I have two big garbage bags (we have to use clear bags in Dufferin County) so far of shredded paper. I have gone through the personal tax files, that more or less accounts for the bag in the front.
We have bought two new homes in the past directly from builders. I had forgotten how much paperwork that accumulates. Found it interesting the faxes that were sent back and forth concerning problems. Then of course the paid bill drawer, got six months worth of paid bills shredded.
The four big files on the coffee table have to do with insurance and mutual funds. I am going to get dh to sort those out, as I am lost with them. Plus if it were up to me I would shred most of them!!! We had a plastic filing box similar to this one:
We used it for receipts and warranties. It wasn't very full and when I cleaned it out, it had only a few things in it, so gave it to ds and I will put the receipts and warranties from there into our filing cabinet. I can safely say I have gotten rid of 25 things from the house this week!!
It is also my brother Nicks birthday today. He has a blog here if you want to pop by and wish him Happy Birthday. While you're there tell him to pull his finger out and start posting a bit more on his blog!!! I'll let him tell you how old he is; but here's a hint it's closer to 50 than 40!!!
Happy Birthday Nick and sorry about not mailing you a card!!!! I am putting it down to my age and getting more senile!!!
