How to Organize Important Documents in an Emergency
Now that you have all your important documents together and organized, it’s time to celebrate. You have peace of mind knowing that in the event of an emergency, your documents are ready to go. But don’t think you have to stop there. The great thing about learning an organizing practice like this is knowing how you can apply it to other areas of your life. As we mentioned before, emergencies happen when we least expect them, so it’s good to be a little prepared. If you think getting your important documents in order has made you want to create an emergency bag or kit, follow the same steps. Make a plan, match what’s similar, and figure out where you should keep it.
You can even use the steps here to organize other places in your home that have nothing to do with emergencies. If you’re looking forward to getting your kitchen in order, follow the same method. Sort similar items together, declutter what isn’t necessary, and organize them in a way that makes sense to you. And accept that no house is perfectly organized. In reality, Straighten things out believes that imperfection is at the heart of the organization. This is because you are always going to learn new methods and tricks. So if your emergency package isn’t exactly what you imagined, know that you can improve it. All that matters is that you have a plan, and that’s what National Preparedness Month is all about.
