I have to shred leftover papers and copies no longer needed that have personal information on, and because we are a company I am very careful with employee's information also. Remember to shred or destroy somehow credit card offers that come and other things that have personal numbers, etc. on them.
I think the best tip I have is to go through your mail daily. I put magazines in one place to read, throw away or recycle ads, put bills in their place, etc. It only takes a minute or two every day and makes such a difference. If you don't have a specific place to put your bills to pay, designate a place. I don't understand people who pile their mail up without reading/sorting. Things get so behind and/or lost!
Harriet, I love the picture!
