I am still working on organizing my home office/sewing/study/work/craft room. It has been a challenge for me, to say the least. I hate filing and most of the mess in my office is the mountain of paper that I don’t know what to do with and the rest of it is papers/bills, etc that need to be filed. I HATE FILING! And it’s pretty obvious from the mounds of paper everywhere. In the midst of dreading cleaning out the filing cabinet and organizing the files in an appropriate manner (notice there is no work being done in this sentence, nor have the piles moved at all since I took the 2nd photo MONTHS ago!!), I happened upon a not so novel idea! Why not scan all my files I absolutely have to keep and store them on disk?
We do it at work all the time. If it’s good enough for a business it should be good enough for me, right? So my handy dandy HP Officejet J3680 printer/scanner/copier/fax machine is getting a workout. It has been scanning bank statements, retirement accounts, monthly bills(I have to track this for work),medical bills, insurance and other ephemera for a couple of weeks now. I don’t know if it’s getting tired, but I am tired of looking at all this paper! I think it will be worth it in the end.
The paper shredder has also been working overtime.
I must be crazy.
