The Bane of My Existence
Tuesday March 25, 2014see more by jen
They are the bane of my existence.
I am swimming in them and am drowning in a sea of crumpled little papers. My wallet, my purses, my car, my jewelry drawer, my junk drawer ~ they are everywhere and I am haunted by them. In my nightmares they grow legs and come running after me in a swarm. Kidding. But seriously, they drive me CRAZY.
So, this post is not a receipt organization tips post. I wish it was. This post is a mom-to-mom SOS post because that is what I desperately NEED from you – receipt organization tips.
Here is my problem, and I want to know how you handle it:
I am doing my shopping at warp speed. Either during the ridiculously short preschool time frame OR with kids that are not so thrilled to be shopping with me. Therefore, at check out I am usually in a rush and I take the receipt and stuff it in either my wallet or my purse.
The have it together mom would then, immediately upon returning home, take out the receipts, organize and file them in some civilized fashion. But I am not that mom.
But I know some of you are.
So, please share the secrets to your success at keeping receipts in an organized fashion?
What are your receipt organization tips?
How do you keep them organized?
I want to take all your tips, try them out, and then hopefully do another post with a real life receipt success story. Help a mama out?
