This review and contest is posted by Jennifer Donovan, 5 Minutes for Books feature columnist.
After I posted about the Organized for Life book and the challenge to tame paper clutter, a representative from NeatReceipts asked me if I would be interested in trying out their product, which offers a way to conquer paper clutter. I tried it. I loved it. Read on to find more about it, and how you can win one of TEN units.
The NeatReceipts Scanalizer is really limitless in its potential uses. It was first designed for business purposes, but they have expanded it to include many personal applications as well. The unique thing about this portable personal scanner is the software which stores, sorts and analyzes the data that you provide as you scan in your items. You can scan your child’s artwork and date it by month or year and store it forever! You can scan recipes or articles from magazines and then sort them and search for them by title or categories that you have assigned.
Of course one of the original purposes was to store receipts for business reimbursement or tax purposes. Since I do not do well with paper, I love this idea. It is so slim and portable that if you or your husband is a business traveler, you can eliminate the risk of losing track of the receipts by taking it along with you and scanning them in right away (it’s about the size and weight of a curling iron). You can export and email the receipts immediately!
Speaking of exporting, think about how this would enable you to share your child’s artwork with family via email.
I have also thought about using it to store and track grocery or other budget spending. The software makes it so easy. Watch the demo on the site to see how the unique software works for you.
Would you like to own one of these yourself? The company is very interested in tapping into ways to use their product in the home. To be eligible to win one of TEN units (valued at almost $200)
