Saving checks or just the receipts?

by Laura Crocker
(Hartwell, GA)

When we purchase items with a church check from Wal-Mart, they run the check through their system and I sign the electronic pad. I am given the receipt and check back. The check has electronic printing on it. Do I keep this check and file it with the receipt or do I shred it. The amount will show up as a debit on our bank statement. But not as copy of the check. Thank you.

Document the transaction with the complete supporting papers--put the receipt and the returned paper check together in the file.
