I went through my paper files last night, as I do at the end of every year. I looked at my pile of utility bills from the year and wondered if I needed to keep them. I hopped online and searched “how long does one need to keep utility bills.” I looked at a few sites, just to compare their answers. I trusted this CNN page more than the answer.coms and wiki sites.
Great, I could shred those utility bills! And wait, I guess I didn’t need my bank statements from 2006…and I could shred all of my credit card statements, too. My little baby shredder is going to be on fire today! I hope not literally; that dang thing gets hot.
Happy shredding! And a happy new year to all. I came across this site today and thought it would serve as a good resource for starting off a new year…
