October Habit #12 I Needed Someone To Tell Me

Dear FlyLady,

Thanks to you I just threw out 10-15 year old bills that I have been keeping just because it feels wrong to throw them away. They seem so official. It feels like they should be saved.

I have decided to make a binder with 12 tabs, one for each month, to put all my payed paper bills in. Then when a month rolls around again after a year, I will throw out last year’s bills and put the new ones in. That way I will only have a year’s worth of bills at any time, which should suffice for most things.

I would not have started with this without your inspiration and motivation. It seems like a simple thing, but I needed someone to tell me to just get it done and to start letting go of things to become free. Thank you so much!

Sofia from Sweden
