  • I keep the current year's bills in a small file box near my desk. Older stuff goes in a file cabinet in the garage. At least, that is my plan. I am still going through piles and piles of paperwork, trying to get rid of stuff that doesn't need to be saved. I am a bit of a packrat when it comes to saving records.

  • I keep the current year stuff by month in an accordian pocket folder. Then, after I do my taxes for the year, I put it all in a manilla envelope marked with the year. I keep it the required 7 years, then shred it.

  • Top of the microwave. LOL From there they get burned or trashed. Important stuff goes into a drawer.

  • Most of ours go into an accordion file. Some how everything we need ends up in the garbage 2 days before we need it.
    I finally told my husband that if he wants anything saved he has to file it away. He thinks leaving it on the counter is putting it away.

  • I don't file my bills at all. They are all e-mailed to me and paid online. If I needed to look up a past bill I could go online to do so. Taxes, medical documents, and other things I have a filing cabinet for.
