I’ve been diligently saving bank (and other account) statements for probably over 3 years now, you know, just in case.
It’s come time to let go though. I just confirmed with my bank that, should that unlikely emergency event come where I need to check something, my records will still be obtainable, even if for a few bucks.
So I’ll keep about a year’s worth, and destroy the rest. But I don’t have a shredder. My dad does, but still, it’s a lot of paper, and I believe his shredder couldn’t handle too many pages at a time. (I could be wrong about that).
Does anyone have any suggestions for alternatives. Burning seems much more difficult than it’d be worth. Unless I had a charcoal grill or something like that, I’d probably have to dig a hole.
Maybe there’s an incinerator somewhere open to the public? Or a mass shredder?
