This link tells you just how long to keep those many, many bits of paper…makes interesting reading… but for speed, look beyond the video…go to the bottom of the page where you will find an informative list.
I’m a hoarder and hate throwing stuff out… but the paperwork is beginning to take-over… I shall read and re-read the Link and then throw out as much as I can bear to part with…
Thanks for posting this Stella. I’m in a similar position to you. My filing cabinet is bursting with papers. I’ve been in France nearly 11 years now and have kept every bit of paper for fear that I might need it one day. It’s good to know I can throw out some factures now.
I can see a clear out coming on.
