It’s a good idea to have a special spot to keep receipts for gifts that you are buying at this busy time of year. That will help you in two ways:
- If you are trying to stay within a budget, it will be easy to track your spending.
- If something needs to be returned, the receipt will be easy to locate.
A simple envelope will serve the purpose just fine, or a zipper plastic bag marked gift receipts.
Either way, it’s a quick transfer at the end of your shopping trip.
If you are at all unsure about the size, colour, or suitability of a gift, save everyone some trouble by requesting a gift receipt when you make the purchase. Tape it to the gift immediately. They don’t show the price, but simplify life for the giver, the recipient, and the store.
