Keep backups of receipts

When you incur expenses for a campaign or organization, always keep copies and a backup of your receipts. There are a few key reasons:

1) The organization might lose their copy and need it again, let's call this the absent-minded boss problem
2) The organization might refuse to reimburse you for a specific item, the confrontational boss
3) The organization might refuse to reimburse you for an item and not tell you, the evil boss.

I've seen and worked for all three. Each one should tell you that keeping a backup of your expenses is critical. Even if you can write-off that one invoice, these reimbursements will add up over time.

Always keep backups of your receipts.
