Putting all of my important documents and papers together was a big job (including one very long afternoon going back and forth to the Social Security offices) but my solution for protecting and keeping them in one place was easy. I chose an Ewa-Marine waterproof pouch, which claims to be waterproof up to 1000 feet deep. It is made of very heavy but flexible clear plastic. There are three knobs on top that you screw down to seal it tightly, making it impervious to water. The hassle of screwing and unscrewing the three knobs each time I need to retrieve a document or passport is a small price to pay. The pouches come in various sizes and are priced accordingly, mine cost $28. To see their selection click here.
