Hold Tight

I'm working on a product review for THIS. I think this is something that everyone should have and something you definitely want your parents to have! You can check it out while you wait at the link above. Even if you think you are organized and have everything together I seriously doubt you have it this together. I want to give you a really thorough review because I know you can't get a good feel for what this is or what is really included from the website. The best thing about this (not just the price) is how portable it is. Do any of you already have this?

I think it is easiest for me just to tell you what it is like...

Okay I'll be back with the written version.

Sorry today has been particularly crazy, Kid had a b'day party, Blogger has been difficult. I'm trying....

I have it.....haven't actually put everything in yet. We don't have kids and we just moved into our first house this last year. Someone gave it to me a couple of years ago. Easy to use...only thing is....if anything changes, you don't have replacement paper and my anal retentive mind likes to have everything PERFECT! Might have to pull that out this weekend and fill it out! Thanks for the reminder!

This thing looks like it is right up my alley. I love all manner of organizers and binders. (Dork.) Not sure if it's included, but a project I have been meaning to get to is having family medical history from both sides written down. Who has heart issues, skin cancer, etc. Finn & Co. should have that info in the future and if no one write it down, we could lose access to that information.

Katy,
"you don't have replacement paper and my anal retentive mind likes to have everything PERFECT!"
Yes, I too suffer from this disorder. I'm wondering if you might actually be able to get replacement pages. I have noticed there are lots of repetitive blanks for somethings so you could in theory use them for updated info. I guess the real point is you should have it for now since you are living in the now moment. I really wish our three sets of parents had it. Even though I know they have some of this organized having it all in one spot would be so much easier and just a stress reliever if anyone had to intervene for some reason.


Eileen,
I think you'd like it. The medical section is geared toward your medical history but there is a pretty big blank space so you could include that yourself... or hey it is a binder you could add whatever pages you wanted. Plus each section has a folder pocket for extra stuff. And it is well made and still cheap.

I love to be organized but I would have to say that that part of our lives is not! I would be lost if something happened to my husband. Better yet, if both of us were gone, what would happen to the kids! We have talked about these kinds of things but haven't done anything about it. Plus my husband invests, so I wouldn't have a clue as where to get that info. I will mention this item to my husband. Great idea and thank you for sharing it with us.

Tam-e,
This system actually has a very thorough investments section. I have to say I never would have bought this for myself but looking through it was a real eye opener regarding ALL the stuff you would need to know that never even occurred to me.
