Paper clutter is one of the areas that most people struggle to keep under control. From mail, to junk mail, to the kids’ homework, to essential life documents. Not to mention the time-sensitive papers and the permanent records that are to be kept. Paper clutter is difficult to stay on top of; especially when they are papers that you know you shouldn’t throw away, but do not have a clue how to keep organized.
Life documents such as mortgages, estate plans, passports, bank records, vehicle titles, etc., are all documents that are not referenced often, but in the case of an emergency, need to easily be found.
Think of it this way. If something suddenly happened to you, would your spouse, family, or children know where to find all of the information they would need to plan for a funeral and/or take care of your personal items? Would they be able to find the information they need to close out accounts? Questions you hope to never have to deal with, but questions that are inevitably going to have to be answered someday.
Now you may be wondering where to even start? You are envisioning all of the places where these life documents might be stored, but wonder how to neatly organize them all in one place?
That is where Smead’s new Life Documents Kit comes in handy. This kit helps organize all of those life documents you have always wondered how to organize. The kit comes with a black case with a secure clip:
6 standard colored hanging folders, and manila file folders to store all of these important papers in and on top of that, it also comes with preprinted quick-fold tabs that are also color coded with the labels: Financials, Contact Information, Communication and Wishes, Personal, Ownership, and Health. These labels are attached to the hanging folders:
These folders really do cover every life document you can think of. Sometimes these type of kits can take weeks to organize because it is difficult to think of what categories to include, but Smead has thought of them all! In organizing my own, I have not found a category that I have needed, that it did not include.
The only downside to this kit is that it is not fire or waterproof. Of course then it would require a whole different look and cost, but some of my documents I do still want to keep in our fire and waterproof case, for the just in case. Other than that, it has been very handy to have and it is very easy to now locate these important life documents.
