5 thoughts on “Organizing Part Two: How Long To Keep Files”

  1. Seeing my moms business is a tax business I keep my files with her, so I probably have over 7 years LOL. She also suggest approx. 7 years to keep even when the IRS changes it.

    I have went paperless with most of my bills with trying to be greener but the ones I do get I keep until the next one arrives, then I shred.

    All my important papers I do have in a fireproof small safe!

    Great info brandy 🙂

  2. I do have fire proof box with birth certs, car title, ss cards. My mother is runs a tax business and keeps ours, so have probably more than 7 years kept. She suggests about the same as well to keep tax returns.

    My bills, I have converted most of them to paperless, simply because of trying to live greener. The ones I do have come in I keep until the next one arrives then I shred.

    Great information on how long to keep files.
