My new favorite iPhone app is a Receipt App that let’s you say goodbye to paper receipts! Paper hoarding is always a struggle when attempting to keep an organized home. My weakness has always been receipts! I never know when I may need to return something so I hold every receipt until it expires! This makes for a huge mess of receipts that are impossible to disguise as pretty. I couldn’t be more excited to tell you about my new discovery that has revolutionized my life! Ready for ‘Get it Organized’ – Receipts!
Stud went to IKEA this weekend to do a return for me. Sweet, right! Guess what I forgot to give him — the receipt! The sweet clerks told Stud they would let him do the return if I could text a picture of the receipt to him. Brilliant! Such an amazing concept that led Stud on a little hunt — He found a great new app for me! Proximiant — Receipt App is a total life changer! Seems to good to be true, but it’s not! On your iPhone, Android, and iPad devices you can store receipts, track expenses, categorize receipts, and stay organized. And the best part, Stud and I are sharing an account so we can do each others returns very easily. Here’s how it works —
1. Click on the Camera – it will bring up the digital receipt, take a snap shot, it stores it.
If its a CRAZY long receipt it’ll piece it together!
2. Add the store name, date, and amount.
3. Then categorize. Groceries, clothing, auto, entertainment, tax deductions, home improvement projects, etc. Perfect for tracking your spending and keeping up on your tax receipts! Looking at the pic below — someone’s been doing a little shopping!!!
And as a stay-at-home mom I can pretend I’m in the real world and email or print myself an expense report!
