Stop stacks of paper from standing between you and organizational bliss with these steps for taking your documents digital, from Teens in Tech’s editorial director, Emmanuel Banks.
- Gather the necessary equipment. You need a scanner to digitize your documents, a shredder for sensitive paperwork and some high-quality folders to file away important originals.
- Select a document-storage service. Evernote and Lemon Wallet are two great multifunctional services.
- Sort, scan, store and scrap. Sort your paper into three piles: “Crucial Paper” for bills, documents and mail requiring an action; “Stuff I’d Like to Keep”; and “Junk and Clutter.” Handle each stack appropriately.
- Recycle. Recycle your shredded and unshredded paper waste. If your city doesn’t have a recycling program, you can find one through the mobile application iRecycle or 1800Recycling.com.
