    I am in grad school right now and this scanner will definitely make my life a lot easier as I have to scan group papers and notes to my fellow cohorts.

  2. kayla leadman December 10, 2014 at 7:25 am -

    Instead of having a pile of bills laying around which drives me crazy along with recipes this will help organize my life and my husbands business.

  3. Shirley Smith December 10, 2014 at 7:47 am -

    This would so help out my Husband to simplify our lives by keeping all of our important information handy in one place. And it would so nice to be able to give up all the little plastic shoe boxes we keep our papers in now.

  4. Catherine Robb-Husen December 10, 2014 at 8:03 am -

    It would reduce tons of paprwork, and make room in my closet.

  5. Kat Meller December 10, 2014 at 8:32 am -

    As an accountant who does taxes – this would be an awesome addition to my desk!

  6. ronda peyton December 10, 2014 at 8:45 am -

    i would be able to easy file my papers online and find them quickly and they would take up less space

  7. Cokie Evans December 10, 2014 at 8:58 am -

    I have no room for paperwork, I keep trying to find ways to file paperwork and keep it close by since I get a lot of paperwork from my son’s disability. I seem to be always looking for something and the only place I have to store files is in an upstairs bedroom that is very inconvenient. This would simplify my life by allowing me to store the paperwork I need to keep but don’t necessarily need the hard copies of. Space wise that would be immense and also the time spent filing paperwork, sorting what I need and what I don’t and would just allow me to print off a page that I might need instead of having to sort through a whole file full then making copies. The time saved plus space would be enormous! I keep looking at them but just never can justify the money spent when it’s needed elsewhere.

  8. Catherine Wooster December 10, 2014 at 9:05 am -

    This would be great for my daughter,who will be going to college this coming year!

  9. Amber December 10, 2014 at 9:32 am -

  10. Craig McLarty December 10, 2014 at 9:32 am -

  20. writerlady December 10, 2014 at 1:45 pm -

    My husband would LOVE this – he is always surrounded by receipts and bills and documents that he has to stop, go downstairs and scan onto a flash drive, carry upstairs, load onto his computer and put into the right format, then save. What a lot easier it would be for him to have this scanner.

  21. Sarah VM December 10, 2014 at 1:52 pm -

    This would be awesome for my family. We constantly have receipts laying all over the place. It would be so easy to just scan them in and get rid of them.

  22. Mary Mudd December 10, 2014 at 2:54 pm -

    It will save me from having to run to the library, every time I need something done. It will save me money, and patience.

    This would simplify my life because it would help me get rid of all the paper and receipts and it would also help me with my budget.

  26. Julie L December 10, 2014 at 6:22 pm -

    This will keep all our important documents saved and scanned!

  27. Nora T December 10, 2014 at 6:57 pm -

    I am painfully unorganized…I always lose receipts and other documents, no matter how I try to organize.This sounds like my last ditch attempt!

  28. Tina Wylie December 10, 2014 at 7:34 pm -

    It would make organizing the boxes of papers I have stored easier. Right now I would have to sift threw a year of papers to find a single item.

  29. MaryJo Tsitouris December 10, 2014 at 11:11 pm -

    I can honestly say, I consider paperwork as my enemy! Currently, I have a box of papers that I toss everything into that I do not want to just throw away. Everybody who knows me, knows how I feel about my box. My son even drew a picture of an ugly green monster on it to symbolize my “fear” of going through all the papers inside! True story! ha ha! 😉

  30. Barbara Adams December 11, 2014 at 1:37 am -

    Just movrd, and the basics are put away in their proper places, but I have boxes of”important” papers that will take months to make sense of..had I know such a product existed, life might have been a bit more finding the car title O need, my son’s discharge papers, etc….

  31. Ashley C December 11, 2014 at 2:01 am -

    I so need this in my life! It’d help to clean up my office area and get rid of all the papers that are all over the floor an desks.

  32. Jenifer R. December 11, 2014 at 6:46 am -

    My husband travels every week with his job and he has to save all of his travel receipts. This would be great for him! No more lost unpaid receipts!

  33. TechFreaksHD December 11, 2014 at 7:19 am -

    I Print things for college almost on daily basis and this will be an amazing replacement of my crappy old printer!everything else is just a bonus 🙂

  34. michelle oakley warner December 11, 2014 at 7:42 am -

    omg, my husband and i have a deli and we have to go through each reciept every month, its a crappy job, so this would make it so easy by just scanning it and it puts it all in one place for you. awesome

  35. Julia V December 11, 2014 at 3:07 pm -

    My husband would LOVE this, we were just talking about this the other day! He would use it to scan in receipts and bills, which would make life easier for both of us, because we wouldn’t have all that paper junk taking up space around the house anymore!

  36. crystal sheckles-gibson December 12, 2014 at 2:17 am -

    My husband is a self employed contractor so we have to keep up with all his expenses but taxes. This would make everything so much easier.

  37. kath g December 12, 2014 at 2:39 am -

    If I could get rid of all the paper in my life it wouldn’t only simplify my life, it would empty so many drawers and files, it would organize everything, save me so much time, and I wouldn’t ever have to search all over for a piece of paper again.

  38. Danielle December 12, 2014 at 11:40 am -

    I’m working on a blog with my best friend, and do a lot of my work with pen and paper! This would make it so much easier to share what I have with her instead of having to retype it all!

  39. Beanybopp December 12, 2014 at 2:54 pm -

    It would make my life easier by clearing up the 6 different filing carriers I have for paperwork!! I keep 5 years of things like bills and all just in case…it would be so nice to have them digital instead.

  40. Sharon Shepherd December 12, 2014 at 8:02 pm -

    Would help me finally get organized with all my receipts and magazine recipes.

  41. bluecat731 December 13, 2014 at 1:14 am -

    I could finally get rid of so many craft magazines by scanning the projects I want.

  42. Laurie Nykaza December 13, 2014 at 5:34 am -

    My son had a heart transplant and my daughter had cancer so we have so many papers to file with their medical . I would love to have it all on here.
