There was a thread on Mumsnet, discussing the merits of keeping a grab bag close to hand,
for emergencies such as fire or flood.
The grab bag could contain such items as birth certificates, Passports,
Insurance documents etc.
Several countries including the USA recommend such a bag and actually list what it should contain.
Whilst sitting here, I cannot for the life of me remember the names of our home or car insurers..
As like most people we are constantly changing them for a better deal.
In the event of fire and certificates being lost, I would have to hope that I could obtain the info and relevant companies by trawling through emails.
Maybe it is a case for e-documents rather than paper copies.
Would it be safer to replace our upstares wood filing cabinet with a metal one or purchase a metal safe?
Our house deeds, Will and LPAs are lodged with our solicitor.
In January when we do the dreaded trawl of the comparison sites, I will photo copy and leave copies with our DD.
Do any GNers have a grab bag?
During the war both my grandmothers kept all their family documents in their handbags, which went with them into the air raid shelters.
