The start of 2016 is definitely in full swing and SPRING is finally in our reach. Thoughts of spring cleaning come into play, and not just in your closet.
We have boxes upon boxes of old records and files that need to be purged. Not something I long to do, for sure. It is pretty overwhelming actually. So, where do I start?
First, decide what type records need to be kept and what can be thrown away. By the way, you don’t want to throw them in the trash if they have any personal information. (See #2)
I have done some research on what I can get rid of, and thought I would share it with you. Click here to download and keep (on your computer to save space) for future reference.
Second, invest in a shredder if you don’t have one. They are not all that expensive and will keep any personal information out of the wrong hands.
Finally, if you can scan what you need to keep and store on a flash drive, just think of all the space you will save! Too bad we can’t do that in our closets. (*wink)
