Hi Jennifer,

When I really need to keep a receipt, I do one of a couple of things.  One
thing I might do if I plan ahead, is I take a small slate and stylus and an
index card with me to the store.  I can Braille the card with the name of
the item, the store name, date and amount and anything else I think is
important enough to want to retrieve easily.  I can then put the receipt
with the card and file it when I get home.  I staple the receipt to the
card.  Sometimes I ask the clerk at the store to staple it for me.  As I
said, this only happens if I'm really thinking ahead.  More often than not,
I take the stuff home and do the braille there.  I also fold any important

What do you do to tell your receipts apart without scanning every single
receipt? I shop at bed bath and beyond from time to time and in order to
return something you have to have the original receipt. However all of the
receipts are just a piece of paper. I tried explaining to the person on the
phone that I am blind and cannot tell one receipt from the other, but they
said if I did not have my original receipt they would deduct 20% off of the
original purchase price.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated! As I do not want to lose that
20% just because I am blind. 

I find the same thing at target.

I like that staples will E-mail the receipt and so will the Apple Store
making it easy and accessible, but majority of stores won't.
Thank you for your advice have a good day.
