the war on paper, part one
THE WAR ON PAPER
For me one of the biggest time sucks, is the clerical life that many of use when it comes to paper. These next few posts, I will share some of the ways I try to combat the mountain of paper that can accumulate in our lives.
Scan it! I use an app called "Scannable" for critical papers. When I scan it, it can become searchable in tools like Evernote. I believe Apple Notes, Bear, and Google Drive have similar abilities. I could just say scan everything and it will solve everything. It won't, but it's start. I recommend scanning documents you may have to reference or access via a device. I once scanned the warranty for battery for car. The battery died. I took it back to the store (short period of time, a couple of months). They had no record of me or my warranty that I purchased. I shared my clear image and they honored it. I know it's a bizarre example, but it was better than having a file folder draw (The old Winston), that I would have to dig through to find a piece of paper.
Next I will tell you a thought (or two) on what to do with the images.
Finding ways to save you minutes at a time, it adds up -Winston
