Ask and ye shall receive…

…answers, that is.

So while I’m not done with this nightmare desk cleaning job (hey, it took a lot longer than 2 days for it to get like this!), I had a thought that I kept coming back to… what would it take for me to digitize all these paper bills I have filed away?

I’m a little old school about my bills. Even though I pay them online, I still like to get my bills mailed to me. I can make my notes on them and then I file them (well, once in a while I file them). I worry that if I start getting my bills online I’ll forget to pay them. And the last thing I want to do is to have to print bills out just to remind myself to pay them.

Anyway, I have all these paper bills that I’d like to keep a copy of. I was thinking I could scan the bills to pdf and finally feel OK about shredding/recycling everything. Except that my current all-in-one scanner/printer/copier/fax doesn’t scan to PDF. It scans to .jpg or .tif or some other unweildy file format.

So in the middle of all my cleaning yesterday, I took a few minutes to IM Chris Pirillo to pick his brain for a solution. What I didn’t realize is that he was in the middle of doing his show when I IMed him. He asked me if I wanted to call in, but if I did that Yoshi would catch me “goofing off” (not cleaning) and I didn’t want to get in trouble for that. But he was nice enough to make a post about my problem anyway… and get coupon codes for the products he found!

Anyway, thanks to Chris, I have a couple of possibilities to investigate. Thanks, Chris!
