Winner: Julie – uhawk71@xxxxxxx
Paper. Receipts. Business Cards. Recipes. Kids’ artwork. It all seems to just pile up on your desk or in a box or even in a drawer. While I always felt like I was organized, I still felt like all I did was push paper around. I’d take the business card with me and then type in the information into my contacts and then put the card into a drawer. A week later, I’d see the card and check to see if I needed to add it (as I have a short term memory) and so I’d notice it was already entered. I’d think I was being smarter by placing it somewhere else – only to it again in a few more weeks. That was a total waste of time for me.
I have been using a NeatReceipts® system for nearly a year and it has really made a huge difference. I scan my receipts for taxes so I have them handy when I need them instead of searching in January of each year. We also scan in recipes we find that we want to try – so no more “what did I do with that recipe?” The ideas are endless!!! The only thing I didn’t like was that if I had scanned something onto my computer, that is where it stayed. On mine. If my husband needed to get to something, he’d have to put down his laptop and have me check into it for him. But that is no more!!
Neat has launched a new NeatCloud® service. If you know anything about cloud servers, you know that your information is all stored in a “magic cloud” which can be accessed by any computer or mobile device at any time. This is just so convenient!!! I actually had to go into my CPA’s office a couple of weeks ago and he asked me about a receipt and I was able to go to my NeatMobile® app, sign in and show it to him – right on the spot! (He was pretty impressed and asked me to show him how I did that).
It is not just about staying organized at home. It is about having access to all of the things you need at any time. You can scan anything you want. If you sign your child up for soccer and the form contains the map, address and details about practice, you can scan that into your system. You will then sync it with your cloud account and instantly have access when you need it! GENIOUS!!!!
You can now download the NeatMobile® for either your iPhone or Android device – which is free. Right now, you can sign up and get a free 30 day trial of NeatCloud® as well. The cost for a personal account is only $5.99 per month – which allows one user access (one email address). Not a bad price to help keep yourself more organized and still have access to the information you need anywhere you need it!!
One reader will receive a NeatReceipts® system with a 30 day NeatCloud® trial offer.
