I so want to justify getting one, but honestly, I don't get all that much paperwork and I only handle it once to process and file and sometimes once again at tax time. I can't justify scanning it all in. All my bills are sent direct to Paytrust (not me), so I never even see that paperwork.

If I ever get the guts to destroy my last few cookbooks to scan them quickly, then I might buy one. It may happen -- I hired a firm a few years ago to digitize 700 CDs and haven't touched the physical CDs since. The few books left that I use may join the party someday. It's so weird. I used to have thousands of books (and hundreds of cookbooks) -- bookcases lining every spare wall space -- I dreamed of a house with a library as a kid. Now they sit in boxes waiting for me to sort and sell/donate.
