    Well I have this question on how to better organize my contacts

    How do you guys organize them in your address book?

    The way I have it done so far is I created folders for Suppliers, Staffing organizations, Sponsors, Hotels, Work...

    I'm an event freelancer, and was thinking of doing something better for the Work section.

    Since I work on project to project basis (mostly organizing concerts and festivals), should I create 1 folder per project, and put all the contacts for that particular project in the respective folder? But the thing is, sometimes I work for different projects with the same people. What should I do in this case?

    :dunno:

    Outlook can search the notes field in the contact, I'd try using keywords for each contact, music, lighting, catering, licensing, strippers, etc.

    That's Outlook 2007, I don't have any earlier version handy to check, but I'd imagine that it's the same.
