Check out this great tip from Hip2Save reader, Karen…
Two years ago, I bought my kids new backpacks for school. Within the first month, we had a zipper break and a strap break. I did not have the receipts and could not remember where I had purchased them so I had to fork out more money for new ones..again.
Last year we had to buy new ones again as the ones from the year before were in pretty bad condition. This time I cut the tags off and paper clipped them to the receipt. I then put each child’s name on the backpack tags so I would know which tags went with which bag. I slid them in an envelop and filed them away. I also did this with their lunch bags. Sure enough, one month into school we had another broken strap (how does this happen?) and a seam that came apart and on a lunchbox, one of the zippers broke. I had all my tags in one place and it was a very easy, painless exchange! This year I only have to replace one backpack and all three lunch bags, but I have already started my envelope and am ready just in case!
