PortaVault: The PortaVault enables you to organize your vital records (health, financial, insurance, identification, etc.) so that information is easy to locate when visiting a new doctor or attorney.  It also makes things easy to find and share with family members.  Organizing these records is a great gift for loved ones.  The PortaVault was originally designed as a grab-and-go solution for use in emergencies, but information from the company, Securita, Inc., says it has been enthusiastically adopted by military families, RV-ers, seniors, senior move managers, even the Red Cross — anyone who needs to keep their vital records in one compact, organized case. It measures 13-5/8 inches by 12-1/2 inches by 4 inches empty ($69.95). The PortaVault can be ordered at or by calling 888-279-1956 (toll free.)
