Prelude to Paperlessness

My wife just decided to buy a document scanner for her business

Very excited, because I’ve been wanting to go paperless in my office, but my flatbed scanner broke long ago, and since then, I’ve been using an app called Scanner Pro that uses the camera to make scans of documents. It’s surprisingly usable, and great for one-off scans, but anything more than one or three pages, and you’re going crazy. So tackling the scanning of all the paper in my filing cabinet was simply not an option.

It will likely be a while before I’m able to make good on my vow to go paperless, but I’m sure excited.

I’m preparing myself, too. David Sparks’ book Paperless has been a pretty thorough guide for how to get started.
