What’s the best way to tackle getting my essential information organized?

It’s best to get started by adding the items that will provide you with the most benefit and are easiest to gather.

For instance, it may be helpful to have a digital copy of your drivers license, insurance card, and other ID cards. These items are likely in your purse, wallet, or stored at home. Simply take a photo or scan of these IDs and put them in the IDs and Cards folder.

Other items may already be stored on your computer or in the cloud. You can simply upload these items into the appropriate folders.

You’ll notice at the top of each folder are a list of suggested uploads. If you scroll through the suggestions, you may find things that you already knew you wanted to store, as well as some things that you hadn’t thought of.
