Have you ever wasted an afternoon looking for a product manual or a receipt to prove your warranty is still in effect? Here is an easy way to get all those booklets and receipts organized and easily accessible.

Purchase a large three-ring binder notebook and a box of clear sheet protectors. Every time you purchase a new product for your home, immediately staple the receipt to the inside cover. Then place the booklet in a sheet protector and file it in the notebook. It’s helpful to alphabetize your manuals, but not absolutely necessary. Also, note the date you mailed in the warranty or registered the product online.

Any other important information, such as service records, can be filed with the product’s manual. Now you will have all pertinent information at your fingertips, which will save you lots of time in the future.
