Think a fireproof safe is overkill? Try this.

 
 This cool space saving gadget is great for important papers you want to protect from fire. No need for a big bulky safe!
 

File this under “How did I not know this existed?” This past week a client of mine showed me where he keeps 2 very important record books for his business. The data is also recorded digitally, but since he’s been generating project numbers by hand since the early days of his company, there’s a lot of nostalgia on those pages. He continues to use these two notebooks daily (meanwhile, his executive assistant enters it all on the cloud).

As he’s sharing about how beloved these notebooks are, I asked where he keeps them. He pulled out this fireproof envelope! In all my years of organizing, I had never seen such a thing. He’s aware that it might not protect items to the extent that a fireproof safe would, but it’s an added layer of peace of mind that saves space, and is easy to reach in and out of throughout the day.
