I'm spinning around about the topic of making some usage of receipts from shops to improve some aspect of my health and shopping habits. For example - from the perspective of the month or the year I would like to know how many sodas and candy bars I bought... It's hard for me to resist a small dose of sugar - and I won't see these details it in a statement of account. There are only info about amount of money and location of the store.
There are some tools which helps to import receipts and in some cases even digitalize it.. but there are a few flaws of that process. First. Remember to take a receipt with you. Second. Collect receipts and keep it properly. I mean do not squeeze them, don't leave them in the car in the sunny day, etc. Most of the people I know do something opposite. Third. Make the effort, scan/ocr, import to excel then data clearing is time consuming.
Believe me, at this moment it looks like a date processing center and no-one want to do that by yourself just to find out that you but whole bunch of unhealthy stuff... ;)
Do you have similar problem? How do you deal with it?
