The Scantini Helps You Stay Organized #backtoschool #giveaways

by Jennifer Sikora

Jennifer here to share with you about an amazing product that is sure to help you in staying organized this back to school season. We were provided with an item for review and one to give away. All opinions remain our own.


Since both my husband and I work from home, we have receipts and paper trails running all over the house. I have this HUGE box where I keep them all stored. Can you imagine how hectic it is when I try to find a specific receipt only to have trouble locating it?

When I was recently introduced to the Scan-tini, I jumped for joy — because not only is it going to keep our home business organized, but this year — I am also going to use it for school as well.

Canon P-215

I am creating a portfolio for my daughter of all of her artwork, drawings, writings and more, and the Scan-tini is definitely going to come in handy at keeping it all organized.

This would also be great if you have a preschooler who loves to decorate your refrigerator with his or her drawings. Once it is time to change it out, just scan them in, and you can keep a complete portfolio of your child’s work as well. It is the perfect companion for Back to school time!
