I used to keep everything however over the last couple of year and since just before the big move I’m not keeping as much. I’m not someone who was a hoarder next door but I like keeping paper items and file them away never to be seen again or rarely looked at.
Now I’m getting so much better obviously some paper items I enjoy keeping and some I’ll keep for a short period of time. However as wonderful as greetings cards are I now only choose to keep those cards that means a lot or special ones from family members.
Today I decided to organise a box of lawyers papers from the purcase of our current property and the property we purchased and then sold.
When we sold the house we previously owned selling was made a little easier by having our orginal purchase paperwork from the Lawyer. This paperwork and our new house paperwork has been sat in a brown storage box since we moved and I decided that as I’m in the process of organising our home office/ if need to be used as another guest room that I would go through all the paperwork and file into appropriate document wallets. I labeled all the files, including one for appliance information as the information was provided kindly by the previous owners.
Further to this organisation I did a lot of shredding of paperwork and receipts. I like to keep my receipts for a period of time depending on what they are for however I also shred those that become redundant for safety reasons.
Tomorrow my desk and chair from IKEA arrives for our home office which I’m excited about. The arrangement of furniture that I had initially had in the room didn’t work however now it’s beginning to look like a room I’d enjoy spending time in and much more practical and user friendly than before for my husband.
Happy Thursday Friends!
