There is a saying that comes and goes every now and then. They say that gold goes up in recessions and depressions. There is something true about it. Just think about the status of the gold for the past 5,000 years. The last decade is a good landmark, too. For all this time, gold was considered to be a safe-haven.

Anything of sentimental value. Movers do not want the responsibility of handling your family heirlooms, albums, baseball card collections, and the like. Take anything irreplaceable with you or place it in a Safe deposit box for sale.

Start a Memory Box for your children’s prized artwork, sentimental childhood possessions, schoolwork, etc. They can decide, with you, what goes in it. You can have a master Memory Box, and one for the current school year. At the end of the school year, your child, with your help, can revisit the year, purging any items that are not vital enough to go in the master Memory Box.

A HTML Editor is a software application to write web pages. There are several brands in the market, including Microsoft Frontpage, Adobe Dreamweaver and so on. Personally I would encourage you not to use Microsoft Frontpage, as it tends to add proprietary codes to your pages, making it difficult to be edited with a different HTML Editor. The one I use is called Homesite, also from Adobe. I learned to write webpages with Homesite.

Wrong executor: Name an executor who will manage your estate from the time of your death until the time that your assets are distributed. This is a big job, so make sure the person has the time and the ability to do it. Also name a backup in case the chosen person refuses the job at your death.

CDs or an external hard drive containing digital copies of all family photos. It’s a good idea to scan all older family photos and keep a digital copy of them as well. Your family memories in photographs are irreplaceable.

Not telling where you keep the will: Only have ONE COPY of the will that has been properly executed with signatures. Keep unsigned copies for your own records. DON’T keep the signed copy in a bank safe deposit box, which could be sealed at your death.
