Why We Can't Be Completely Paperless

This form is designed to be used during the Organize Contact Information Challenge here on the site, which is part of the 52 Week Organized Home Challenge.

I've provided printables for several parts of this challenge, if you want them, although some people choose to keep all this information electronically, because they don't want to create more paper clutter.

In general I think that is completely fine, and can in some instances work better then keeping all contact information completely in paper form.

But one of the few times during this challenge I really say, "you really need to do this," as opposed to "I suggest you do this," is now. So fill out this simple form below.

Why? Because we've all had our smart phone battery die, or lose our phone, or the computer or laptop hard drive to fizzle.

No system is perfect, and electronic methods of organization have their dangers.

And yes, you can and should have back ups for that information electronically, so you say, "no big deal, I don't need this. I have an electronic back up."

My question to you is, have you ever restored from a back up? It can and often does work, but it can be a pain in the butt. Just think of this little one page piece of paper as the back up to the back up.

Until you can restore all the contact information from a back up, you've got the most important people's contact information listed on this one page of paper so you don't have to sweat while you go through the steps of restoring everything, or can plug in your phone to recharge, or . . . you name it.

Instructions For Using This Form

Now that I've hopefully convinced even the most die-hard anti-paper people to just list these people, here's instructions for how to use this form.

First, whose information should you put in here? You will know the answer to that better than I would, which is why the form is generic, but suggestions includes spouse and kids' numbers, along with frequently called numbers for your work, other family, and friends.

This isn't quite the same as your emergency contact list, but if you feel like having your doctor's number, or something similar is important, put it down. You make your priorities of what is most important to you.

Make two copies of this form. Keep one in your household notebook, and the other somewhere folded up in your purse or wallet. Just do it and you might thank yourself later!
