|Do you see the blue box back there? Really it is there.|
|Look. Organized clutter!!|
At this point I joked with my daughter that all the shredded checks and registers took up more space now. There was no way I could get it all back into the little box! I'm sending the cute little box to Goodwill, as I don't know of a need for it now. Someone who is in the collecting stage of their life might like it.
After the check and register purge, I felt really grateful that banks don't return checks any longer!! I may never have a large pile of checks to shred again. I now record all of our checking account transactions on an Excel sheet, so no paper registers will likely accumulate in physical form again either. Amazing!
Do you know what is lurking in the back of your file cabinet? Have you discovered anything pushed back that was nearly invisible? Do you have any cancelled checks or registers in your home? Or am I the last one?
