Like most SavvySugar readers, I take a receipt when it's offered to me. I figure if the cashier has already printed it, I might as well keep it. They stack up quick and for all my years of spending, I still haven't come up with an organized archiving system.
Logging receipts by category is an effective tool for better managing your budget, but it requires careful spreadsheet or envelope work. Help those of us who are drowning in paper by sharing how you organize your little spending records.
