Organization || Family Binder


There are so many things that need to be done before moving 
or in preparation to move that it has my head spinning. 
The only way I can keep up is to stay organized. 
Since we are being packed up and moved by a professional moving company there are some things that we simply don't want them to move for us. 
Some of those things are all of our personal important documents. 
When we moved from Georgia to New York I created a family binder that held all of those documents. It was easy to keep up when during the move and I didn't have to worry about anything getting lost or misplaced. Honestly, I haven't touched this thing since we moved other than grabbing a document here or there. 

One of the many things on my to do list was to add Kensington and Quinn to the binder. 

Meet our Family Binder

I think I paid $3 for this binder at Target a few years ago. It's just a simple 3-ring binder. 

Each of us has our own folder, even the dogs. 
I really like these folders. They are pocket folders that button and fit into the 3-ring binder.

You don't have to worry about anything falling out with the snap closure. 

Not only do I put important documents in each our folders but I also put things that I would be devastated if they turned up missing.  

What we include:
Marriage Certificate
Birth Certificates
Draft Card
Social Security Cards
Baby Footprints (I would be heartbroken if these got lost)
Hospital Bracelets (Devastated if lost)
Immunization records (for the people of the house)
Copies of health & dental insurance cards
Other important certificates
Immunization records and tags (for the pups)

I love that everything is in one place for quick access for moving or in case of an emergency {or a zombie apocalypse!}

How do you store your important documents?  Do you have a family binder? What all do you include in it?

  1. So smart! We just moved, and I feel like it was chaos. Definitely gonna do this before the next move (which hopefully won't be for awhile!) Good luck with your move, I know how crazy it can be!

  2. I love this! I feel like our stuff is so unorganized and this is so simple, but cute!
