Maximize Your Space with Neat

August 5th, 2013

Whether it’s the home office or the attic, you probably have at least one room in your home that seems tight on space, even after choosing the right storage tools or different furniture.  However, those filing cabinets, storage bins, shoeboxes and “junk” drawers stuffed with paper usually take up the most space and provide minimal organization help.

Facing this problem in my own home, my wife and I decided to digitize all of our household documents, important information, and memorable pieces of paper to eliminate the need for our old filing cabinets. Let me be the first to say, I was astounded by how much space we gained around the house from digitizing so much paper!  Now, my wife and I use the extra space to store other household items—like cleaning supplies or our kids’ sports equipment—and if we need to find essential documents or compile information for tax time, it’s all archived and easy to find in Neat’s Digital Filing System.

If you’re reorganizing the cramped storage areas and rooms in your home, here are some tips on how to get rid of the clutter and space consumed by accumulating paper:

  • If you have a home office with multiple filing cabinets and stacks of important paperwork you can’t bear to discard, digitally archive your essential documents to not only free up space, but provide you with a more effective, productive way to organize your work.
  • Saving favorite recipes, family histories, your children’s artwork, or even old letters from friends and family with Neat provides a great way to keep those items with sentimental value without unnecessary clutter.
  • Scan your financial statements, bills, invoices, and receipts so you don’t have to keep the originals stacked in file folders or shoeboxes.
  • During the school year, scan the flyers and information your children bring home from school and activities instead of piling them on the kitchen table where they can easily be misplaced.

Without the hassle of trying to manage and store paper, you’ll be amazed by how much extra space you can gain in your home and how easy it is to find the information you need when you need it with Neat’s Digital Filing System.


Until Next Time…Keep it Neat!

Smart Organizing at NAPO 2013

April 26th, 2013

Last week my team and I boarded a plane and traveled down to New Orleans to attend the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) Annual Conference and Organizing Expo. Attending the NAPO Expo is a natural fit for Neat because we, like the many professional organizers in attendance, want to help people simplify their lives so they can be more organized and productive.

Besides the fact that we got to spend some quality time in New Orleans, this year’s Expo was particularly exciting. We hosted a special speaking session devoted to Digital Filing Systems, and NeatDesk was selected as NAPO’s Best Solution for Organizing Information at Work.

During our Smart Organizing session, which we hosted with Neat Fleeters Joshua Zerkel and Bonnie Dewkett, the pesky Paper Monster made an appearance!  He stirred up quite the response from the professional organizers in attendance, and a local Philly-area organizer, Darla DeMorrow, was able to catch him on film. Check him out here.

We had a great time at the NAPO Expo and loved getting to spend time talking with all of the professional organizers. My bags are already packed for next year’s conference and expo in Arizona!
