Save That Stuff

Save That Stuff

How often do you order something online or sign up for something on a Web site? I’m guessing you do either of those quite often, because it’s just the way of the world these days. Almost every Web site you visit either has something you need to register for or they’re trying to get you to buy their products. It’s certainly not bad if you do this kind of thing, but there are some rules you should make for yourself when you do.

I’m mainly talking about saving the information you accumulate from those transactions. It’s best to save all of that for your future records. For example, if you purchase something from WorldStart’s Web site, we always send you a confirmation e-mail, no matter what. When you get those, you should always save them, just in case you need it for something else. Those e-mails will always contain an order ID number and it’s very helpful for us if you have that. The same goes for any other Web site you buy from. Always keep your receipts on hand, because you never know when you’ll need to refer back to them.

This also holds true for any items you may sign up for. For instance, if you register with WorldStart’s site, you have to create a username and password. Make sure you save that information so you never have to worry about forgetting it when you need it. This applies to any Web site that has some sort of registration. The best thing to do is create a folder just for those receipts, confirmations, etc. You can either keep it on your desktop or in your e-mail program. Either way, you should save all of that information each time it comes about. It only makes sense, right? So, if you haven’t already, start saving now, ya hear?!
