Organizing Challenge Week 8! Organize your receipts.

Wow. I can't believe we're on to week 8. Even with skipping a week, we're still on week 8. Wow.

This week is organizing your receipts.
I like this week. because I pretty much have it under control.

I don't get receipts. For any personal purchases, I throw the receipt away. Most of the things I buy, let's be honest, are from Target. At Target you can use your credit card to look up any receipt. One less piece of paper in my wallet/purse/diaper bag. Boom. Same goes for Home Depot which is probably where the next most common place I buy things is.

I get my groceries delivered (I'm REALLY lazy). So my receipts for those are emailed to me.

Excellent. No receipts.

I do have one area where I need to keep receipts though. My BFF and I are in the process of starting our own business, we've organized, gotten our papers from the state, got our federal ID number, our social media accounts, and our website. (I'll be making an announcement here soon!) Because I'm making purchases for the business that are tax-deductible on our personal taxes, I need to save receipts for the good 'ole IRS. So I got a coupon organizer and just slip my receipts in there. It has 12 compartments so I can sort the receipts by month. I don't think I need to, I just can.

So that's my scientific system. What's yours?


  1. I generally don't get/keep receipts. The ones that I do need to hang on to go in files in my desk drawer.

  2. I like to shove my receipts into every random crevasse you can imagine in my home and car. Then every couple months I throw them away because, let's be real, I never needed to keep them in the first place!

    1. This is pretty much how I operate. God bless the soul who invented receipt look up.
