PEI's Guide to Paper Retention™

What to Toss & How to Find the Rest

In my book, Organizing Paper @Home What to Toss and How to Find the Rest, I wrote about different kinds of paper that you need to keep—or might want to keep.

To determine what information you should keep, simply practice The Art of Wastebasketry®, by asking yourself the following questions about each document or type of information:

  • Does this require action?
  • Is it recent enough to be useful?
  • Is it difficult to obtain again?
  • Are there tax or legal implications?
  • Can you identify a specific use for it?
  • What’s the worst thing that could happen if it was tossed?

Toss what you can…and use this Guide as a simple way to find the rest!
