Lets face it, we're all going to run out of room at some point, I'm certainly in that category. I've got far too much paperwork
I have a whole cabinet full of old paperwork, such as:
- Monthly bank statements
- Credit card statements
- General correspondence with bank
- Car insurance paperwork
- Guarantees on electrical items
- Store receipts (things like iPhone, mountain bikes etc)
I'm thinking of scanning most of the above in, and then destroying the paper copies. I would probably keep receipts and have a 6 month cycle on bank statements
I'm also thinking to upload items to my Google Documents account, I'm quite fond of this service and not having to worry about backing up my own paperwork, but not sure its safe for financial documents, i.e. do they sniff around?
What do you do with your monthly statements? What are the best recommendations?
