OCD Accomplishment

While cleaning my desk, I had the fun of discovering that all of my Christmas Receipts from the past seven Christmases were still available!!! Normal folks will groan here because this is plain crazy but how satisfying! No year thrown away. Yay!
These start from Christmas 2008. I keep all receipts in one envelope in my purse beginning in late October while shopping for gifts. The reason is, I can make returns with no difficulty. Sometimes, I add them up to see the total spent for Christmas. It also comes in handy to have the receipt if a gift item breaks or doesn't fit. The envelope is thinner in 2008 because our family has grown  since then. I went ahead and kept these envelopes while cleaning because I like the continuity involved.
