Your tips today are compliments of one of my all-time favorite websites -

The folks at have great advice on how to keep track and access receipts, warranties, and manuals from your holiday shopping and gift getting.

The first step is to sign up for an Evernote account. Then log in and create a folder called "Holiday 2010."

After that - scan or take pictures of all your receipts and warranty info as well as the actual items. Then save the info as a note in your holiday folder. Now if you lose the paper - you'll be covered.

And here's a great place to find lost manuals. has lost manuals for thousands of consumer electronics. Everything from game consoles to eReaders and HDTVs and Blu-ray players.

If you sign up for a Retrevo account, you can add your holiday gifts to your account for easy access year around.

No more hunting through boxes and piles of paper. Can't beat that, right?
