Part: II Corral the Paper > Proving It's Yours, Or Should Be

Chapter 6. Proving It's Yours, Or Should Be

In this chapter:

  • Build a set of files for papers related to your belongings

  • Create a comprehensive property inventory

One of the greatest advantages of getting your paperwork organized is that it enables you to quickly put your hands on any document during a crisis. Imagine tearing through file drawers, boxes, and piles, flinging everything onto the floor in a frantic search for your homeowner's insurance policy as the water in your basement rises. Not only would you waste precious time tracking down critical information, but you would also have a terrible mess to clean up later. Thankfully, now that you've completed Chapter 5, “Here to Stay: Storing Documents for Easy Retrieval,” you've given yourself much better odds of finding what you need, when you need it; and, when you finish this chapter, your odds will be even better.
