This Sparked Me!

    I am somewhat of an organizational nut and this never occurred to me. Insurance papers immediately come to mind,. I also have Carbonite (used it a time or two and was so pleased I paid the yearly price!) and in the event of a disaster who of us could find the stuff we need. Thanks for sharing!

    What an awesome way to keep papertrail, and keep the garbage waste down and save the environment.
