How do you handle paperwork?

Modern life brings with itself a flood of bills and letters and forms sent to us by utilities, banks, the government, etc. Some of them can be thrown away, others should really be shredded to prevent identity theft, yet others need to be retained for months and years. What do you do with yours? Do you have a filing system? Do you have a box or corner or bottomless pit you put all your paperwork into? Do you deal with it in batches or as soon as it arrives?

Moving house and moving in with daisyk has made us both realise that we need a better way of dealing with our paperwork. Because we're geeks, our solution will be a computer program. But to inform its design, I'd very much like to know your approach to paperwork, and how well it works for you.
