I have been responsibility for our record keeping for the past few years. YOU know, filing receipts, and keeping records of Insurance, car tags, maintenance on vehicles, home & life insurance, utilities, etc. It wasn’t so bad when we lived in the motor home, all the records just rode with us. BUT when we began living in this house part time, I was carrying about 50 pounds of folders up and down stairs. Not smart at Sherry’s age. LOL
She has years of clerk and secretary experience. I asked her to help me cut the files down. She worked with me for two days. She is pretty danged smart. Together we cut it down to about half.
She let me know I did not need a full year’s water bills in the file. Same with all monthly recurring bills. Also I named my files wrong, and misfiled lots of STUFF.
I had our records for the last four home closings and improvement receipts.
Now my records weight about 7 pounds with 3 pounds of permanent records that needs not travel with us.
We found my original SS card, issued in 1956. And a free pass to the USS North Carolina Museum given to us many years ago, by the ships skipper.
Anyway it was two days well spent, for me.
I seem to never know what to keep in the records and what to throw away. Anyway I am a much happy camper after my girl helped me. I am just a lucky dude!
PS: I actually have a file labeled ‘Death’; Black and filed under ‘D’. It contains the wills, Ins info, power of attorney, and information of who to notify. I just kept it as it is but MUST review it. Sister Shirl insisted I do it years ago. I think my obit is in there. I must check. I am eligible for a free burial at sea, but my girl refuses!
