Whenever I buy anything that comes with a warranty (be it computer hardware, a fridge, a car or just new shoes), I do two things:
1. I file the warranty documents in a special folder,
2. I create an RTM task due on the warranty expiration date.
If something gets broken I can instantly check if it's still covered by warranty without sifting through all the receipts.
I also created a simple Smart List:
dueWithin: "1 month" AND tag:warranty
This way I can check if there's nothing wrong with the equipment just before the warranty expires and get it fixed or replaced free if needed.
