I emptied out the last file cabinet drawer of mine left in Lakewood. Turned out is contained mostly very old checking statements (from the 90s!) and correspondence from my kids’ schools. So this was an easy drawer to deal with, except for tearing up all the old checking information, since we don’t have a shredder.
Now, all I have to get this goal done is to sort out one and a half moving boxes of paper already in Reno. I’m pretty sure these boxes contain a lot of obsolete stuff too, it’s just a question of getting myself psyched up to tackle the challenge.
needing to be sorted out. I found another box of paper that’s been sitting there for over a year! My goal is to go through it this week. If I haven’t missed it in a year, it should be pretty easy, right?
Our credit union had a shredding company come to the bank today, and we dropped off quite a bit of paper to be shredded.
Progress on this goal is slow, but it’s good to get rid of the out-dated paper!
The file cabinet is in Reno, but I have a bunch of un-filed paper still at the old house. I’m trying to sort through it, so I don’t move more stuff that I just end up throwing away.
I’ve made my way through the half-box, so I have just two moving boxes left to go!
I’ve moved most of my files now, but didn’t get a chance to purge the outdated stuff in them before I moved. I’ve already gone through some of them so far, but I have two and a half moving boxes left to sort through. Whew! It’s a lot, but needs to be done before we can move on with our tax preparation.
I’m resolved to go through the files before just sticking them back in my file cabinet. I think when I’m done, I’ll actually have extra room left in the file cabinet.
