Recently Scott Haskins, the “Save Your Stuff” guy attended the Jewish Genealogical Fair and while he was there, stopped for a moment to show us a scrapbook that was badly damaged by water. Scott sees keepsakes like this all the time, when he and his restoration experts are called in to save the day — or at least save as many memories as humanly possible.
It just goes to demonstrate how important it is to take that few minutes to ensure that the things that are important to you and your family — photos, documents, certificates — even music and videos — are backed up, saved to multiple locations and the originals saved in a safe, moisture free, secure location.
Those of you who are familiar with Scott’s work from his book How To Save Your Stuff From A Disaster, already know that he’s a world-renowned expert on preservation. But if you’ve never seen him in action, take a look at the video below. We highly recommend his work and his website, which you can find at saveyourstuff.com.
Take it away, Scott and thanks for being our person in the field this week!
Have Fun Getting Your Stuff Together! We’ll talk later…
