We're about to get rid of this monster of a filing cabinet:
Thanks to Neat Receipts, a mobile scanner and digital filing system:
Here's how it works: You scan in your receipts, business cards, invoices, recipes, medical insurance forms, just about anything. Then, this smart little guy "identifies and extracts the important information—and automatically organizes it for you." You're then able to search, share, or print the documents at will.
Instead of giving you all the specs here, I recommend you head over to The Neat Company website for a complete video tour and more info.
What I can say is that using this "wonder machine" is WAY better than getting buried under piles and piles of paperwork. It's an organized person's dream-come-true.
If you already own a nice scanner, you may want to just purchase the software. It's simple, straightforward, and available for $79.95.
We're on our way to a paperless life and that feels good. Want to join us? C'mon...you know you want to shred up all that paperwork and toss your filing cabinet out the window...
