If you are gift giving this holiday season you will be bombarded with receipts. Place an envelope in your purse, and use it for all the gifts you buy. When you give a gift, you will know exactly where the receipt is if you need it.
For an more advanced technique, create two envelopes-one for receipts of gifts and one for receipts of supplies (such as wrapping paper and cards.)
This will also allow you to have a running total of your holiday expenditures at the end of the season. Being organized financially will help you save money.
