Step 1

The most common way is the storage of a sales document, for example, in a shoe box or other clothing. This is the easiest way to keep your receipts safe for all purchases. The only drawback is that in such a box everything will lie in a pile of papers.

Step 2

Demanding men and women paste the product line into a financial notebook. It can be made from a regular school one - just indicate the dates and purpose of the purchase. With this storage method, everything will be arranged perfectly and in order.

Step 3

Receipts for important purchases, such as televisions or washing machines, can be attached to the instructions for use of the appliance. And for example, when buying shoes, put in the original box.

Step 5

Many people resort to a method of storing all sales receipts in a cardcase, or, more simply, a business card holder. Due to the large number of transparent compartments, a fairly large number of sales sheets can be placed there. And you can audit it once a month and free cells from unnecessary pieces of paper.

When the seller gives you change, he puts the sales receipt on it, which, by inertia, you put away in your purse, wallet or pocket bag. The only drawback is that many checks will not be saved this way.
