Don’t roll your eyes. Don’t find some way to delay organizing your personal financial records by binge watch a TV show you already binged watched! It’s time to get all those receipts and other paper work that’s needed for your tax records to be put in their proper folders.
While you’re at it locate your other important documents and file them away such as, insurance policies, living will, your mortgage and your New Year’s resolution to get organized. If you put it all on computer, be sure to back it up, nothing lasts forever.
Some folks like using a simple binder with the important papers neatly organize inside – something that sits on a shelf so if something happens to you, it’s all in one place.
You can also scan all your important documents and put them on a flash drive and then put it in your safety deposit box. Flash drives are more stable than other storage mediums, though nothing lasts forever.
I myself have a huge back tattoo with all my information, I had them do it backwards so I can read it in a mirror. Not my best idea, and YES, it hurt.
When you get this all done you’re going to feel a lot better because you’ll know where all of your important stuff is.
Ready, set, organize!
