You made it! Here we are at the last step in organizing our important documents for this first file box. I hope your file is progressing as you keep using your time wisely to get organized.
In this twelfth and last file opening in our box 1 of important documents, I currently have our driving records and incident reports. The last set of documents in this file opening relates to old vehicle paperwork.
Closed Loan Paperwork
Having paid off our car loan for our current vehicle, I have all the original paperwork stapled together, including the letter from our lender stating our loan is paid in full. If I have any issues regarding our clear title at the time we choose to sell this vehicle, I will be able to easily access these documents.
Documentation from Prior Vehicle
Having purchased this car, used it, and then sold it, we kept both bills of sale, copies of the titles, and proof of insurance for this vehicle. If we need to prove that the vehicle is no longer in our possession, I have these dated documents as evidence.
Documentation from Totaled Vehicle
When our vehicle was involved in a hard-hit fender bender, our car was totaled. I keep in this file our original bill of sale, our loan paperwork, the notes from the accident, the proof of the loan paid in full, the bill of sale to the insurance company, and a copy of the check from the insurance company. Should we need to access this information, these documents are housed in this file slot.
Documentation from Trade-In Vehicle
We had purchased a vehicle, used it, and then traded it in to a dealer when we purchased our next vehicle. This packet of documents includes the original bill of sale, copy of the title, and bill of sale to the dealership. These documents are stapled together and included in this set of miscellaneous documents.
All four of these stapled packets of older documents are paper clipped together and housed behind the incident reports in this last file opening in my box 1 of important documents. Wow, this box is now complete!
As you add the final documents to this file, you will have a completed file! Congratulations on getting your important documents gathered, organized, and filed in one location. Enjoy the moment! Now when you need a document from this file, you will know exactly where it is located. Great job using time wisely! What an accomplishment!
Question: Did you finish organizing your first box of important documents? If so, leave me a comment, so I can congratulate you personally!
