Hi ladies!  

Thank you for all your comments, it’s so much fun when it becomes a dialog. Please keep them coming!  

Ok, now back to the series, and the third misconception: the fear of throwing away the wrong thing:

Believe it or not, this is something I hear quite often. This fear of throwing away an important document stops many people from throwing away almost any document.  

There was a time when this was a legitimate fear. If you threw away the deed to your house, there was almost no way to get a copy again. However, today, this is no longer true.  

With the advent of the computer and the internet, almost any document you may have is either re-findable (see misconception #1 ), has a backup in one of your vendors offices (such as your tax return at your accountant's office, or your closing documents with your lawyer), and very few and far between are the documents that are truly difficult to replace.  

The easiest way to make sure to avoid this pitfall is to call your lawyer, your accountant, your financial adviser, and ask them what papers you need to keep, and for how long – or take advantage of the guidelines given to you in the [Link Removed] .  

As for the memorabilia, such as greeting cards, tickets to beloved events, etc., choose those that make you happy just looking at them. Anything that doesn’t have great memories attached to it, you can probably safely toss.  

Now you can throw papers away with a light heart, knowing that you‘re not throwing away some impossible-to-recover treasure or important paper.  

Next installment: I don’t have the time to get organized... It’s one I absolutely LOVE to hear - and to debunk! happy
