I'm now completely in love. I have discovered the world of "saving as pdf's" instead of printing everything out and scanning then saving important paper documents to my Evernote account where I have organized all my statements, bills, insurance papers, kids schoolwork and art, and random bits of paper that normally pile up on my desk!
Then I discovered that I could use a combination of two programs, Dropbox and Smartvault, to scan all my company's invoices, bills, statements and other paperwork then attach them to the appropriate Quickbooks entries and back it all up at the same time! Ahhh...to never have to file again...and to know exactly where to find what I need...QUICKLY! Okay, so the transition has not been painless but let's just say it's been pain less.
To find out more about using Scansnap scanners, Evernote, Dropbox and Smarvault to set up your own paperless office, I highty recommend checking out Brooks Duncan's website Documentsnap.com.
And no. That's not really my messy desk. Mine's slightly cleaner than that now.
