About Us

EmergencyBinders.com exists to help families of all types effectively prepare for life's unexpected events.

Powered by Smart Money Mamas, which launched the Family Emergency Binder in 2018, EmergencyBinders.com was established in January 2022 as a hub to focus on emergency and estate planning content.

The Family Emergency Binder has been featured in Netflix's original series Dead to Me, Forbes, ChooseFI, White Coat Investor, Making Sense of Cents, and countless other outlets.

Why is Emergency Planning Important?

We all hope that nothing bad ever happens to us or our loved ones. No wildfires, hurricanes, or tornados. No car accidents or brain aneurysms. No global pandemics.

But sometimes, life happens.

And while these situations are always terrible, we've seen the additional immense strain that occurs when you're not organized. Loved ones are left scrambling to find documents, spending hours longer in court and thousands of dollars more in legal fees. Not to mention fielding endless phone calls.

As spouses and parents, we want to make sure our loved ones are organized and prepared to handle whatever comes with a step-by-step guide so that in any crisis - big or small - they can focus on what really matters.
