Direct Sales Saga #1: The Tickler File

Yesterday I went to the store to pick up my note cards - you know, I thought this would be easy.

They didn't have a file box the right size for my note cards and I didn't want to shell out extra bucks for the bigger cards.

Yeah, sometimes I'm lazy. So I got the bigger box and the smaller cards. They rattle a bit, but they work.

I also found those 1-31 and Jan-December tabs to complete the file. It's an added cost, but makes it easier to find your tabs when you're filing.

All my supplies at Office Depot were just under $15. I got 300 index cards - and will probably need a few more. But it's a good start. Today, I start the task of putting the leads on the cards.

If any of you have questions or comments, please share. We're all here to learn.
