done most of the 24 things you can do with an index card.


been there, done that, got the leftovers to prove it. :)


Only 24 ?

"I think the surest sign that there is intelligent life out there in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us." (Calvin and Hobbes/Bill Waterson)

We need to come up with some more

I'm open to more ideas...

some more things for cards

How about these ideas that have just popped into my head...

- Design a garden. Lay out a map of your garden in index cards and rearrange the flowers

- Price 'tags' for car-boot or garage sales

- Remembering song words

- Collectors lists. Keeping track of the items needed for a collection (eg. finding that elusive one armed dark vader doll.)

- Recording favourite foods and what restaurant/cafe you ate them at so you can go there again. (Also recording the meals that you never want to eat again.)

- Score card for those games played in the car on long trips, to stop arguments. "Yes, Billy, you did win I spy but Amy has found more white horses so she gets a chocolate too."

- Writing excuses for why you are late for work while in transit. ;-)

- Stopping a table from wobbling by placing a stack of cards under the 'wonky' leg

- Recording uses for index cards ;D
