One of the biggest benefits of organizing your receipts is for reimbursement purposes. Everybody has been reimbursed at some time or another, and everybody knows the rule: you’ve got to have your receipt. Despite this, it can be a pain to keep track of everything you bought. Most of us have had to “eat” an expense that should have been paid for by someone else because we couldn’t find the receipt for it.
So how can Shoeboxed help? Well, first off, everything that you buy online will be in an easy-to-read, tabular format. And they’re not going anywhere either. You will always have easy access to everything you’ve bought online.
Also, you can easily forward any of your receipts to anyone at any time. Need to send a receipt to your boss for that fax machine you ordered for the office? No problem. Just click on the receipt from the My Receipts page. Then click “Forward this receipt.” Enter your boss’ e-mail address, and you’re done. Expect your check in the mail in 4-6 weeks.
Save money, save time, save frustration, get on Shoeboxed.

This morning, two bloggers from rebell.tv visited the Shoeboxed team to document the life of an American startup in Berlin. Armed with their video camera and camera phone, they talked briefly with Taylor about his decision to start shoeboxed.com and to move the whole team to Berlin for the summer. The video will be featured on rocketboom.com August 3rd. In the meantime, they’ve posted a photo from their visit on the rebell.tv blog. Click here to check it out!
Shoeboxed.com has launched! It’s a great day for everyone on the Shoeboxed team, and for everyone who is ready to make their life easier.
From day one we’ve said, “there’s a better way”, and today you will have the chance to experience it. Nobody likes to spend countless hours organizing their financial information. It’s about time somebody made it really simple. Nobody likes getting hundreds of unwanted spam e-mails in their personal inboxes. It’s about time somebody gave you the power to get rid of them. Nobody likes to give out their credit card or Social Security numbers. It’s about time you were able to track your purchases and receipts without releasing your sensitive information. Nobody likes an overwhelming amount of communication from businesses in their personal e-mail inbox. Shoeboxed is a secure, free, and fun solution to all these problems.
It’s not everyday that I have the privilege to write on the Shoeboxed blog. But at Shoeboxed it’s about the team, and I’m proud that we have such a great lineup of talented and dedicated individuals who will do anything and everything for Shoeboxed. After all, it takes a unique group of twelve students to survive working and living out of a small apartment in West Berlin.
So today I want to personally invite everyone to see what the Shoeboxed team has been able to accomplish. It’s new, it’s different, and it has the potential to change the way you live your life. I also want to invite everyone to keep reading the blog, which will continue to give informative, relevant, and entertaining updates as time goes on.
We are hard at work making sure the site runs as smoothly as possible. If you have any suggestions, we would greatly appreciate feedback. You can contact the whole team at help (at) team (dot) shoeboxed (dot) com or me personally at taylor (at) team (dot) shoeboxed (dot) com.
Take a look, let us know what you think, and stay tuned for what is to come. After all, this is just the first phase for shoeboxed.com.
