    I love this! I’m in the process of organizing my paperwork and this is very helpful. I hesitate to go paperless. I feel that I can’t depend on having the internet because of the monthly cost. Prices go up on basic needs and the paycheck stays the same. At some point I have to make cut backs. It’s sad to see the stats of continuing to receive paper bills of how much damage to the environment it’s causing. Vicious cycle.

    This looks like a great plan. Both my husband and myself are getting older and I working on getting all our papers in order. I would like to print a copy of your plan and post it so I can follow it to get our papers in order. Thank you.

    If you can access statements online, should you still keep a copy (either paper or electronic copy)?

    It’s best to check with your accountant on what they want you to keep, but yes, you can usually get rid of items you have scanned in. Make sure to make a back up of any electronic data you have.

    Going paperless is a joke. The cost of ink for me to print documents I need is ridiculous. If you want to save trees and energy, pass legislation against unsolicited junk mail and stop credit card companies from sending all those extra pages of ads and balance transfer checks. The number of bills I receive in the mail is miniscule compared to the junk I have to pitch. The threat of identity theft is much greater from hackers getting into the merchants you frequent.
