We introduce the concept of a novel digital household account book which lessens the burden of manually entering single items. In this paper, we present the results of two studies. We first conducted an online questionnaire with 142 participants to assess requirements. One of the lessons learned supports our initial notion to enhance digital household account books with automatic receipt capturing for increasing the acceptance rate. Subsequently, we analyzed a corpus of 117 German receipts in a technical study to learn about their structure and content. The results from these two studies form the basis for the realization of the concept.
