I once started to work with a woman who insisted that she needed to keep all receipts so that she could record them. Although she’d “fallen behind” on the task, she assured me that she’d do it and that it had nothing to do with the job I was helping her with (organizing her papers).
Unless the receipts have something to do with your taxes or are for pricey items or something you may return, if you have a stack of receipts that you thought you’d record to track your budget, toss the old ones and start with today’s receipts.
