30 day Project – January 2022
It's the start of a new year and a new month. So its also time to start on a new 30 day Project. December’s 30 day Project was just coming up with Project ideas, and, although, the ideas slowed down a bit toward the end of the month, there are still plenty of good ones to choose from . The holidays slowed down posting significantly, and then on the tail ed of the holiday, I got sick (as did most of the county). So now here we are, ready to start doing actual projects instead of talking about what projects to do. Here's my first 30 day Project of 2022:
Comprehensive Financial Recording
I handle almost all the finances in my house. My wife doesn't really know much about them or really care. Finance interests me and doesn't interest her at all. But we are both getting concerned about what will happen if something were to happen to me. Our financial life and investments are . . complicated. And I would not expect her (or most normal people) to be able to figure out a lot of what and why we are doing things. Our first step was to get a financial advisor on Board – someone who isn’t me who knows about our finances and can provide good advice to my wife if I cant for whatever reason. We did that last year.
But I have a lot of investments that I manage myself and she would need tp understand what they are and how to get access. She has been after me for several years to make a physical book with all of this information in it. So that is what I will be doing this month. Creating a book on waterproof paper to keep with our estate and other important records that explains our financial life.
I will not be adding to the blog much this month while I work on this, maybe an occasional update here and there, but you should (if you have not already) for this month and regroup here a the end for some accountability. I will do the same.
See you then.
