Wanting to eliminate paper & following a suggestion to put important files off-site, I started using a Cloud Storage program called Orggit. With Orggitt I put things like the contents of my wallet, DL & credit cards with passwords & card numbers. Make files for absolutely anything (meds, medical history, kids info, copies of your mortgage, warranties, etc - with a cabinet for each category). Orggit uses bank-level Secure-socket security, plus encryption to store your files. With this level of
security, YOU or your designee can access info from anyplace & print it out. Heart attack, been in a major accident? Access files & print medical histories, including any meds or supplements. You can do it for everyone in your family. Costs $49.99 a year - $0.14 a day. Safe, secure & available.
I purchased a file box that holds 3.5 index cards, 3.5 colored index cards, months of the year and 1-31 cards. I then took and made a list of all the household chores, hair cuts and yearly apts and seperated them by how often they needed to be done and assigned them by color. Yellow for daily chores, pink 1/week, Green 1/ month, orange every 2 weeks and blue 1/year. I wrote on the cards the chore assigned to the color and then placed them in the index box on the days I wanted to do them
Instead of labeling gifts with name tags, use color-coded stars or stickers to identify who that package is for. Keep the code a secret until Christmas morning. Saves time and money and adds to the excitement and suspense. This is especially effective for the overly curious spouse or child.
