    Thanks! I happened to come across your article last night and downloaded the scanner pro. Now the fun part of how to scan and save into different categories! I didn’t know we can do books as well!
    Thank you so much! Hoping to become paper free by the end of this year

  2. Wow, thank you for this post! I really was wondering if I could do something right now and I’m happy to see I can start by becoming paper free!

    Thank you!

  3. You said “Update – the pre-installed notes app on iOS 11 can now scan documents.”
    I have iOS 12. I checked the notes app on my iPhone, and couldn’t locate any scanning function on it. It doesn’t appear to exist anywhere in that app. I have iPhone SE. So I’ve given up on the notes app for scanning. Because you recommended Scanner Pro, I went ahead and installed that app on my iPhone. Thanks for the suggestion.

    1. Thanks for the heads up, Eric! Your comment prompted me to update this post and refresh the references. Glad you’re getting value out of Scanner Pro!

    2. Try starting a new note. Click on the camera icon. Then you will see option to scan.

  4. Great post ! I rarely who talk about this topic, most of them all just talking about Home only. Although I’m minimalist also.

  5. Thanks for your post! I have been trying to finish going paperless for a while… Too many interruptions and I never finish! Question for you – do you ever worry about putting all those important documents in the cloud? I would love to do that, but how safe is it? I would hate for identifying information to get stolen??

    1. Hi Jamie, apologies, I only just saw your comment. I personally don’t have a problem with storing docs in the cloud as it’s no different to how our emails are stored on servers with just as much if not more crucial information. I have reason to believe that these tech companies are trying to top each other with how good their cybersecurity is. If anything, it comes down to the user and how they manage their passwords.

  6. Hi Amber, glad you enjoyed the post. It really is a great app which has totally changed the way we live. Happy decluttering!
