We all have to hold onto receipts for whatever reason. Maybe you made a big purchase and want to hold onto it to back up your warranty. Maybe you’re giving a gift and want to be on the safe side. Maybe they’re for tax purposes to document business expenses. Perhaps you’re planning to get reimbursed from work. Whatever your reasons, those receipts can quickly turn into a big pile — and make a big, unorganized mess. Here’s how to organize all those receipts you need to hold onto.

For clothing you just bought, have the casher put the receipt in the bag. Then when you go home and hang that shirt or dress, immediately tape or staple the receipt onto the tag. If you don’t end up loving the item and want to return it, the receipt will be right there, ready to go.
