I am doing a major paperwork cleanup today and I pose the question – how long do you need to keep stuff like bank statements etc? I have heard 2 years, 7 years, 9 years. I have also heard that because these days everything is electronic anyway you don’t need to keep a thing.
How long do you keep your bills and statements and cancelled cheques?
…and in other news the kids cannot wait to come home today and start shredding the stuff that needs to be destroyed!!
