The best scanner to clean up paper clutter

Submitted by 2 Comments

I’ve had papers all over my house for a long time. My file cabinets were overflowing and I had piles of paper everywhere. I had papers in my bedroom, the kitchen, Butler pantry, dining room, family room, living room and even the stairs! It was time to do something about it and I did.

I got a document scanner that is so easy to use and fast that I have been scanning hundreds of pages every day. I started with one pile and got through it so fast that I did another pile. I’ve been scanning another pile or two every day and while I still have a lot more to do, in just two weeks my house is much cleaner.

I got the Canon 220P scanner. This is the best scanner for home or office. The scanner is made for office use, but for people who can afford the cost (MSRP $2,195), the unique features available only on this scanner make it ideal for use at home.

Without going into too much detail here, this scanner is fast (26 pages per minute) and extremely easy to use. Because it’s so easy to use with its on-screen buttons, it makes scanning even faster. For those who like pretty high-tech looking gadgets, the 8.5 inch color screen is very pretty and makes this scanner look good anywhere in your house. Additionally, it has a very small footprint, taking up as much room as a small fax machine and less than a DVD player.

You can easily create many labeled on-screen buttons in different colors to provide simple one touch scanning that you can use on the 8.5 inch color touch screen. The on-screen buttons make scanning much faster because you can press one button on the scanner to scan papers in color, grayscale or black-and-white in different resolutions and for either one-sided or two-sided papers.

Without using one touch on-screen buttons, I would have to first go to my computer to access the scanner software and choose the desired resolution and color to scan the paper. The on-screen buttons allow me to scan any paper in different ways without going to my computer each time I scan. The on-screen buttons make scanning extremely easy and a considerable time saver.

The Canon 220P scanner will also scan two-sided documents in one pass because it has two scanners. Additionally, it is inexpensive to use and maintenance is a snap. There is only one inexpensive roller to replace. The roller lasts for 30,000 scans and is as easy and quick to replace as a battery.

Another advantage of cleaning up my house is that I can now easily find scanned documents and the papers that are important to me are now safe and backed up online. You can now automatically back up your papers and files online for free. There is absolutely no catch, except that free accounts are limited to 2 GB storage. This is more than enough storage to backup all of your documents and even a lot of pictures. Open a FREE online backup account which even includes e-mail support!
