Make Receipts More Useful
  [vote for,

During everyday life, I accumulate receipts. Largely through politeness. I mean, I don't really need a piece of paper demonstrating that I bought a Diet Coke, 2 pints of milk and some chewing gum. I have the items, and frankly the only reason I bought the Diet Coke and the gum was because I've heard credit card transactions cost money to process, and I like the shop... it's not going under on my watch. Anyhow, the receipt is unnecessary... but they just keep printing them... and I'm to polite to say no once they exist.

During everyday life, I frequently find myself without a tissue. This is because although they're necessary, my upbringing has taught me that anything which is available in "scented" or "infused" should be avoided.

Let's sort this out. Print receipts on tissue-like material, and all of a sudden, I'm a super prepared guy who always has a wallet full of tissues for all of your fluid absorbing needs.

       I'm not certain about the application you suggest, but I agree with making them more useful. A couple of ideas down the line there is a cry for a microwaveable paper plate, but I guess that would be a bit much to ask.
