... hang on to financial statements? I've been cleaning out our desk drawers and I've saved so much!  How long should I hold on to things like bank statements, credit card statements, etc?  When is it safe to toss (aka shred) them?

Hi Jan,

I did a google search and found a pretty good document that tells you how long to keep different types of records.  Here's the link.  I hope it helps!
