Give this method of organizing documents a try--it will do wonders for your drawers, put files right at your fingertips, and make future organization so much easier. And, because you're using a device you always have on you, it's super easy.
1. Create a Dropbox Account
If you don't already have it, download Dropbox now. It's the best way to store all your important files on the cloud, and it's totally free. In your Dropbox folder, create a folder for important documents. While you're at it, create sub-folders for any important documents you regularly keep track of--bills, receipts, work--however it makes sense for you to organize them.
2. Download TurboScan
TurboScan is an amazingly useful app that allows you to scan and save images, and it's only $1.99. It uses your iPhone's camera to take pictures of your files, and automatically adjusts the lighting and contrast of the image to get the clearest text possible. It also allows you to save files in PDF format, e-mail them to yourself, or save them to Dropbox. TurboScan will allow you to open your saved files in any application that supports PDFs--including apps like Dropbox and Evernote. If you open an image in Dropbox, it will allow you to save the document to the folder you created in step 1.
