As the end of the year approaches, think about getting your paperwork in order. File things that you need to keep that are scattered around on kitchen counters, the desk or other surfaces they don't belong. Ditch what you no longer need, shredding those items with personal information. Review medical bills from throughout the year and decide if you are eligible to deduct these off your taxes if they add up significantly. Otherwise, purge through and get rid of those you no longer need. Get charitable receipts organized so you are ready for taxes in the new year. Do you really need your January electric bill? What about the cell phone bill from Feb that is still floating around? Remember, many bills or statements can be easily replaced by going online should the need for them ever arise. Commit to getting those files ready for use in 2016!
