I finally have a system that works
Finding a receipt has always been an impossibility for me. I'd keep them in boxes or ziploc bags but going through them all was just too much work.
I read about this is a magazine and implemented it on January 1, 2007. I purchased a file folder with 13 sections and labeled them according to store or category, whichever made the most sense. I keep all medical information in one of the folders and even stick the prescriptions to a piece of paper as I get them so that when I need to send in flexben, it's ready to go. Before it felt like such a chore to take forever to gather the information and prepare it to fax over.
There is something I need to return tomorrow when we go into town and I found the receipt instantly. This would always bring me so much stress and now I have a sense of relief and accomplishment.
