Finished 1.0 of my no-more-receipt work tool

Daniel Jackson @DanielJackson

After fighting for a year and almost destroying my keyboard at least once, Receipt Runner 1.0 is now out for Windows, Linux and Mac πŸš€πŸŽ‰πŸ§ΎπŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ!

Check it out at http://receiptrunner.com/ !

Next week I'll start pushing it, but I wanted to drop it here first as IH has been a huge inspiration to make me go through with this!

Why build it?

I've been freelancing since 2008 get a lot of receipts in my Gmail 🧾 ☹️ . Every two months I deliver receipts to my accountant and have to locate the right ones, print them to PDF and deliver them. That was too tedious, so two years ago I built a simple version of this tool to help myself automate it.

Receipt Runner simply does the exact same work I would have to do manually, only it does it automatically. It's pretty magical πŸ¦„

It's been so useful to me that I've spent the last year learning a lot more to be able to make it into a product. It's been a journey!

Hopefully Receipt Runner can help a few of you avoid the big receipt work as well πŸŽ‰

Let me know what you think!
