I store 90% of my shoes in the original boxes that they come in. I always put the sales receipt in with the shoes. If for some reason I need to return them or question how old my workout shoes are, I have the receipt right there. No digging through a mountain of other receipts looking for it. I also have done this with books that I purchase – especially cookbooks – I put the receipt in the back of the book. Sometimes I just want to know how long I have been using that cookbook.

We buy our medications from the same store we buy food. We are on a lot of medications and Dr recommended supplements. We save the receipts and the gas mileage counts towards our medical mileage deductible. Every little bit helps but it sure mounts up for us. Keep all of the receipts and circle the supplements on the grocery receipt.243
Not everyone can easily track their expenses, even with the help of technology. I keep a receipts organizer in my purse and separate my cash receipts from my debit card receipts
This has allowed me to really go through my expenses and track where the money is going. Not only that, but it keeps my purse nice and neat, instead of constantly looking through the purse, and wondering what the receipt is for. At the end of the day or the week, I gather these and track.
