Personal Information That You Should Have

It’s important to keep all of our information in one place but sometimes things get.. out of place.  As adults having that happen can mean serious time taken out of our schedule down the road if we do need to get a replacement.

The first thing that you need to do is find out how you want to store them.  Make sure you can keep them all in one place.  I use an accordion file but some people I know use binders or file cabinets/ boxes.  I prefer these because you don’t need to punch holes in anything or have folders.  Whatever you chose, make sure you can keep everything together.

Personal Papers:

  • Birth Certificates
  • Social Security Cards
  • Passports
  • Health Insurance Information

There is a time in our lives when we figure out that we are adults. When that time is...we sometimes don't know. Even at 32. I'm just a young woman trying to restart and learn how to live as an adult after years of just making ends meet. Coming out of a divorce was something horrid for Erika, but opening up to my authentic self and finding joy in the things I love has been a huge step forward. Becoming an adult isn't about the age you are at, but being comfortable in what you do, what you love and who you are.
