Unless you deduct home business expenses, throw out old phone bills, old utility bills and supermarket receipts.
Save store receipts, credit card statements and canceled checks for at least one year.
Digitize all of this every 6 months and INCRIMENTALY save it , compressed and encripted, in a web mail account
Save credit card agreements, loan agreements, warranties and home-improvement receipts for at least three years.
In a fire safety box store birth certificates, death certificates, marriage license,
immunization records, passports,
divorce decrees and settlement agreements, wills,
life-insurance policies and copies of your bank account numbers.
EVERY FILED ITEM SHOULD BE DATED, ideally with a "DISPOSE ON:" label, so that cleaning out old junk is easy and quick.
