Keeping Paperwork

So with the whole cc receipt thread…I just got to thinking do I really need to keep all this paperwork?

So my question is what kind of paperwork do you all keep? Granted we are a place who is still using ticket books with daily audits and checks and balances. So in doing that we have lots of paperwork. We keep a daily binder and then I record it into quickbooks file everything and keep it for 7 years.

Until yesterday, I didn’t really even think about it but my house is filled with paperwork crap for work. What do I really need to keep?

I have one 4 drawer filing cabinet with just employee files past and present. 4 other filing cabinets and then loads of plastic tubs in the garage. Ughhh

I just might be in the mood to purge…but what do I purge?
