Believe it or not, we don’t like receipts very much. We think they’re annoying, a waste, and difficult to keep track of. Our greatest motivation in developing Shoeboxed is to make it easier for people to organize and manage receipts, because after all, they contain lots of information worth keeping around.
I came across a website the other day that made a strong case for the existence of a site such as Shoeboxed. Mark A. Thomas of New York has decided to put most of his receipts from the past few years on the Internet. The site allows any visitor to access Thomas’ receipts in high quality resolution.
Although the idea of saving receipts online, as Thomas has, may seem appealing because it frees up your filing cabinets (or actual shoeboxes) and other storage space at home, the security and organization are lacking with Thomas’ method. With Shoeboxed, Thomas would be able to establish different Shoeboxes to better organize his receipts, thus making it easier to track down travel receipts from food purchases, for example. At the same time, with a personal and secure account, Thomas would not have to put all his receipts on display to everyone. With Shoeboxed you now have the option to keep your receipts online like Mr. Thomas wanted to in a secure and organized manner. Let’s also not forget that putting your paper receipts online allows you to recycle your receipts, an extra plus and step towards keeping a sustainable society model.
