Sometimes when we open that new gadget up, we rush to its electronic goodness and spend hours playing with it. But what happens to the rest of the documentation stored in that packaging? Make a habit of putting it all in a “Gadget Box”.
A gadget box is an efficient and organized solution for storing receipts, invoices, warranties, and other important documents related to your gadgets. It can be made of various materials, including cardboard, plastic, or any other material that fits your needs. This physical storage solution provides a permanent home for your documents, ensuring that you can easily find them when you need them.
Whenever you buy your new gadget, whether it be a new TV, Smartphone or even a keyboard and mouse, store your invoice and warranty paperwork in a safe place. Ideally purchase a filing box of some description or even use a spare drawer in the house to organize all of those important documents. This will save you from stressing out trying to find that all-important invoice when you might just need it more than ever.
To make the most out of your gadget box, consider creating separate folders or envelopes for each gadget. Label each folder or envelope with the name of the gadget and the date of purchase, making it easier to identify and locate the relevant documents.
Not to mention, it’s very useful for resale value if you still have the original documentation, and kind of cool to see just how long you’ve had your gadgets for and where you purchased them from.
