Happy first day of Spring! Is Spring cleaning an annual tradition in your household? If so, make sure that sorting through your financial documents is on your to-do list.

Throughout the year, you’ll likely receive dozens if not hundreds of pages of financial documents: bills, receipts, tax information, product warranties, bank and investment statements, etc. It can be a hassle to keep track of all the information. This might not seem like a problem now but if you ever need to access the information at a moment’s notice, rifling through the disorder can be a real pain. Additionally, you want to make sure that any items with personal and financial information is properly disposed of.

Mint has an infographic to guide you through a Spring cleaning of your financial documents. Of course, you don’t have to do this in the Spring: Summer, Fall, and Winter are perfectly fine seasons to review your financial documents. It doesn’t matter when you sit down and organize your finances — just be sure to do so at least once a year.
