What to do in preparation for a job loss?

I'm quite certain I won't have a job in January. They're looking at cutbacks overall and I know I can be replaced with someone cheaper. Through the grapevine I've heard they're interviewing people. I'm not too upset, I'm ready to move on. I'm also not too concerned about finding a new position. I figured this was coming and I'll be good for 6 months even without employment insurance. What to do to prepare? I've copied my Outlook contacts and emailed them home, I've taken home all copies of company guidelines (to see severance policies). Next I'm off to the doctor to get several months worth of my prescription. Anything else you guys can think of? What would you do if you knew you're job was on the chopping block and you weren't going to fight to keep it?
