Store Manuals and Receipts

I have stored receipts and manuals in a file cabinet drawer for many years. Binders are a good idea if you don't have a file drawer, but can find shelf space for them. A binder (or two) with pocket pages or page protectors can accommodate most manuals.


If your printer is also a scanner and copier, you can save copies of the receipts as Word or PDF docs, or just make paper copies to save in the binder or folder. Some manuals are even punched to fit a 3 ring binder, and some can be punched. Manuals that come as sheets folded like road maps can be partially unfolded and slipped into pockets or page protectors.

Dear Pixiedust (love the name,

I know you have a computer from your comments. Each day I purchase something and pay with my debit or a credit card I enter the receipt information into my computer, such as a Word program titled XYZ Bank. I always save that info to a flash drive which keeps my data off my computer hard drive. Purchases of devices you may wish to protect for warranty purposes can be noted. Or backed up with a paper trail. That takes all of about five minutes per day when I buy something.

I've no idea why more people don't do this?
