It is getting to be that time of the year — tax deadlines!! April 15th is just a few weeks away. As you finalize your taxes (if you haven’t already done so), you may find that you have documents you no longer need. They may be items you saved this year and find you did not need to keep or they may be prior year’s tax returns or even old medical receipts.
No matter what documents you have that you do not need, it is important that you shred them. In this day of identity theft, you just can’t toss them into the trash anymore. It is sad – but true. So, you can purchase a shredder and spend time shredding them yourself. Or, you can get it done — for free!
Now through April 25th, you can get up to 2 pounds of documents shredded for free at your local Office Depot/Office Max! Just take along THIS coupon to get in on this great freebie!
If you aren’t sure what you can actually get rid of, you can review our post about How Long to Keep Your Documents — and ideas on how to store them!
