What do you do with old business cards that you no longer use?
I am preparing for my first work travel trip in two years. Yup, TWO YEARS!! Where did the time go? So I was going through and cleaning out my work travel briefcase on wheels (which is awesome). I found an old, wrapped fruit bar (still good), a roll of tamper-evident tape used for returning study drug, lots of pads of sticky notes, paperwork from a study I worked on 2 years ago, and business cards with my maiden name on them!
I was just about to toss those business cards in the recycling bin when I realized that I could reuse them. Yeah, go, super green me! So I turned them over and they are sitting on my desk waiting to be used for jotting quick notes of whatever I need. Only then will they end up in the recycle bin.
As a side note, I was at a study site here in Portland yesterday, and I suddenly had to introduce myself to a site worker, and I began to introduce myself using my maiden name! Duh! You would think I was a newlywed rather instead of having been married almost 3 years. Ha ha!
