How often to you shovel paperwork?

I want to shred everything. I can't win the incoming paper game even with school being out!

  • As soon as something comes in to the house I take care of it. Junk mail is either immediately tossed or shredded. Bills are shredded as soon as they are paid. I don't allow the paper work to pile up. We homeschool, now so I don't have to deal with THAT paper work. However I would throw papers away as soon as they came in or tacked them on the bulletin board if it was something that had to be saved and as soon as it was done I threw it out!

  • I shred anything that has information on it that would help someone with identity theft. I save paid bills, though, about a year and then shred them all at once. I shred unwanted but sensitive papers ( those checks that keep coming from the credit card companies, for example) as soon as they come in.
