1. The number for the do not call center. Been losing my patience on this. It is 888-382-1222 or go to the website http://www.donotcall.gov. Just did that and bingo, done.
2. A list of places that deliver food, most I knew about, one was new. Mom’s Meals solves a lot of problems; it packs its meals so they last in the fridge and they cost just $5.99 (a dollar more to get the snack). I have no idea if they are any good, but I have some friends who could use this as a temporary solution to a long term need.
3. The Document Retention chart or how long you keep paper work. I didn’t realize you are supposed to keep the opening statement of bank accounts as long as you open the account. Here is the link to that chart.
I’m a bad example for most of this. Canceled check retention is supposedly seven years. My stash is at least 47 years old. Sometime, I promise myself, I’ll take a trip down memory lane and look at the names.
What I really need is to find the newsletter issue that talks about hoarding!
