    How long should I keep bank statements, credit card bills for? 16th May 11 at 12:20 PM
    I am having a child free morning and trying to go through some paperwork. However, I am not sure how long I need to keep some paperwork for. I am a stay at home mum.

    How long should bank statements, credit card bills, Next directory accounts be kept for?

    Also being an internet shopper, do I need to keep the paperwork relating to my purchases, and if so for how long?

    Thank you for all advice.

    Edited to add: Utility bills, how long for those!
