So sitting in a shoebox sized box next to my desk are all my receipts over the past few months. I usually shred them, but that takes way too long although my dog loves chasing each set of papers I send through the shredder…Trying to rip a piece of the paper before it makes it in is like a game for him. I tried making a fire, but that’s just too much of a mess and takes too long. Maybe I should just put all my receipts in Brownie’s crate so he can rip them apart. Haha…That’s an idea I never thought of. Seriously, what to do? I’m debating just tossing them in the trash. I mean they only have the last 4 digits of my credit card number now.
For expensive purchases, I’ve been scanning receipts and storing them on my computer. So much less clutter…well I still end up keeping the paper receipts lol. I guess my thinking is that since I’m so disorganized, the chances of finding my receipts are greater by having them in two locations.
What do you do with your old receipts? How long do you keep them?
