Where are those important papers, anyway?

Bookmark and Share  

September 7, 2014

Search the house for all the papers you couldn't afford to be without if you had to evacuate, or if something happened to your home. Include insurance policies, marriage and birth certificates, medical files, military records, financial records and anything else that might be critical for your family. Make a duplicate copy and store it somewhere safe outside your home. Keep all record together, perhaps in a file box that could be easily taken with you.
