Unprepared Can Cost Ya

June 8th, 2009 at 06:51 pm

So last week, I realized I couldn't find my driver's license. However, I felt that it was likely in my house somewhere since I switch purses and sometimes just keep my license in my back pocket (not the best idea, I know!)

So I cleaned and organized and check piles of papers, went through my purses, went through my car, checked my pants, the washer and dryer. Finally, I gave up.

Then I went online to check what was needed to get a new license. I need $10 and basically a bunch of documents that I could NOT easily get my hands on.

My mind was running through how long it'll take to get the stuff and what are my chances of getting pulled over without my license? It would have been EXPENSIVE!

So in the end, after I started getting the paperwork together, I did one last check of my purse - which I'd already gone through several times. And in between a bunch of checks in my checkbook - there was my license!!!

So crisis adverted - but I'm still going to get that documentation where I would be able to use it quickly. Planning ahead never hurt anyone Smile

    I have all my "fire documents" (deeds, car title, passport, wills ((though they are not notarized yet)) insurance paperwork and what not) in a plastic tupperwear bin in my desk. In the event of a fire- it melts. In the event of anything else- I know where it is. Smile

    I have all those papers in a safe deposit box...not exactly the handiest thing, but it forces me to think ahead!
