Papers Organized

If you're anything like me, you are surrounded by a ton of papers. Anything from receipts, to kids' school papers, to letters, pictures and old magazine clippings. They cause me a lot of angst because you get one stack organized and within a week, there's another whole pile to go through again. It's maddening!

I've been looking at personal scanners for a few months though because I am thinking this may be a good system for me. But it has to be fast...and easy because with all of the papers that need organized, I don't want it to take longer to scan them all than it would be to file them all. So the software has to be pretty user friendly and basic. I also want it to be small and one that doesn't need to be opened and closed each paper - it needs to feed.

Well I think I finally found a good one and even better, they have a 30 day trial on this one called NeatReceipts. I'm so excited to get it. Maybe I'll finally get my arms around my biggest organizing dilemma. I'll let you know how I like it!

Okay, you're going to have to share what you plan on doing, because the idea of paperless, as liberating as it sounds, is simultaneously a bit terrifying. So yeah, do share friend :)

Oh, I looked into that. I couldn't justify the price to Chad. Instead I borrowed the neighbors shredder and destroyed anything that we didn't absolutely need. The rest is in file folders. It looks like a great tool though, I'm very jealous.
