But where do you keep your marriage license?

When I was first married we took it with us on trips because some motels wouldn't rent you a room together without proof. Today I have no idea where it is.

shred most bills as soon as they are paid. Anything personal gets the shreder as well.

receipts I just keep in a file for a while.

Pretty much like g-man's, except we don't hold those bank things as long (unless they're tax-deductable, mortgage, or townhouse-related).
