I did some clearing this morning and have found anywhere between three and five years worth of printed receipts for petty expenditures. I have two questions.

1) What has my life become?
2) Is there anything useful I should do with these or can I throw them out?

I was thinking just the other day that I should start storing my receipts properly, in case I ever need to return anything. Most just end up crumpled in my pockets, and occasionally get turned out and scattered around my bedroom floor.

You should really keep a hold of receipts for as long as the warranties on the products last.

If you want to do something useful you could buy a camping stove and burn them to make a cup of tea.
If you're a smoker you could use them to roll your own filters.
That's about all I can think of.

Only if you like inhaling ink fumes... though I guess if you're already inhaling carbon monoxide, hydrogen cyanide and ammonia what's a few ink solvents going to matter?

My old flatmate used to do it, I often considered pointing out to him that the reason receipts are shiny is because they're coated with BPA, but as you said I decided that would probably be the least of his worries.

The BPA coating on receipts has been suggested as one of the reasons why supermarket checkout staff have such a high cancer risk.
