Win-It Wednesday: NeatDesk Paper Management System!

by Tara Kuczykowski on August 24, 2011 · 814 comments

Join me every week for Win-It Wednesday, with 24-hour giveaways just for you!

With school starting soon, the paper monster will be here in full force before you can say "Don't forget your lunch" and kiss the kids as they run out the door. Keep everything from newsletters to receipts to bills in order and under control with the NeatDesk from Neat. No more shuffling papers or investing money and space into large filing cabinets. NeatDesk helps you stay organized and manage the clutter by scanning your important papers into virtual file folders.

It's quite easy to pick out what my biggest challenge in keeping a neat and tidy office is -- paper clutter, and lots of it. From five kids' worth of tests, artwork and calendar reminders to business contracts and receipts and business cards from the last three blogging conferences I've attend, you'll find quite a variety. And that's not even touching on one of the biggest culprits -- my tear file of recipes, decorating ideas, and other articles from all of my favorite magazines.

I have to say that I was rather skeptical about whether one paper management system could tackle such a myriad of clutter, but the NeatDesk system managed to do it all! The NeatDesk scanner and NeatWorks software make scanning and organizing my paper clutter super simple by eliminating most of the data entry and creating searchable PDF files. It's really nothing short of amazing, and while I still have a ways to go in completely decluttering my office, I'm confident that this system is THE ONE I've been searching for for so long.

In fact, the only drawback I've found is that the NeatDesk is a bit pricey at $399.99. They do offer the NeatReceipts product at a smaller price point of $199.99. You still get the awesome NeatWorks software, but the scanner is somewhat less sophisticated. I'd whole-heartedly recommend these products to parents though, as I'm sure we can all use a little extra assistance in the paper clutter department.

I saw this system when it first came out. Can't afford it but sooooo want one to manage the stacks of paperwork I have - both as a freelance writer to organize all my research and writers notes AND for managing family finances, medical and household receipts, etc. This looks like the perfect product to keep tons of paper down to a minimum.
