Important point on the documents. PITA to get them replaced. And some have sentimental attachment like birth or marriage certificates. Throw photos in
there as well.
That's right. Can you imagine the bureaucracy after one of these monsters?
We have all sat somewhere waiting for red tape under good situations and with ID.
You get the idea about ID.
If you can at all help it, avoid paper images, unless they are old. You cant pack all that with you.
Best option for that is secure it and leave it.
Again, bags are your best friend here.
Take a Rubbermaid container (storage bin), nothing over 25L or it wont go in a bag or knot.
Fill the bin utilizing space, put your name and a contact number on a piece of paper on top, put the lid on then wrap it a few times with tape. You
don't want the lids opening, as the sharp edges of the images can tear the bags. So tape em in place.
Place them in bags tie them off tightly, repeat.
If you do not have many paper photos to do up, you can store the finished product in the oven. Secure the oven door. More than likely when the mess
gets cleaned up, someone will have found your photos,and if they have not moved then you'll know exactly whereto find your pictures of Granny.
All your trying to do here is preserve something you can not pack with you. And if you do try and pack them with you, you will loose them.
You all should have a plan in place for these little things that are not replaceable. Photos, family heirlooms, etc.
All your digital images should already be on memory sticks and secured zip lock bags, and hidden or secured somehow.
