Christina’s Day 82… Getting the Legal Stuff Together

Posted by on Mar 1, 2013 in Becoming the Woman God Wants Me to Be

Great check list of things to get together – hmmm not much we probably did not know already but that “avoidance” thing keeps coming into play!  Getting all of the information from your wallet, your passport, legal docs, emergency contacts and any “directives” together NOW is great advice.  I want to get this going and add it to my long term projects so that I have the reminder to keep it up to date and have the family aware of how important it is… Here is my check list:

Christina’s Day 79… PrePay Your Mortgage
