My pile of business

| No Comments

My pile of business cards, an essential tool for business and social relations in Japan, is starting to overflow. I am having trouble locating the ones I need. It's time to reorganize them.

I have two books with clear plastic pockets that are full of meishi already. I find this system to be tidy, but not altogether practical. One book is mainly contacts from my volunteer organization; the other is business contacts. But sometimes they overlap and my filing system doesn't have any place for the dozens of cards I pick up from restaurants. There has to be a better way.

Some people might suggest that I need to buy a little device that scans business cards and stores them electronically. But I disagree. What I really need is a Rolodex.
