Getting organised

Don’t you just hate it, when you’re emptying receipts out of your bag/jeans/car and not knowing what to do with them?

I don’t know how it happens, but every time I empty my bag, there’s always a stash of receipts …and I don’t know what to do with them!!!!

Actually I think I know how these things happen, EVERY time I make a purchase, they’ll ask, “would you like a receipt?” and I will ALWAYS say yes, just in case I need a time stamp to evidence my alibi for a crime that I didn’t commit…

…or be convinced that I’ll look back and regret, for whatever reason, I didn’t keep that receipts.

I had been flirting with various ideas for a system of filing my receipt, but it always seemed like too much work.

Alas, I still end up throwing them out.

One fateful day, having too much time on my hands waiting for my plane at the airport, I stumbled upon the solution to my problem. I was lured in by the red sales sign at Kikki.K that led me to the purchase of this (of which I have now…misplaced >.<):

Kikki K – Receipt Book

Costed about $18 Singapore dollars (would’ve been AUD $14.95, had I’d waited to buy it in Oz).
It contains 12 individual envelopes with lines and headings to allow for details of dates, amounts and description of receipts.

Then I found this at Typo (turns out, they’re owned by Cotton On):

Typo Receipt Book

Not as neat and only 10 envelopes, but half the price, selling for AUD $7.95 AND THEN IT WAS ON SALE FOR AUD $4.OO…so I bought two!

Upon search on the Typo websites, it looks like the receipt books that I had purchased has been replaced by these:

Typo – Clutch File

Available in these designs…

Look’s quite nifty (for AUD $9.95)…but not as handy if I wanted to retrieve receipts since there’s not space for notes.

Alternatively, the internet has found me these:

Ms Money – Spending Diary

but they are by far, the most chic and expensive(…AUD $24.95…) among it’s peers…and a little rich for my blood…
