I’ve moved a lot during my ‘adult’ life, and as such, I’ve got friends and family across the country, and around the world. Since I don’t see most of them nearly as much as I would like to, I like to send out random gifts every now and then to remind them that I think they’re awesome and to give them a bit of a smile. It can be a silly little craft I’ve made or a card with a note. Often, it’s something that I see online that I know they’d just love.
One frequent benefactor of my online shopping addiction is my soon-to-be-seven year old niece, Maddie. When a friend showed me a new nerdy t-shirt design on one of our favourite shirt-a-day sites the other day, I knew it would be perfect for Maddie.
When I went to fill in Maddie’s address in the shipping details, it occurred to me that I type this address a lot … and I really don’t want to. So, I switched over to 1Password and filled her address into a fresh new Identity item instead. When I switched back to the shipping form, I could fill her address with a few clicks. Now it will be easier than ever to send stuff her way, and I’m quickly filling up my Identities category with the addresses of other family and friends.
Bonus tip: to make this category even more useful, use the notes field of the Identity to store gift ideas – you’ll know where they are when you need them, and they’ll be safe from curious prying eyes!
