I admit that I am a paper hoarder. I always feel like I need "proof" so I hold on to a lot. But two years ago I won the portable Neat scanner off a blog. I LOVE it. The software is great as it recognizes a lot off of what you're scanning in (receipts, bills, insurance) so it takes away a lot of the manual entry stuff. Now just recently I bought a new printer and we splurged on the fax model because it has the auto-feeder on it for scanning (worth the extra $30 in my eyes). So I've been scanning like a fool!
Here's my question though - do you scan and toss the original paper (of course not official things you'd need like marriage license, etc.)?
I can't seem to break the habit.
And on a similar note, what do you scan? Do you scan everything? Do you scan bills before you mail them (if you do)? Some bills I still like to mail a check to (like copays for lab work) so I have absolute proof.
