What You'll Learn
Clean Up Your Work Area
Finish your project by getting all your documents in place. If you haven't already done so, conduct a home inventory (worksheets are available at uphelp.org). Pair that with receipts, photos, or videos and then store all your paperwork—along with a complete copy of your insurance policy—in a fireproof box.
For extra protection, scan and store all of that information digitally on a flash drive, and remember to keep that off-site, says Bach. If disaster strikes, you don't want this critical information to be at risk too.
