One of the best ways to keep your contacts organized is by making a telephone and address book. Many people do this using templates on Microsoft Word or Apple computers, but others prefer a hard copy that can be kept handy in a home office or in their briefcase or purse. Making a telephone and address book is a quick project that you can do at home.
Things You'll Need
- Pen or marker
- Three-hole punch
- Printer paper
Open a file in your word processor. Type a line for name, street address, city, state, zip code, telephone number and e-mail address.
Print at least 26 copies (one for each letter of the alphabet). It is often best to print at least 52 copies so you have extras if needed.
Purchase a binder to put the pages in.
Punch all the pages with a three-hole punch on the left side of the page.
Starting with the first page cut a one centimeter slit up the right side of the page. Leave a tab to write "A" on. Continue this with every page, but be sure to make the tab lower on each new letter's page.
Label each tab starting with "A" and ending with "Z."
Fill in the information on each page. For a neater look type the information on the word processor before printing out.
