spring cleaning-what to keep and what to get rid of . .

okay, this has nothing to do w/ health/exercise etc but . . . i have a filing system that has gone completely nuts-bank statements, credit card statements, old car insurance statements, paycheck stubbs, old check books, etc. i know i should probably keep my paystubbs and bank account stuff for tax purposes . . .but what about all the other stuff? Do i really need to keep old credit card statements etc? (i have some from accounts i don't even have opened anymore!) I'm curious to see what you guys keep and what you shred!

I am the wrong person to comment.
I am a total packrat...

I try to keep the statements-- I think someone once mentioned that you need to keep statements for 7 years or something like that.
I just shred the receipts (unless it's for something major like an appliance or computer, etc.) and then keep only the statements.

Eventually, I shred that as well...

Unfortunately, I don't have my stuff filed, and everything is a mess as well... :-(
