If you scan them into a database, then you can sort them multiple ways--by whatever methods you want.

It can work to have separate card boxes for different subjects: personal, business, etc. Business can be grouped into vendors, associates, association members, etc. Or simply file them by company name and then sort them occasionally to delete the out of date or no longer of interest contacts. Of course, a backup file of old contacts can come in handy if you need references or go networking for a job.
