Are you drowning in a sea of paperwork? Invoices, receipts, notes, business cards and bills are just a few documents that come to mind. You can't throw them away, but you don't want them cluttering up your house.
And with the new year just days away, taxes will be on your mind soon. Do you have all those documents you're going to need when you're filing your returns?
Leaving paper documents lying around not only clutters up your workspace, but if they contain personal or sensitive information it can lead to identity and credit-card fraud.
There are plenty of places you can cut down your paper use. These receipts, bills and bank statements are great places to start. I suggest digitizing them and keeping them in a centralized location.
Wouldn't you know it, I know just the app that can help you. It's called CamScanner and it has been downloaded by more than 60 million people in 200 different countries, so you know it has to be good.
CamScanner uses your mobile gadget's camera to scan all types of documents. All you need to do is point your device's camera at the document and snap a photo.
Then, you can crop those whiteboard notes, auto-enhance a spotty receipt, save invoices or contracts as a PDF. You can also share and upload to a location of your choice, which could be within the app, or in four different cloud storage services including Box, Google Drive, Dropbox and Evernote.
You will also be able to print your scanned documents, share them, or even add colleagues or other to collaborate on certain documents.
Note the CamScanner app is free, but you can upgrade to a premium subscription. To download the app, click one of the blue buttons below or click here for Apple devices and click here for Android devices.
