Oftentimes we are so busy working and taking care of our families that we let the other things, like our financial statements, pile up around us. Have you ever ventured into the filing cabinet to be confronted with pay stubs from the 80’s? (And then did you stop to wonder how you survived on just $300 per month income? And enjoyed it?)
If so, it’s time to start to clean out your financial paperwork. Think of it as spring cleaning for financial statements. I stumbled across this article on CNN today and it offers five great strategies for getting your financial paperwork in order. This way, when you open that filing cabinet door you won’t be bombarded with a ton of other stuff that you should have thrown away a decade ago.
And while you are at it, why not clear out the old cards, ticket stubs, and product info for products that died long ago? Purge your paperwork and step into spring feeling twenty pounds lighter.
Happy Monday, Mommies!
