Over the weekend, not only did I prepare and e-file my taxes, I also started a massive clean out project of all of the paper clutter that has been living in my apartment (and the apartments before this one!).
I used to be a meticulous receipt saver and organizer. Matching them up with my bank statements and filing them away in envelopes by year. But let’s be honest, I don’t have time (or the need) for that anymore. Instead, I’ve realized that less is more, and I’ve started scanning the important receipts (for major purchases or anything I would list on my renter’s insurance) and documents and shredding the rest. I’m probably an over-shredder, but there’s something so satisfying about that little machine.
I want to know how you organize your receipts? Do you even save them? POPSUGAR Living has some great tips on how to organize all those little slips. I especially like the idea of requesting e-mail receipts.
