Organizing your financial papers is the first step to managing money wisely. John Wesley's famous quote, "Earn all you can, save all you can, and give all you can," is easier to do when your financial papers are in order. Start by sorting your papers into three categories: those to be shredded, those to be kept for seven years, and those to be kept forever. After organizing your papers, consider your emergency fund, tax withholdings, estate planning, insurance policies, and subscriptions. With the right steps, you can get your finances in order and make the most of your money.
