Paperless, updated... About six weeks ago, I posted about our adventure in switching to paperless records storage. We've just gone over 100 documents filed this way, with about 250 pages total. As I gain familiarity with the system, it just gets easier and easier to use. I've started using folders in DevonThink to organize the information, but only in a very high-level way (for instance, all of our financial records are in a single folder). I've started to routine scan manuals and instruction sheets (it's so easy!), not because they take up so much room, but because by being scanned they're so easy to search. Very, very convenient.
So just in case you were wondering whether we still thought going paperless (as Helen W. asked by email yesterday) was a win ... the answer is “Hell, yes!”
