Stuff like passports and visa things I tend to be more on top of so I keep all of it in a neat little stack (along with other important things like: wallet with all US bank cards, US drivers licenses, foreign currency, US bank checkbooks and Swedish/UK bank random number generator thingies) in a specific drawer so 1) I know for peace of mind they are always there and 2) if he needs anything he knows where to get it, and that it goes right back into the drawer once used.
I also file all the paper in the house into an accordion file I got so I wouldnt lose things like P45s, tax info, retirement stuff, gas bills, blah blah blah. Im more plugged into the visa thing so I know which paper to keep and where.
HOWEVER - I hate paying bills so other half deals with that. It seemed like a more equitable division of labor. Do you guys have some way that you could maybe divide things up a bit? (of course there are plenty of days when I feel like I m doing 90% of the house stuff but then we adjust).
Otherwise yeah, that sounds like a seriously crappy week.
Well, I keep all my US travel stuff (CC, passport, BRP card) in a specific wallet, in a specific place where my expired passport is kept.
All of my official paperwork, birth certificate, marriage certificate, NINo, NHS number, are all together as well. I've no idea where my husband's stuff is. His mom still has his birth certificate!
We do share responsibilities. All the bills are set as autopayments, other than the mobiles. And I spend the most time caring for the dogs, I walk them as he often can't.
It's just frustrating when I ask for something and he doesn't do it. He did, for the first time ever, help me remember to take the bins out this week. It's always been me noticing when I take the dogs on a walk.
