Personal Records Management 101

Do you keep a lot of stuff at home because you're not sure if you can throw it out? Do you have piles of paper or folders of digital files of old phone bills, insurance policies, tax returns, bank statements, credit card offers, and other similar kinds of paper or digital material? If so, then this session is for you! Learn how knowing what you need to keep (and for how long) allows you to get rid of all the things you don't need to keep. That's the essence of personal records management. Free yourself from the clutter and inertia of feeling like you should keep everything (and know what you should be keeping). Bring in a few items and we'll talk you through guidelines to help you at home!
