OK, there is an exception to every rule, and the exception here is I keep some payroll posting reports and bank reconciliation posting reports and NOTHING ELSE, not even year ending closing reports.
Why? Because I can reprint any of them at any time. Why waste paper and trees? Why pay rent for extra space to store filing cabinets (that I’d have to buy) to store paper with toner (that I also have to buy) for reports that I’ll never need and if I do I’d probably just reprint them anyway! Not to mention, I do not have time to file them! Look at your desk, I bet you have a stack of posting reports sitting there waiting to be filed.
Save a tree, save money, save time, save your sanity…. Consider turning off your posting reports!
