    How long do you keep things for? I am (for the first time in 3 years!) having a massive tidy out in the flat. At the moment, it looks like a bomb has exploded in the living room and desperate to chuck out/shred as much as possible.

    Bills usually disposed of once paid.
    Bank statements - shredded en masse every so often - when we move for example, but i always keep 6 months worth
    payslips like bank statements
    Other paper work - when I have the time and inclination!

  5. Pretty much got all of the above for the past 20 years. All filed- might get round to having a clearout in the summer...
     
  6. Oh my word. I've still got payslips from jobs I left years ago, you know just in case.
    Every bill and bank statement, handbooks for dvd, video iuncluding the Betamax, perhaps a clear out is in order.

    Well I didn't even get round to the paperwork, having distracted myself with listing about a million items on ebay!
    Love a good old clear out.
    Paperwork tomorrow.
    I promise!

    ATL advise you to keep all payslips in case of pension issues!

    I was going to post that I've kept all my payslips since I've started teaching as it's the only thing that shows how much I've paid in the pension scheme. Don't like the estimate thing we get once a year.
