Scanning your papers

Discussion in 'Personal' started by anon4582, May 14, 2011.

  1. Who was it who said they scanned their bills, keeping a soft copy on their computer and shredding the hard copy?


    I'm not sure why I never thought of doing that before; I have far too much paperwork everywhere.


    Thanks for that idea [​IMG], I'm hoping to have a decluttered house within the next week

    Remember that you may need to show utility bills or bank statements for identity purposes (opening accounts etc)

    I wouldn't be too quick to to throw everything away
     
  3. Hard drives crash....paper records don't. You can't have that many bills that a two drawer filing cabinet can't handle.
     
  4. You need originals. Whoever told you to shred, was presumptious.

    I was having this discussion with Hubby a moment ago. I'm thinking more clutter paper bits that I keep just in case, but generally don't really need. Have a habit of keeping toot, so thought this was a cool idea.

    I promise, not to shred utility/statement type things. Too many times in the past have I had to dig those out [​IMG]
