It seems I have inherited my filing skills from my father. Or rather, my lack of filing skills.
Here's a little reminder to myself of one thing that has been incredibly helpful:
1. Keep a running list ON PAPER of all my internet accounts and passwords. My dad had one and it's been invaluable.
Digging through papers is incredibly hard. It's like trying to put the puzzle pieces of a life back together. Why do we save some things and not others?
