How long do you keep old utility bills? How about credit card statements and bank statements. Is there a website with this info. I have bills from 3years or more. I want to toss it all in the trash! My main weakness is paper clutter, I need to get a handle on it.
I keep old utility bills for one month. I don't keep credit card statements at all--I shred them immediately. Both my credit cards have all that info online. I do keep bank statements, but I'm thinking I don't need to do that, since I have been able to retrieve old info that I need faster online.
If you're going to toss the stuff, make sure you shred it well!
I keep my bills only until the next one comes. But I don't get but very few (I think 3 bills a month) anyway. We bank online and have most of our bills send there. I like that a lot since I get to pay my bills online without writing any checks. (We haven't used checks for about 6 years now)
