I came across this blog - "The Mindmap Blog" the other day. The "Mindmap" is a template for organizing your personal and financial documents more efficiently.
Chance Brown has created this wonderful Personal and Financial Records Mindmap. Read his blog and see if this template can work for you.
Click on the picture below to see an enlarged image of the Mindmap.
Mr. Brown has organized the Personal and Financial Records Mindmap into four major categories:
***Records you Carry With You
***Current Active Records
***Permanent Active Records
***Safe Deposit Box
It's important to store your important personal papers away from home in case of fire, flood or theft. Make photocopies to keep at home but put the originals in a bank safe deposit box if possible.
