Receipt Management

If you shop online, you know that soon after you click “Place Order,” you receive an electronic receipt by email.

What do you do with these receipts?

My suggestion: create an email folder called “Receipts,” and drag your electronic receipts from your “Inbox” to your “Receipts” folder.

By storing receipts in their own folder, you can find them easily. When you leave them in your “Inbox,” they get buried under new email and you may have trouble finding them even a few days later.

  • When your package arrives, check your electronic receipt to be sure you got what you ordered.
  • If the order does not arrive as anticipated, call the store, and refer to the order number on the receipt.
  • Even after the package arrives and the order is complete, compare your receipt to your credit card bill.
  • Once the bill is paid, delete the email receipt or, perhaps, move it into a different folder labeled “Paid Receipts.”

Happy shopping!
