National Association of Professional Organizers estimates that we never look at 80% of the papers after seeing them for the first time. Sorting through the existing paper you have at home or in your office.
Digitize documents that you must keep
Digitize documents such as bills, receipt, tax records. Scan papers with a mobile or desktop scanner
and store them as PDFs electronically on a computer hard drive or cloud storage.
You may sometimes receive an email with an attached document you need to sign
and then send back. Create an electronic signature with an E-signature tool.
To collect signatures from yourself and others,
consider signing up for a digital signature service.
Promote the use of easily shareable file formats like (PDFs),
move to electronic banking and online invoicing,
and replace paper forms with fillable electronic form,
all of which make it easier to rely less on paper.
