Bills, Bills, Bills

The organization spree continues!

Each weekend I'm taking on one area of the house to purge - and I'm finding myself running out of areas! This past Saturday I hunkered down in the guest bedroom/office to go through my file cabinet. Already fairly organized with file folders, I will admit I have taken to throwing unopened bank statement envelopes and out of order pay stubs in the drawer willy nilly over the past year.

Going through every piece of paper was tedious, but also a trip down memory lane. However, do I need to keep 15 copies of my 2004 fresh-out-of-college resume? No. Do I need a completely out of date contact list from my first days on the job back in '05? I don't think so. And so, the shred/toss pile grew. Some of these papers are as simple as the last page of my bank statement that doesn't contain any actual data, just legalese.
3 hours later, the file cabinet was back to organized and was a much lighter load. A few new folders were added including - most important - "Cats." I also realized that alot of my hard copies of statements for phone and bank end in 2009 - switched to almost all paperless in the last couple years!
Sonny definitely had fun messing up the pile of paper to shred or sitting on the exact folder I was working through at that moment. On a completely unrelated note, I'd like to share a photo of something else Sonny enjoys sitting on: his brother. . .poor Fredo!
