In case you missed an earlier blog post, October is National Clean Out Your Files Month. (Yippeee!)

Whether you do that now or at any other time, papers containing personal information such as account, social security, and drivers license numbers should be shredded in order to protect yourself from identity theft. If you have a large stack of papers, consider taking them to a free shred day event.

For National Secure Your ID Day, the Better Business Bureau will be sponsoring free shred days across the nation in October.

Austin will have theirs on October 20 at Dell’s Round Rock Campus.

San Antonio will have theirs on October 20 at the AT&T Center.

If you’d like to prevent some of that paper from showing up in the first place, o-p-t out of as many mailings as possible.
