Book your winter/spring vacation at Hyatt and save 25% during the Hyatt Winter Wander…
We had a few tense moments in the Traveling Well For Less household yesterday when I could not find the boys’ passports.
Even though we’re only going to Hawaii, passports are required because we’re going to Hawaii via a free stopover on American Airlines en route to Australia. I’ll elaborate more on free stopovers in another post.
The passports were not in their secret hiding place. Apparently, so secret, I could not remember where I had put them.
I checked all my secret hiding place spots. And yes, I have more than one. Call me cautious, ok, paranoid. If someone is going to break into my house I’m not going to make it easy for them to find my documents. Electronics I can replace and if it means we’re without a tv or computer for a few months so be it. But not having our documents, that’s going to cause trouble. So, I hide them.
Thankfully the lost passports resurfaced…in one of my secret hiding places. And yes, I did look there yesterday, six times as a matter of fact. For whatever reason, they were cloaked, simply took a vacation on their own, wandered off, were playing hide and seek, or just didn’t want to be found.
Which leads to the question, where do you store your valuable documents? In a secret hiding place? Safe? Safety deposit box?
