Planning matters

To Shred or Not to Shred, that is the Question.

One of the most common questions our clients ask is how long and where to keep important financial documents. It’s a great question, and once you’re organized, you’ll be prepared the next time you need to find a specific record.

How Long Do I Keep That? Is our simple guide to help you make decisions, organize, and secure your financial paperwork.

In the mood for spring cleaning?

If the organizing process leaves you with a lot of documents that need shredding before they’re recycled, bring them to our Shred Day event in March.

Details below:
