Receipts – sometimes you have to hang on to them, but they sure do make a mess. Piling up on your desk, at the bottom of your purse, on the kitchen counter. Giving you something else to sort through and keep track of. Giving you more clutter to conquer.
If you’re fighting the same battle in your home, I’m happy to report that I finally found a solution. And it’s a simple one.
I just stuck a large jar on my desk, gave it a nice label, and now we have a place to drop our receipts as they come into the house.
Business receipts are our biggest source of clutter, so the jar on my desk is set up to hold those, but I plan to make another one for household receipts.
I may even make one to hold our cabin reno receipts. Anything to put an end to the receipt pile up.
If you’d like to set up your own receipt jar (or jars), you’re welcome to use my labels to do it.
The category and date fields are both editable, so you can customize them to your needs, and print new labels each year.
Want to use a different font? Just hit “Ctrl” + “E.” to bring up a menu of options.
And if you’d prefer to use a tag on your jar, instead of a label, I have one of those, too.
I printed mine on Kraft paper, but that’s just one option of many.
And if you’d like to use these labels to organize other areas of your home, there’s a blank version of both that you can fill in as you’d like.
Many web browsers have their own built-in PDF viewers, but they tend to be buggy. If you’re having trouble printing or editing one of our printables, click here for help.
