A reason why you should save your paystubs.

Paycheck stub

Shred your paycheck stub

As a nineteen-year-old, I never understood why I needed to keep the stubs until I decided to move out of my parents’ house. I’ve been working at a local store for almost a year now, and I always shred my check stubs after reviewing them. As a neat freak, I always thought of them as unnecessary clutter.

But, there it was. The ‘proof of income’ request. I panicked and raced off to try and find at least one remaining paystub as proof, but without any hope. It was all gone. I didn’t know what to do then. Should I wait to receive a couple of paystubs and then move out? Should I change all my plans and postpone?

There was no chance that I could move, without proof of a stable income. The documents were needed. I asked a couple of older friends for their advice, and I was searching online for a solution.

It was all hopeless until I found the perfect online paycheck stub generator. It was perfect. All I had to do was to choose the required template and enter all the accurate details.

I was able to print several paystubs, and verify them from the store I’m working in to be able to buy an apartment and move it. It was a tough and hard time, but now I’ve learnt that I should keep several stubs for authentication and future ‘proof of income’. It was also a big relief to know that in case I needed any paystub in the future, I will always have an online source to print out my own!
