papers – 6 may 2016

November is the “Files/Finances” month in my Happiness Project. In 2013, 2014, and 2015, I’ve spent a LOT of time organizing my paper files, my computer files, my iTunes, my email, and more. We’ve written a will. I created health histories for me and the girls. I created academic files for the girls. We’ve gathered serial numbers into a document. I backup my computers monthly. I still have a ways to go with creating a budget, an emergency preparedness plan, and some other things.

I now have a yearly schedule to help me stay on track with the files and finances.
