I took this long holiday weekend and did something productive. Well actually I took 3 hours or so of it and scanned a whole bunch of old documents. My office just bought 2 high speed scanners that have document feeders. I plugged on into my laptop and just dropped 40 pages at a time in the feeder and scanned. it even does double sided papers. Jayson gave me the idea a few weeks ago. I finally had time to do allot of my stuff.
I scanned almost all my old bills and statements. I like to do that. I want everything electronic. I scanned a bunch of old report cards and other crap I had left over my parents saved from my pre college days. I even scanned a bunch of really old medical records, letters, and stuff from elementary school. it was kind of cool going through this old stuff. I maybe scanned 500 pieces of paper today. I have a big stack of scanned stuff locked in a drawer at work. If all the documents are backed up I will begin to shred the originals.
Now all I need to do is make a DVD backup everything and the job will be complete. I should begin to do this every few months so I don’t have extra papers lying around. My goal is to have everything electronically stored. It saves space. And is easier to search.
