Transfering several lists into a subfolder in Sharepoint 2010

Is it possible to take several lists (containing Contacts) into one subfolder under lists?

We have several clients that have separate contacts which we link to our Outlook for mass e-mailing.  I had started creating each list individually but would prefer they were organized into a subfolder called Case Contact Lists and then each client would be represented under that heading.

Is this possible and if so, how do I go about doing it?  I have also downloaded and installed the Sharepoint Designer 2010. I must note also that this is the first time I've worked in Sharepoint so detail would be appreciated!!  

Thank you and Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!

Disregard my above comment.  Enabling publishing will show the link in the drop down.  However, you can still get to it without enabling publishing.  See:

Under the Site Settings drop down menu, you should see "Manage Content and Structure".  This is your friend.  You can move list items around using this tool.

Hello, working with SharePoint requires thinking about new ways of doing things. One major difference is that you don't need folders to organise data. Instead you can use metadata. Create a column in the list for the category. The assign each contact its relevant category. You can use views to display data by category.

The concept of folders is no longer required in SharePpoint. To realise the benefits of a SharePoint solution you need to be open for new ways of doing things. Otherwise you may miss out on some good stuff to be had.

Thank you ACH1LLEs but so far I have been unable to locate the area in Sharepoint 2010 for transferring as I have nothing called Manager Content and Structure.  

teylyn, I'm not sure what you mean about metadata.  Each of our clients have a separate e-mail address list and these lists are then linked to Outlook so when changes are made to the list in Sharepoint, it is updated automatically in Outlook and is the reason for the Contact List; however, I'd like to create a subcategory in Lists or Libraries that have ALL of the lists rather than henpecking through all of the Lists - if that makes sense.  Are you trying to say there's different way to do this?

Sorry, you may need to enable "Publishing" feature on your site.  Do you know how to do this?

That is definitely not in my settings.  My list stops at Workflow settings.  I have no Term Store Management, Searchable Columns, Content & Structure , nor Content & Structure Logs.

So there you go...there appears to be the problem.
