FEATURE UPDATE: In addition to our fancy new homepage, Shoeboxed has added a new feature that automatically categorizes your receipts into common tax categories. Based on a sophisticated algorithm that takes into account the receipt information, your receipts will be placed in default categories that are now in every Shoeboxed account.

Based on common tax categories, these default categories will come with every Shoeboxed account. This is a great time-saving feature, as you won’t have to spend as much time categorizing your own receipts. It’s just one way that Shoeboxed continues to make your life easier.

All your receipts in categories

So here’s how it works: When you email, upload, or mail your grocery store receipts to Shoeboxed, they will automatically be put in your new Food Category, and when you fill up at the pump, that receipt will automatically head to your Gas Category. Your old receipts will be directed toward appropriate default categories in addition to new ones you put in.

You’ll still have the ability to create and use your own custom categories, but we think these default categories will help you stay organized without having to spend as much time doing it yourself. Hooray technology!
