My top 3 paperwork preparedness solutions
Gather and store critical personal, household, and medical information for easy access during a disaster. I like the Life in Case document organizing solution for grab-and-go convenience.
Make digital copies of important documents and save them on the cloud or a secure cell phone app in case disaster strikes.
Protect against water damage by placing important documents in plastic storage bags.
