  • Remember your finances while spring cleaning

    Many people have an annual spring cleaning routine which includes washing windows, cabinets and woodwork. This year take time to also “clean-up” your financial records. Sort through your financial paperwork, and identify old statements which can be shredded or thrown away. Remember, it is always a good idea to shred any paperwork that contains personal information, especially bank account, credit card or other financial information.
