    I keep a rolling year of receipts in a pocket folder. By the time September rolls around, I’ll get rid of my receipts from September last year and start filling it with this year’s September receipts. This prevents too much receipt buildup. I’m working on getting my inbox that efficient.

    I’m working on getting things out of the house too. Just took a bunch of things to a consignment sale yesterday. Not as much fun as going shopping, but it does feel good.

    Good morning, Cathy clan!
    Wolf – I used to keep a lot of receipts also, but have been shredding them after a couple of months to make sure the credit card bill is correct and I don’t need to return it. Have you found that you’ve needed any receipts for any other reason? Just want to see if I should keep them longer. Thanks!

    If you work from home many of the expenses for maintaining the house are tax deductible. These receipts have to be kept for 7 years (here in Canada anyway). For everything else, as soon as the warranty on the product expires I shred the receipt – well, whenever I get around to doing it anyway.

    Thanks, hendelca! I don’t have a home business, so I think I’m okay. Other than the 7 year limit on tax documents (same in US), the only other thing I think I need to keep is investment statements (esp when they were bought and sold).
    How are you feeling these days, friend?

    From a physical standpoint? Fitting of a “Cathy” comic, let’s say. From a mental one? I can kinda relate to that thrill-of-the-moment excitement.

    HI, MOM. Hello, Clan.
