Do you save your receipts? Aparently somebody saves a little too many.

Oh please...
That site is so old... I've seen it everywhere... and I'm pretty sure I've seen it here before too.
Comeon people.. quality blogs, please.

I did a search for this info on metafiter before I posted and found nothing. I had never seen this site before, nor heard of it, so I thought I'd post it. Sorry if everyone already had.

That reminds me, I have to clean out my purse.

a collection of receipts found as bookmarks in sci-fi paperbacks at yardsales might be slightly intriguing... but this? about as interesting as a collection of used toilet paper patterns from yr local Getty.

I doubt that Bane is EVERYONE...This is a totally cool site, although obviously some people don't get the irony, nor the genius of socially constructed art. It's Public Art..the receipts aren't the thing - it's the collective fiction of a man's life created through minutia. The fact that it's a Wal*Mart, something EVERY American, at least, can relate too since it's a part of many people's everyday life (and they are all practically identical) is the cohesive factor. God, people...try thinking outside of the box for a change.
vitaflo, it was a great suggestion.
