Having a good system in place shortens the road to any important goal. The peace of mind that comes with knowing where all your important records are located goes a long way toward lessening financial anxieties.
What most people fail to realize is just how much time is wasted when they do not have an orderly financial information system in place.
Instead, these folks are always searching for that lost receipt; never getting around to balancing their checkbook; or too often grumbling about why they don't have time to do what they know deep down they need to be doing to keep their financial lives in order.
