“You have 365 days to return this. Just keep your receipt…”

Ikea recently implemented a 365 day return policy. They have joined the ranks of other companies like Zappos and REI who give you a VERY generous amount of time to try and item to make sure it is a good fit.

This is a HUGE win for us shoppers. But, who keeps a receipt? I know mine become shriveled up pieces of paper that are stuck in some pocket while time fades the cheap ink.

Instead, I offer you a solution.

Eliminate stress and simplify your life by taking five minutes and installing a free app called CamScanner.


Add CamScanner to your iPhone or iPad.

Add CamScanner to your Android Phone or Tablet.

CamScanner allows you to take a photo of your document. The real magic of this app is that it will allow you to:

Quickly digitize all kinds of paper documents: receipts, notes, invoices, whiteboard discussions, business cards, certificates, etc.

You can crop your document

You can share your document on email, fax, Dropbox, Google Drive, etc

You can scan multiple documents and put them into one PDF

There are settings to make a document black and white, retain the color or use “magic color,” which will make everything look like if you had the original document.

The free version has a ton of features. If you end up using it every day, like I do, you may want to upgrade to the paid version.

I was amazed that I was able to throw about hundreds of pounds of paper by using this app to go “paperless.”

Since everything is now digital and stored in the cloud I no longer have to fear losing that important document (or that “do I have my receicpt” aniexty).
