So Many Receipts!

May 2005 was almost 6 years ago. It's also the date of the oldest receipt I found in my little receipts box. Yup, I am *that* rubbish on keeping on top of this. Paperwork again! YAK!

So I tipped them all our into a big pile on the floor.

Put the ones I wanted to keep back into the box.

And the rest were burned in my parent's fireplace.

Ahhhhhh... My mind feels a fraction lighter now. There's no way I needed that 4-year-old receipt for a bra and that one from last week for the doorstop. No way!

Stay tuned for my plan on how to keep up with all this organising fun. I figured I need a way to make sure I stay on top of these systems and things, otherwise things could easily slip again. I need to keep reassessing what's working and what isn't. It's okay though. Like I said, I have a cunning plan. :o)


  1. Oh, I have issues with paper clutter. I'm hoping to get myself under control this year too, especially when it comes to receipts.
    Good job!!

    Thanks for coming by my site. I'm spring cleaning/de-cluttering one room at a time and my bedroom was the first thing I conquered (though not the walk in closet yet...)

  2. I love that you had a recepit from woolworths!!!

  3. Jenn, i loved your blog! I'll definitely keep checking back.

    Buggles, i aaaaalmost kept the Woolies receipt. In case it might be worth something in a few years. Ha ha! It's so hard to fight the hoarder in me!
