We got rid of our filing cabinet a couple years ago, and thanks to merciless decluttering on my part, we have about 4" of documents left (mortgage docs, taxes, etc.).
We also have a photo box full of pictures (well, two, actually, but one is doubles).
Since I got rid of 300 CDs this week, I'm feeling inspired to cut down on this stuff as well, and I've been looking at scanners. I'd like a flat bed that can do paper and photos. (I called a print shop about scanning the stuff for us, and they quoted me a price of $5 PER PAGE! So that's not happening.)
Has anyone else done this? How long did it take you? How much should I spend on the scanner?
My ultimate goal here is to get all of our media "in the cloud" and not have to have shelves and stuff to organize it all, nor multiple hard drives that I have to worry about crashing.
