Everything you need to get organized
This

information and documents into a records binder. For each topic, you
will find helpful content, rich resources, and step-by-step
instructions.
Also, available: A companion Binder & Tab Set, by
Melanie Cullen. To purchase, search for "get it together binder and tab
set." Do your loved ones know where to find your life insurance
policies, online banking passwords, real estate deeds, or even your
will?
If you’re like a lot of people, you keep important
information―from the whereabouts of family heirlooms to online passwords
to automatic bill-pay details―in your head or stashed in the odd desk
drawer. Unfortunately, this disorganization will likely cause hassles
for those who someday take care of you or your estate.

It Together

others keep track of:
  • secured places and passwords

  • employment records
  • insurance policies
  • real estate records

  • tax records
  • retirement accounts
  • estate planning documents
  • funeral arrangements
  • letters to loved ones
This
updated 8th edition is a guide to gathering records, an organizer for
you, and a road map for your survivors.

This book was good but challenging to get through. So much to do to be prepared, but it'll be worth it!

When I saw the author giving examples of the kinds of service people that might need to be notified if you passed away, like those with standing appointments, and I saw “piano tuner”, I knew this was a thorough book. Reading through, I was continually surprised by that thoroughness. The book is mostly the instructions to fill out forms detailing the many aspects of your life that might need to be dealt with should you pass away. Things like account information, instructions on care for your pets When I saw the author giving examples of the kinds of service people that might need to be notified if you passed away, like those with standing appointments, and I saw “piano tuner”, I knew this was a thorough book. Reading through, I was continually surprised by that thoroughness. The book is mostly the instructions to fill out forms detailing the many aspects of your life that might need to be dealt with should you pass away. Things like account information, instructions on care for your pets and your house, and details on your requests for funeral arrangements. After these instructions, the book contains sample forms to capture this information, and also offers these forms in downloadable RTF and PDF formats (think electronically editable versus printable for filling by hand). The book even provides some basic education on topics such as social security, insurance, and the cost of funerals. Did I catch anything this book missed? Yes, it left out returning borrowed library books and cancelling holds. Given the thoroughness shown here, I would give odds this will make the next edition. Could you get by just downloading and filling out the forms? You could do that, but I believe you will miss some of the discussion around the choices involved in those forms. I think that the instructions in the book are valuable in and of themselves. I will be working through these forms for myself and my parents. ...more

If I was going to mark this book down, it would be for having too much information. It's really hard to fault the author for being so thorough, though.

This is not a guide or template for creating a will or health care directive or other legal document. Instead, it's a guide (with hundreds of planner pages) to putting together a binder containing all of the information someone might need if you die or are incapacitated.

Detailed and comprehensive system of organizing important documents. In addition to a section of worksheets, it includes a CD so your information can be typed in and saved. This system can save hours of work and frustration for an executor, give peace of mind in the event of a quick evacuation or disaster, and give a clear picture of your financial status. Every family needs a system of organizing documents and financial information, and this is one of the best I have seen.

Looks like a good organizational tool. I think this would be a great book if you had a couple months to implement it. Basically you organize only important papers and leave a specific list and instructions for those you leave behind. Certainly would have made things easier for my family had my dad done anything like this.

The hardest part is coming to the realization that death is inevitable. It offers me topics to think about and discuss with my family. I don't know the answers, so this process needs to take place over a long time (for me). The forms suggest things to consider, but offers flexibility for tailoring to my needs. One will need to review and revise this document over the remainder of one's life.

Have a GoodReads.

Even though death is part of life, few people prepare for it by collecting important documents and contact points that survivors will need to know. This week on Radio Health Journal, experts Melanie Cullen and Karen Lee Cline discuss organizing for the inevitable. Full story here: https://radiohealthjournal.wordpress....

I actually just slogged through the 8th edition as I’m updating my documents and records. Although one size can never fit all, a good portion of the book would apply to most people.

So happy I purchased this book.It's an excellent guide for getting your affairs in order -- in case you become incapacitated or die. Nobody likes to think of such things, but how much worse for your loved ones if you haven't made any arrangements for dealing with the bank, your insurance info, property, pets, etc. This is a workbook is organized into chapters that guide you through the process of preparing and organizing your wishes, records, paperwork in case something happens to you.

Borrowed from the library and never did get to it before it was due. I will re-borrow or buy; a very good idea.
