I still have all of my immigration related documents dating back about 15 years. I suppose I could do some purging or perhaps scan it all to some PDF files. I think keeping the documentation in some form indefinitely is a good idea.

I see you already had your oath ceremony and your now a US citizen.

I am not an expert, but I cannot see any reason to keep copies of the paperwork that you previously submitted to USCIS (to include a copy of the N-400) ... And those letters you received previously telling of your case acceptance, bio date, oath date, and such serve no purpose anymore either.

Hey, you a US citizen now!

The only piece of paper I would keep forever in a safe place is your official Certificate of Naturalization.

Naturalization (3-year marriage rule)

I'd delete/trash everything and do a FOIA request. That way, all your immigration records will be mailed to you in form of a CD. You can just keep that as a record of your immigration journey.
