    It's always a good idea. If not for when you need to return something then at least to keep track of expenses.

    It's a good habit to get into IMO. Returns often require a receipt and they can help you create or maintain a budget ... some may even be useful for tax purposes.

    Yes! As many of 'em as possible! OCD + paranoia tends to do that to a person.

    Am afraid so. After tax filing, I'll keep them for about 3 years.

    I throw them in a cardboard box and then seal it at the end of the year and mark it with that year and it goes in storage somewhere.

    I would need to rent a truck for all of the receipts I get in a day. But it never fails, the second I decide to toss one, is when I will actually need it.

    I digitize my receipts, the ones I need to keep the originals of, I file away at hand for a year, then I move them to my business storage locker.
