I have 2 card lists for Birthdays/ anniversaries.
(I have a totally separate list for Christmas Cards)

1) Family & Friends
2) Stamping Friends

I have a list for each by month that I keep in my dayplanner behind the appropriate month. I'm still a 'paper' kind of girl. If you are more computer organized, then DO WHAT WORKS FOR YOU. The important thing is to KNOW AHEAD OF TIME who you want to sends card to. Even if you only do it on a month by month basis.

For the FAMILY - I list them in chronological order by date and in ( ) after their name - the year they were born or married. This is especially important when it comes to kids. Heaven fordbid you send a juvenile card to a teenager. LOL

Most people have an address book. If you've not mailed something to someone in awhile, now is a good time to make sure the address you have is current. Why not give them a quick call to wish them Happy New year and update your address book.

For this week.. Focus on January. You have a couple weeks in January to work on your February list. Remember... Once you organize this, you're good to go for the rest of the time you intend to mail cards. Let's put this on track together!

I'll post pics in a couple minutes of my list and where I keep my cards.

Merry Christmas Kelly!!!
I have one list for birthday/anniversaries that I have in an Excel file. I have a formula that calculates the age (# of years for anniversaries) so all I have to do is print out the list at the beginning of the year and I leave it on my craft table. I need 4 birthday cards and 1 anniversary card for January.

In addition, I'm going to do one of the OSW's for Monday or Tuesday as I also will need 5 - 6 birthday cards for February as I signed up to be on the Birthday RAK this year and my first month will be February.
