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'd use it to organize my personal papers and my husband's business records.

15 Julie August 24, 2011 at 8:55 pm

I would scan in all those CVS and Rite Aide receipts so I could have my records without the giant files of small receipts.

16 Emily August 24, 2011 at 9:10 pm

I would scan all my FSA receipts so I don't lose them before I submit them.

I would use this to keep everything I do in order! I have papers in different envelopes for everything! I am on the board for our pool and have a ton of papers that would be much better off saved on my computer! I would use this for work paperwork along with paperwork that piles up for my son's Cub Scouts and Baseball. On top of all of that I would love to have one of these to keep my personal paperwork in order:) This thing looks awesome and would be put to great use in my house!:)

Thanks!

I'd use it to organize all these loose papers I have around

21 Amanda Y. August 24, 2011 at 9:19 pm

I could get rid of the piles of papers that need to be filed, since filing on a computer is so much quicker!

I'd use it to file my personal records and papers, and clean up a lot of clutter.

33 Heather August 24, 2011 at 9:48 pm

Oh my goodness! I'm so excited to see this as one of your giveaways. My husband's boss just told him he should buy one so he can submit his receipts digitally rather than mail them in to the home office. Unfortunately, there was no offer to purchase it FOR us.... Needless to say, we would use this to make submitting expense reports easier on my husband. I might even try it out myself to eliminate the clutter from all of the calendars and sheets of "important phone numbers" that have come home in the first days of school!

34 Jeremy August 24, 2011 at 9:51 pm

It would sit on my desk and organize my college work.

36 Shirley August 24, 2011 at 9:53 pm

It would be on my desk keeping all my papers in order and knowing that's where I can find something.

40 victoria August 24, 2011 at 10:05 pm

I would LOVE this for school!

41 Olga August 24, 2011 at 10:05 pm

Let me count the ways..!!! First and foremost I would organize my medical files (bills, apptm, follow-ups, meds, ect!)

I would LOVE to win the NeatDesk! I married into a blended family, and we recently got full custody of my FOUR stepkids, ages 7-13! I went from being a single woman to a full time mom, and though I am a great organizer, I have found the task daunting with this many people to take care of! My 4 kids go to 3 different schools and two different school districts, as my youngest is hearing and speech impaired. Please help me win this NeatDesk and give me a LITTLE of my sanity back! :-)

45 Olga August 24, 2011 at 10:07 pm

I receive your feeds!! Thanks sooooo much; this is one of my favorite giveaways...fingers crossed!!!!!! :)

46 Maggie August 24, 2011 at 10:09 pm

I would use it to keep my three kids, or my 200 students organized. Thanks!

47 christina August 24, 2011 at 10:12 pm

I would use this to organize all of our receipts and statements, thanks for the chance.

50 Shelly August 24, 2011 at 10:15 pm

I would use this system since I lost my office space to my little girl. My work/home office was turned into a big girl room and mommy got moved into one cabinet in the kitchen. This would eliminate my stacks of files, kids artwork, and bills.
