Website username and password keeper


My mom told me this idea she came up with, and it got my creative juices flowing.  Her way is just fine, but for all of you artsy, crafty folks out there, you can jazz it up a notch.  She went to the dollar store and picked up an address book.  With this book, she is storing all of her usernames and passwords.  Great idea, right?
I am terrible at remembering all of my usernames and passwords.  I used to have them on a little piece of paper, but I misplaced it all the time and always forgot to update it.  I guess it would be easier if I used the same one for everything, but it just doesn't seem real safe to me.  So this little book will keep everything in one place; usernames and passwords at the tip of your fingers, all together.

Just as an example, if you have a Discover Card, put it under the D section, write your username and password in the address section.  Blogger would go under B, and so on and so forth.  Not that I didn't think you all could figure it out, I just wanted to make it crystal clear. 

What you'll need:
1 piece of fabric
1 address book (whatever size you choose)
sewing machine or needle and thread

Here is what I started with




 I laid the address book on it, and folded the ends over to have a place to slide the book into.

Be sure to iron it before you sew it so that it's lined up straight
Make sure it is inside out to sew it

 Sew straight lines.  Be sure that you have a snug fit on the book, but not too close or it won't fit in.
 Flip  right side in, iron it to make everything lay nicely

 Insert the address book 
and volia


 The finished product
I hope it helps you with your organization resolution!  Enjoy


Love, BJ

What a great idea! I'll have to do this...well not the creative "adding a pretty cover" thing. Just buy the phone book part. :)

What a great idea! I'm totally using it--especially since you're supposed to have unique passwords for each site. It's so hard to keep track. I love your blog and am your newest follower!
