Your PayPal statements. Your gas bills. Those boring five-page updates your brokerage firm sends out a million times a week.
You know you should be hanging on to this physical--or digital--paper trail, but... le ugh.
Now there’s a service that does it for you: FileThis.
All you have to do is securely link up your various accounts--anything from utilities to credit cards to insurance policies. From then on, every time you have a new statement or bill, FileThis will fetch it for you, upload it to a cloud-based storage system and (here’s the awesome part) file it by things like keyword, date and dollar amount.
If all goes according to plan, you can check your files very infrequently. But when you do need to consult that mortgage statement from 2013 (yay, refinancing!), it’ll be right there on the intuitive website, waiting for you.
Prefer to stash your stuff in a Dropbox or Google Docs account? FileThis can easily do that too.
A free membership gets you filing for up to six accounts, or you can pay $5 a month for more comprehensive coverage.
Don’t worry--you’ll find other uses for that fabulous vintage filing cabinet.
