What were you thinking when you bought that electric nose clipper?! You decide to return it, but you can’t find that darn receipt anywhere! Maybe the clerk will remember you, but store policy won’t ever let him help you. There are a lot of situations where you need to keep receipts (for warranties, insurance, etc..), so here are some helpful hints.
- Keep all your receipts in one box, or one drawer. As soon as you get home, put your receipts in this place. Do this until it becomes a habit.
- Make it a habbit to stuff your receipts in your pocket; for me it’s the right pocket.. and at the end of the day make sure to empty your pockets, and put those receipts in a trusty place.
- Check your shopping bags before you toss them out… the clerks usually put the receipts in the bag.
- In a worse case scenario: try to remember the exact amount you paid for your item and the hour of the day you bought it… many stores can make a clone of your receipt based on exact information.
