On Becoming Prepared

February 27th, 2009 at 02:52 am

My husband and I have been talking about some of the "value add" things we can be doing while I'm on maternity leave. Things with baby #2 have been awesome and I love feeling productive, so I was excited to brainstorm some of these ideas together.

Tonight I got a good start on one of these tasks. My husband created an excrypted memory stick that we'll keep locked up in our safe - I'm adding all of the account log-in information for our finances, insurance, etc so that my husband will have all of this at his fingertips should anything happen to me. He knows most of them, but having everything in one place will be good insurance in the event that we should ever need it.

I know it can be scary or just plain dumb to write this stuff down but I feel good about the encryption software and our personal safe - consider doing this for yourself as well. You never know when you might need this information.

Up next - making a photocopy of everything in my wallet & stashing that away in the safe as well. In the event my wallet is stolen all contact #s and account numbers are compiled so things can be canceled quickly and I don't feel the stress of trying to remember what was in my wallet.

Anyone have any suggestions for what else should be on my list? Am I going about this the right way or are their other options for how to accomplish these tasks securely?
