We have a small metal file box, (but one could use an accordion file) where we file the warranty papers. I staple the original receipt in the front of the warranty book. If there is any question, we have the date of purchase, etc. all together.

Since most receipts are printed on thermal paper (and the ink will dissipate over time), we scan our important receipts into the computer and save it as a .pdf document right away. Then, if we need to use the warranty, we can produce a legible copy along with the original receipt that was stapled into the owner's manual. 88
Where to find the Warrenty Paper Purchase Receipts
Now a days you get a receipt that has the warranty right on it. I found a way not to lose those. I use one of those clear plastic baseball card holders and in each spot for a card is a receipt of an item. I use labels to note what the receipt is for, then put it in a manilla folder marked Warrenty
I also have a separate drawer that I keep all warranty files in plus all the papers that come with purchases. I place the paperwork in clear full size plastic holders and mark what the product is on the front then organize them in alphabetical order I always know where to find the manual to my items
Keep your receipt with the book for major appliances
I have in the past 3 years used more product Warranty's than ever before. In the case of my dishwasher I was able, by having my receipt handy, to show the authorized repair man the date that I had purchased the machine. The new motor it needed was covered and we just paid labor costs.
A savings of Hundreds of dollars. This also happened with our Recumbent Bike. I try to buy good quality things but sometimes they break. I now make sure to fill out the warranty card. I didn't for the bike but they let me do it after it broke by sending a copy of my receipt. Keep them handy.
