Mom’s hilarious hack for receipts has people ‘feeling attacked’

Anyone who uses a handbag knows they’ve got approximately one million receipts crumpled at the bottom of it. 

Like clockwork, the routine is the same. You walk into a shop, purchase what you need, then shove the receipt into some random purse compartment without so much as a glance. One mom on TikTok, who uses the handle @dollface1169, came up with the perfect “hack” for all those old receipts. The end result just might not be anything you had hoped for.

The mom held a stack of crinkled receipts as she spoke directly to the camera with a deadpan tone. 

“Not everyone realizes this, but after you clean the pile of receipts out of your purse and stack them together, it makes a teeny tiny book about why you’re broke,” she joked

People found the mother’s hilarious video a little too relatable.

“I came here for entertainment, and instead I feel attacked,” a user said

“Oh my god, I felt this on a personal level,” another commented

“Oh my gosh, I was expecting some DIY. I cried,” someone added

Others suggested online shopping as a great alternative because it “helps the book like slimmer,” while some said they avoided collecting receipts at all.
