Aside from parties, new calendars and trying to remember to write the new year on your checks, what's the most common thing people do when a new year rolls around? Make resolutions, of course. It's also a good time to face up to the mess that is confronting you - cancelled checks, tax returns, credit card receipts, and what looks like enough paper and files to sink a large ship.
Take a positive step - improve your financial fitness. Whether you are a neatnik or a pack rat, a saver or a spender, set up a filing system for financial records so receipts can be saved in an orderly fashion this year and found easily next year.
Do you wonder which receipts and documents to keep and which to throw away? Check out the publication "Managing Family Records."
