Which receipts do you keep?
I have saved every single credit card receipt over the years, but I don't want to keep them all. After comparing the receipts with the monthly statement, which can I safely throw out and never miss?
Perhaps some of you might be rolling your eyes. ;-P Well if it's such a no-brainer for you, please clue me in. If you have a set of criteria that tells you whether to keep or toss a given receipt, please enlighten me.
And then, where do you keep those receipts? I figure, you'd keep the receipt from a major appliance in the folder with the user manual and warranty. I have done at least that much. Oh, and I keep track of the medical expenses for the flexible spending for health insurance.
But there is a vast, gray area between the receipts that I'm sure I won't need again (groceries) and those I'm sure I'll need again (durable goods).
What major categories of receipts do you save, and where/how do you save them, in case you need to look up a particular receipt in the future?
