a box of reciepts - lost manualsWhile the garbage bags full of wrapping paper, and possibly some manuals, are already on the curb, we want to help you make sure that you never lose another receipt, warranty or manual from your holiday shopping haul ever again.

How? The first step is to sign up for an Evernote account if you don't already have one. Once you have an Evernote account, log in and create a folder called "Holiday 2010," which is where you'll keep all of the important information for the gifts you've received.

Since almost any warranty will require a receipt or a gift receipt, the next thing you need to do is scan or take pictures of all your receipts and warranty info as well as the actual items. Type in the name of the item as the note title and save the note.We don't recommend throwing away your receipts, but now if you lose the receipts or warranties, you'll be covered.

Now that you've backed up the info you need to deal with returns or warranty issues we want to show you how to find all those manuals when you need to reset the Blu-Ray player in three months without looking through piles of paper.

Head over to Retrevo.com, where you can find the lost manuals for thousands of consumer electronics, from game consoles and MP3 players to eReaders and HDTVs. If you sign up for an account at Retrevo you can add all your Christmas gifts to your account for easy access year round.
