There are a fair number of websites out there that want to let you know how you can organize your paper. A lot of times, I can’t help but chuckle a little bit. They’ll give you great ways to set up folders and labels and a schedule whereby you’ll spend hours and hours a month stuffing paper into nicely labeled drawers. Come on people, there’s a better way!
The old way:
Use complicated filing systems with pre-determined categories and subcategories to decide where to file a single receipt.
The Shoeboxed way:
Instead of folders, we use “shoeboxes” to give you the same managability, but with more flexibility. In Shoeboxed, a single receipt can be in several shoeboxes, so you’re not forced to pick one specific category for each receipt. That way, if a receipt falls under more than one category, you can find it in any shoebox that you’ve added it to.
Shoeboxes give you an extra bonus too — put your receipts to work! You can view graphs of relevant spending trends at the bottom of each shoebox. Use them to understand and analyze your spending behavior!
It’s easy to create, edit or delete Shoeboxes, and you don’t have to worry about deleting receipts, when deleting Shoeboxes. To start organizing right away, click on the following link:
