Do you keep all your receipts and spending information to check against your bank and credit card statements? Or do you throw them away and trust to your instincts when checking on your card spending?

I keep absolutely everything - and recommend to anyone who listens to do so as well. I do run my own company, so legally I need to keep all receipts and statements for 5 years - it also helps that I'm anally retentive in my processes and checking everything. Thankfully this attitude has rubbed off onto my husband and other family members which has served us well, when things have gone awry.
I do if a big-ish spend.
I don't keep them all, that just drives me nuts...anyway I don't do much big
I keep all receipts very carefully but have had to badger and nag my husband to keep his. Now, he empties out a great wadge of them out of his wallet once in a blue moon and I have to try to make sense of them.... but that's still better than him not keeping them at all!
I don't use a card in shops, just cash, so I only keep the recipe long enough to know I am happy with my purchase.
No, I throw most of mine away. Keep receipts only for things like warranties and possible exchanges/refunds.

No I don't, I would not be able to stand the guilt of knowing I spent that much while shopping although it seemed like a good idea at the time!
I used to keep bank receipts but now I keep track of these transactions online. I take screen shots of transactions and save them till later.
ALWAYS have checked receipts against CC Statements'.
Very silly if you don't!
