Your smartphone’s camera is your greatest ally when it comes to saving space and reducing paper clutter. Many companies photograph or scan items such as receipts, canceled checks, and other documents, and then store the digital version in a cloud-based receptacle — such as Dropbox, Mozy, Microsoft OneDrive, Apple iDrive, or Google Drive — for easy access. After the paper document is converted to digital, the original can be shredded or recycled. A smartphone photo can capture the information on business cards of a new prospect and immediately feed it into an electronic organizer on that same phone.
