My husband had this brilliant idea to go through all our receipts that he had saved for products that we bought. He put the receipts with the instruction booklets and put them in a page protector in a three ring binder. He also copied each receipt because we found that the ink on receipts starts disappearing after 6 months to a year.
The reason we do this:
Just a few days ago our Cuisinart blender stopped working. It was about 18 months old and we bought it at Bed, Bath and Beyond. My husband called them and told them what happened and that it was definitely over a year old but we had the receipt. They said bring it in and we could find a replacement for the amount we paid.
So we did it and they honored what they said. We got a brand new blender/food processor by just bringing in our receipt. It pays to be organized! I have to thank my husband for this. He did a great job. It took him half a day to copy and organize the receipts but it saved us $100!
