  • I live in an NYC high-rise and since I have no control of my neighbor's habits, I think it would probably be wise if I started using a fireproof safe for my hard-to-replace documents. I was thinking of one with a safety window of one-to-two hours, but I don't want to spend a fortune. Any recces for a brand or a specific model ... something under $300? Thx.

Suggest you scan all important docs onto your hard drive, auto backup to the cloud with Dropbox (free) and bank safe deposit box for those irreplaceable docs that must be retained in the original and can't easily be replaced. If an asteroid hits your house, all will be instantly available (assuming you were not home at the time) as soon as you find an Internet-connected computer (or phone).

Having scanned/ PDF copies of essential documents also saves loads of time when inevitably some agency or insurance company asks you to verify that your children are, in fact, your children.

Cool tools really work.

A cool tool can be any book, gadget, software, video, map, hardware, material, or website that is tried and true. All reviews on this site are written by readers who have actually used the tool and others like it. Items can be either old or new as long as they are wonderful. We post things we like and ignore the rest. Suggestions for tools much better than what is recommended here are always wanted.
