This receipt book is versatile for use for general purposes, and it’s not bulky either. It has carbonless copy capability.
I have a need to write receipts regularly to one of our sons, who pays me cash for rent and a couple of other things. Occasionally, clients will pay me in cash as well. I have found that these books are not only inexpensive, but they offer enough options for tracking certain payments.
Of course There are spaces for the name, date, and amount of payment in both text and figures. Each receipt has a six-digit number.
The explanation line begins with two checkboxes. If the receipt is to be for rent, you can just check that. Or, you can check the other box and then add a description on the extra line.
At the bottom left, if the payment is against a running balance, There are three boxes for the balance on the account, the amount of this payment, and then the amount still due.
The center column has check boxes for type of payment: cash, check, money order, or credit card.
The bottom right allows you to write in dates that the payment may cover, if it’s for rent, with From and To blanks, and finally a place for your signature.
I also like the size of this book. It is just 2 3/4 inches by 5 3/8 inches, so it easily slips into a cubby hole on my desk. Each booklet has 50 receipts so it doesn’t run out too quickly. The cardboard flap that you need to place between each set of papers is attached to the back of the book, so I don’t lose it. The page that you rip out to give to the payer is white, and the sheet for the payee is yellow. The pages tear out easily.
The only negative I can think of is that you can’t use a felt-tip marker, because you have to press hard enough for the copy to imprint, but this would be true of any booklet that makes copies.
A receipt book seems like a really “who cares” kind of item. But I like the versatility of this one enough that I keep going back to get the same kind.
