It is a worthy consideration….taking the time to scan in those things you really need, saving them on your computer and external hard drive, and subsequently shredding the information.
In considering the conversion process and available technology you could use a regular scanner, or document scanner like Neat Receipts or Canon- these are a couple of examples which include the software that aids in the paperless organization. While I have not used either, I understand that Neat Receipts takes your info directly into an inbox until you are ready to move it into the appropriate file. Read More→
