About a half-year later and things are still going well. I scan all my receipts and then recycle the originals. So far I've never had an issue with someone not accepting the copy of the receipt which I can print out.
It definitely ends up with less paper. I used to have to keep all these receipts for tax purposes. Now all the paper leaves the house and I just have files on my hard drive.
I do have a portable rubbermaid style box full of "to do" papers, old winery visit notes, all sorts of notes that I mean to write up someday. So at some point I should sit down with even one of the folders and make progress on that.
Still, the receipt scanner was / is a huge help and the paper pile is being tamed.
