Does anybody currently save their purchase receipts to Obsidian?
If so, please could you share your workflow? For example:
- Scanned through app or physical scanner?
- How do the files reach your vault?
- Do you use any automation?
I’m currently trying to decide whether I could get away with saving them as a JPG or whether I should PDF/OCR them. I’m not that fussed about searching their content.
My approach with documents is to save the raw file in my attachments folder but then I don’t refer to the file directly. I create a note which links to the raw file and then I only refer to the note - allowing for tagging, notes, linking, aliases, etc.
UPDATE - I have decided to use PDF.
