Everyone has their own New Year's tradition - sleep, food, football. Mine, although decidedly unglamorous and definitely not high on the excitement scale, leans toward the more tedious and necessary end of the scale, but often ends up being enjoyable. Every New Year's Day I clean out our records for the past year from our filing cabinet. Pay stubs, insurance statements and receipts, bills paid, contributions - they're all there waiting to be put in order and stored for the appropriate number of years until they can be shredded into oblivion. Storing another year's worth of records means it's time to shred a year. Those about-to-be-shredded documents are a trip down memory lane.
