I have the same problem every Christmas.  I put receipts for gifts in the perfect spot so I won’t misplace them and then some how I do misplace just the one I need later to make a return.  It’s an embarrassing confession since I like to think I’m pretty organized.

 This year in less than 5 minutes, and that includes collecting the supplies around my house and then putting them back away, I made this folder to keep all the gift receipts in one place.
I used a backpack folder that I had gotten on sale a couple of months ago.  I prefer this style because it seems to hold the papers more securely, but you could easily use a manila folder you already have or a large envelope.

I grabbed my tape gun and some Christmas wrapping paper that caught my eye.

I simply ran tape around the edges of the folder and attached the paper.

Added a label.

And then added the receipts I’ve already started collecting.

It truly took me only about 5 minutes.  It cost me nothing since I used supplies I already had around the house.  I’m now ready for Christmas shopping.  If only the shopping were this quick and easy.
