Cash strapped

Avoid unnecessary trips to the bank. You waste nearly 20 hours a year when you stop at the bank every two weeks to withdraw money. Save that time by withdrawing enough cash to last until you receive your next paycheck.


Organize your family's health history and important information. Whether you choose a notebook, binder, folder, or other system, make sure it can hold all the pertinent information: medical conditions, medications, allergies, family history, major medical events, immunizations, appointments, symptoms sheet, questions and answers, healthcare professionals' contact information, directions, and any more. The more details you can supply the doctor, the better chance of a quick, accurate diagnosis and treatment.
