Preparing for the Move--Contents of Your Records Box

Moving on Mondays

Last week, we talked about creating a portable storage box for your paperwork. In addition to paperwork, include the following in your storage system:

• Pens and pencils for writing notes (pencils work best because you can erase and change information on your calendars and other schedules)
• A calculator for figuring expenses
• A stapler, paper clips and binder clips for fastening paperwork
• Plastic pockets for receipts, photos, and pamphlets (these come pre-punched to fit in your binder)
• Business card holder (these come in a variety of sizes, including 8 1/2 x 11 pre-punched for your binder)

Everyone in the family should know where the box is at all times, just in case somebody needs something from it. Be very careful where you take this box, or where you leave it, as there will be some personal information inside.
