A: I love to give clients the OK to get rid of that box! The paperwork is best saved in a household file for future reference. I use clear string envelopes by category: kitchen appliances, sports gear, large electronics and small electronics, etc. These clear files can be stored in a bankers box in the basement or hall closet, or in a file drawer for handy reference.
