The Important Documents You Need to Keep:

  • Tax records and receipts (keep for seven years)
  • Pay stubs and bank statements (keep for a year)
  • Home purchase, sale, or improvement documents (keep for at least six years after you sell)
  • Medical records and bills (keep at least a year after payment in case of disputes)
  • Warranty documents and receipts (keep as long as you own them)

My grandma knitted, crocheted & sewed. She was quite gifted. I, however, didn't inherit that talent. Or, even more so, the determination, patience & inspiration.

I'd ask your bank about how long to keep statements.

Thought I'd mention that Knots of Love donates knitted caps/hats to cancer patients across the country, but I imagine you know about those types of organizations...

i keep everything for seven years but I have a feeling that Wiley in a most unlike Wiley act has shredded rather deeply from the files. Sigh

I have accumulated some clothing that I need to donate. We have a clothing donation box at one of our car washes, so I will put them there.

With regard to bank statements, I have heard one year. Asking your bank may be a better option to go with. I know my online statements are still available with my checking and savings. I opened that back in 2010.

Well I am always worried about how long to keep my tax returns. I never receive bank statements, but I think as a rule the banks keep a long record themselves. Depends, I would ask at your Bank.
