TEN of you are going to win a NeatReceipts Scanalizer!

by Guest Contributor

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)

  1. Write a post on your blog linking to this page and announcing the contest. Link to the NeatReceipts website as well. Share at least one use of the product that interests you (from my list above, from the demo video, or something new!).
  2. Leave a comment on this post.
  3. Non-bloggers are also eligible. Please share an intended use when you post your comment here, and then email the website link to a friend or two.

This contest is open to U.S. and Canadian addresses. You must put up your post and comment by July 12 at midnight EST. Come back on July 13 to see if you have won.

They have also offered a discount to our readers when you purchase the Scanalizer from their site in the month of July. Use code 5Minutes at checkout, and save $20 off the already reduced price of $199!

This is an AWESOME product! I would use it for a multitude of things. First, I am going to start a small business in the next year, so I would use it to track my business expenses and my donations to the various non-profits I support. I am intrigued by the thought of scanning recipes and sorting them–I would LOVE to do that. You have no idea how many Quick Cooking and Cooking Light magazines I have!!! I have a HORRIBLE time with paper clutter, so this would be a welcome addition to my digital world. Thanks for this opportunity. I am off to email the link to some friends and check out the website in-depth!

Thanks,

I saw a review of this gadget awhile ago and I’ve really wanted it ever since!!! For one, DH & I try to record every receipt, and we get behind quickly. Other uses would be for recipes, info needed for future events (attach to calendar entries), kids artwork, and THE GAZILLION notes to self/phone numbers/ etc. that we have on the bulletin board, the fridge, the desk, the dresser, the kitchen counter, etc. etc. etc. !!!! (then we could actually throw them out, and just search the computer when we wanted to find something).

We have yet to have a scanne. But, how cool is it that this one helps to sort and organize. If there is one thing that I can’t seem to keep up with, aside from ironing, it is the constant paperwork piles. Great idea!

I’d love to have one of these…..I have a regular scanner, but am too lazy to scan all the receipts!!! LOL!

Anywho–I’d use it for receipts for sure (so I could trash them and the clutter they bring with them) and I’d use it for my daugthers school work (not so much the art since most of it is 3D or layered and probably too thick for this machine, but for the worksheets and stuff for sure). I’d also scan things like business cards, invoices, bills, etc. That little machine could clear up half the floor space in my master bedroom closet…and its NOT a small closet!!

Thanks!

This looks so cool. I am not a blogger, so I am sending links to some bookkeeper friends of mine. I am a bookkeeper and MAN woudl this cut down on the paper. :) Other ideas-I love scanning in my paper to type white journaling on so I know it will match the layout, scanning photos at crops, scanning emergency reports to email to the hospital, scanning kid artwork, scanning in school info instead of trying to keep the paperwork all year long, or scanning business cards for records. Having these in emergency vehicles would be so awesome. Our department, and many others, have laptops on the trucks for GPS, reports, etc. Being able to scan something and send it to a hospital or an investigator would be awesome.

The best advice I ever got as a beginning teacher is to “handle each piece of paper only once” as you get bombarded with notices, notes, student info, etc. and it can turn into a huge mess on your desk! Well, this would be a way to do that!

I’m in! I have my post up and I would definately be able to use the Scanalizer! I have 7 kids, so schooling projects, photos, receipts, you name it, we can use it!

I think this could be a neat way to make a digital portfolio for homeschoolers. And keeping track of those receipts would be a wonderful thing.

Wow, what a lot of entries! My post is up:

Fantastic idea and product — and do I ever need it!

119 Chris July 8, 2007 at 5:49 pm

What a great product. I would use it for tracking expenses primarily. Currently I save receipts all month long and this would eliminate all those little pieces of paper. Also, my husband is a Pastor and I could see many uses for him personally to save documents, notes from others and even his expense receipts. Thanks for sharing this with us.

WOW! My hubby would be so happy if we were to win one of these! We track several sets of expenses and a Scanalizer would be amazing to help us reduce our clutter. I would also help my parents by scanning their important papers with ours for offsite storage.

OMG I would love to win this! Cheryl Harrell, an awesome Professional Organizer in north Atlanta, spent TEN hours iwth me in my home office recently. She is a bit of a miracle worker. She does not sell or carry ANY products, so she can be totally objective in recommending things.

Cheryl saw a Scanalizer at the NAPO conventin and mailed me the brochure – saying it would help me with my number one issue, which is organizing/saving/recording receipts for family spending (and for business spending, of late).

You see, my wonderful husband (he really is) has this thing about being responsible, and providing for us and for our retirement, and budgeting, and blah blah blah. So we always keep track of our spending. But I can’t simply spend $100 at Kroger and call it “Groceries”, because $10 might be shampoo, $6 is plastic wrap, $15 is laundry soap, etc. Plus, I need to reconcile this receipt when my Amex bill comes in, so where to keep it, etc.

I’m smart. I know the theory. But it’s hard to implement. Bottom line, please pick me! I will use this to the fullest extent allowed by the software LOL.
Thank you.

What wouldn’t I use it for? Maybe to weed out the huge three ring binder that I currently have stuffed full of folders stuffed full of papers that I could completely get rid of!

And that’s just the beginning!!! I’m thinking of all the papers that I wouldn’t “lose” when I needed them most!

I would LOVE to get my hands on this nifty thing! I HATE paper clutter, although you would never guess that from walking into my house. I would use this thing to scan anything and everything possible in order to get the stacks of paper out of my house! I’m thinking school schedules and other school related papers that have to be referred to during the year; recipes, articles I save for ideas and then can never find again, etc etc etc.

I’m very interested. I have over 300 Cd’s. I’ve been wanting away to keep a copy of the jewel case covers without having the clutter of small pieces of paper. It’s hard to keep the CD’s in a thin binder and have no place for the covers. I’m not a blogger but i’ll certainly pass on your website link to friends.
