I have a lot of pet peeves.
One of my biggest pet peeves: Banks and businesses that send you junk mail.
Whenever I go to my mailbox and it’s filled with promotional material, I just want to send the mail right back to them. In fact, I switched my car insurance a while ago because they just wouldn’t stop sending me mail three times a week! Ridiculous.
It’s especially ridiculous when it comes to banks. And with all the documents you get from them, it’s hard to know what to throw away and what to keep.
That’s why I want to go into what documents you should be holding onto and for how long.
How long to keep documents
Here are my frameworks for how long you should hold onto certain documents, and more importantly, why you should hold onto them.
Later, I’ll go into good ways you can keep them safe.
