    Very good video!  Most businesses and all schools have such books.  Why not us at home.  I never thought of it!  Thank you!

    That was an excellent VID. I'v been tried to organize my personal document for years, but I didn't really know where to start it. It sure looks like a lot of work, but at lease I know how to begin. I wish I have found this sooner. Thank You

    This is the best video ever on combining all the important information needed in case an emergency should occur. I remember my parents having a steel box with all their important information contained inside. I've started to make binders like this but would never complete it due to it being disorganized. You have presented this in such a simple manner that you have inspired me. It also made me aware of certain legal documents I need to seek advise on for the future. Thank you!

    Thank you!  This is some of the most straightforward information on this topic I have seen, just enough detail without overwhelming me.  I love the binder you chose, makes so much more sense than an open binder.

    There is so much info in here that I've had to watch a couple of times. You've given me a couple of more ideas for labeling the binder that I currently use that needs updating. Thanks for you time in putting this on video.
