Credit Card receipt confetti

by astanhaus


I have a love/hate relationship with credit card receipts.

I know better than to throw them away, fully intact for just anyone to copy the #s and my signature.  Plus, they are super helpful when I need to return a purchase. And I appreciate them when I need a confirmation of a suspect charge on my credit card.

Ugh, but they take up a surprising amount of space in my not-so-spacious apartment.

At the end of every month, I make confetti out of the receipts that are more than two months old. I do leave out the receipts of major purchases during my confetti creation. But otherwise, no receipt is too tiny to be further cut up.

Enjoy scissor sisters!
