I do keep receipts especially if they are for the things that I bought that cost a lot. But for the little things I usually keep them for a couple of days or a week the most. You can never tell if your ever gonna need a refund!

I keep all receipts that are for items that are expensive, may break down or be defective and may need returned. I keep receipts for items I buy as gifts for others in case they need to return the items. I keep all these receipts for a year. After that I throw them away. I also keep the boxes of such items at times just in case because the stores often want the items returned in the original box.

Sure glad I keep receipts. I had my daughter go to the store for me and pick up a couple multimedia tower shelves for me. I put one together yesterday and the second one came out of the box broken. She had to return it today and would not have been able to without the receipt.

i keep receipts of those electrical items, luxuries and items that i feel may not last long where i need to change for a new one within the warranty period. apart from that, i do not keep receipts as i agree with you that it is messy to have so many receipts around.

Yes, I always keep receipts. They are reminders to me not to spend some more. But theres one annoying event that I cant forget. I paid 15,000 for my mothers operation but the doctor never gave me the receipt no matter how much I tried and even cost me money to get it, travelled for two hours and still not get anything. Well, I dont know if his a tax evader but the way he is acting makes me think that he is.
