You can make a cool Cash Register Receipt Wallet to remind you to mend your consumery ways (or remind you of all the money you've spent.)
This instructable shows 2 variations on making the wallet:
1) Flat weave and fold, tape into shape
2) Wrap weave or basket weave into shape by wrapping strips around the bend and tucking them in.
The Receipt Wallet helps you fight puchasing whims with whimsy.
I made the receipt wallet with my uncle (Woodenbikes). I made this because I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a wallet. I decited on receipts because I realized that they are usually not recycled.
Step 1: Aquire Lots of Receipts
Take lots of little trips to the store to buy:
Things you thought you needed or
Things that advertisements told you to buy, or
Things you thought would help your self esteem, etc
Basically just be an American! (consumer)
We are Consumers now. We used to be Citizens.
Alternatively: Ask the nice checkout person if you can have a bag of old receipts.
Make sure they do not think you are holding up the store.
