- chapter-by-chapter coverage of topics
- forms to accompany each chapter.
The general gist is that you should create a binder with one section for each chapter - on an as needed basis. Not everyone has children, a house, pets. You can work through your paperwork by using the pages in the book or by going online, where you can either download blank forms or type right into them.
I am including photos of both the section on pets and the relevant forms so you can get the general idea.
While you can purchase the large blue binder to accompany this set, I advice against it. The book is worth the $16 I paid for it; the binder is seriously overpriced. Here is the review I wrote of the binder:
This large blue binder with tabs is a companion to the book Get It Together. If it cost $10 instead of $26, I would have bought four.
HERE'S WHAT YOU GET:
- a large blue binder
- tabbed white dividers that correspond to the sections of the accompanying book (purchased separately)
HERE'S WHAT YOU DON'T GET:
- dividers with pockets for those items you really do not want to punch holes into
That's right! You still have to print out or photocopy all of the forms yourself! If those had been included, I also might have just suffered through paying for four binders.
HERE'S WHAT TO DO INSTEAD:
Buy the book Get It Together.
Buy a binder.
Buy tabbed dividers.
Create sections in your binder to accompany your actual needs. Not everybody needs 28 sections.
I got this book, and went to Staples and got the binder etc... I will say that this author also sells a binder / sheet protector combo deal. That probably would have been less expensive that my route.
Once I started working the book, it is very easy to follow. It is broken down into sections. The premise being that you take your three ring binder, and break it into the same sections. Each section covers one topic. You put all relevant documents into that section of your binder. Some of these, you'll need to probably create, and some are probably more important than others. One nice part about this book is how comprehensive it is. While I can't say I used every possible page, I did find myself using a lot more than I would have otherwise thought I would need.
The book also has a number of forms that you can pull out, write on, and then put them in your binder if you choose. Another option it gives is to go to a website, and download the forms, type on them, print them out, and then put them in your binder. Again, some you will choose to use, others won't apply to your situation.
All in all, this book served it's purpose very well. My family's "stuff" is much more organized. Now, when I get to go to see Jesus, I know that my wife can pull this one binder, and have all our family's relevant information at her fingertips. That gives me peace of mind.
