National Organize Your Files Week: Do I Need A Safety Deposit Box?

Literally Misplacing Money

When we were younger, our parents used to do Easter egg hunts with us on Easter morning with plastic eggs. Green eggs were filled with money (ranging from $1-$5- don’t worry no 100s in our eggs) and the other colors were filled with candy. On one particular year, my parents decided to take the fun outdoors to the backyard.

They hid 15 green eggs and they were tasked with remembering where they hid each one. Long story short… we found egg #15 four years later by accident in the yard! How it was not taken by the hundreds of animals that may have come in contact with it is beyond me. Anyway, the point of the story is that a lot of times we think we have a good grasp of where we put things. Even if we just put it there 20 minutes ago, as in the case with the hidden eggs.

Many of us think the same with our important financial documents, possessions, and heirlooms. We have all put something in a ‘safe spot’ only to pull our hair out trying to remember where we put it!

A safety deposit box has been a popular method to keep important items in a safe place. However, there are some questions that arise such as:

  • What exactly is it?
  • What do I put in it?
  • Why do I need it?
