The 25 Documents You Need Before You Hit The Road

One of the things I struggle with when it comes to road prep are which documents I need to have readily accessible for myself or a loved one, in case of an emergency

The Consumerist comes through again with an post taken from Wall Street Journal/Wall Street Investor. WSJ references death, with regard to the article and graphic. In reality, it's something that would make things easier in case of any type of emergency or catastrophe.

The article goes into more detail, but the graphic really simplifies it.

Good information whether your traveling, or not!

If you're anything like me, you may not need all of these documents if you've unloaded prperty, and most of what you own.


  1. Important info in this article...I might have missed it but nowadays it is good to put your passwords to any on line accounts somewhere.....

  2. Good to know. I'll have to share this with DH who is managing his dad's documents right now.

  3. Good idea! Also, leave copies or originals with someone else just in case.

  4. Good thoughtful post, Cyndi. I am like you, everything must go. I am not leaving anything of value behind.

  5. There is no hope that I will ever be organized.
    I guess I am grounded for life.

    Thanks for showing me something I need to work on.

    I do not show it online but I am actually working on getting rid of "stuff." Leaving money after I die does not seem to be a major concern at this point.

  6. AFCG! thanks for stopping by! YES! Someone needs access to passwords!

    Kim, glad I could help

    B, definitley!

    Michael, I've been carrying the baggage long enough!

    Dogsmom, Dang! If I was still collecting I'd want to be at your yard sale!
