Simplfy your life and business with Shoeboxed.com

I love to craft, spend time with my family (especially the Grandbabies!) and blog about it...but one thing that I DON'T like to do, but it is necessary, is keep track of business and personal finances.

Whether it's paying a bill, filing a invoice or doing my taxes...if it has to do with money or filing...I'm not a fan!

Fortunately, I've discovered a great way to cut down on the amount of time I spend doing those things and it is a great site called www.Shoeboxed.com!

I simply gather my receipts and mail them in a prepaid envelope to Shoeboxed and they scan and store them securely online for easy access anytime!

If you have the Classic Plan or higher, they will return your paper receipts to you if you'd like, but if you are into a "greener" solution they will shred and recycle them within 30 days of scanning them.

I have been trying to reduce the "clutter" in my life and this service is a great way to start doing that.

You can also upload the documents yourself using a scanner, smartphone or tablet.

In addition to receipts, you can scan invoices and mail a copy to your customers and you can even scan in business cards to keep track of your contacts and clients for your business!

Shoeboxed keeps it all organized for you and even puts your receipts into 15 tax categories. (You can always go in and change or customize these how you like).

This is SO helpful when tax time rolls around...which incidentally that dreaded deadline is creeping up on us!

(I really love this feature, as I typically just throw my receipts into a literal "shoe box" with no organization whatsoever!)

In addition to all the great features I've mentioned above, Shoeboxed integrates with some of the most popular applications like Quickbooks, Evernote and MYOB just to name a few.

I have been using Shoeboxed for almost a year now and have been very pleased with the service.

I initially had a lot of receipts so I used the mail-in service to get caught up and now I use my iPhone Shoeboxed app to scan receipts on the go!

The desktop uploader is great also, especially when I have a group of receipts...I can scan receipts on my scanner and then drag and drop them to my shoeboxed app on my desktop and they auto upload!

www.Shoeboxed.com offers several plans starting with a DIY forever free plan up to an Executive Plan,  to see their pricing structure click on the link above or in the ad in my sidebar.

If you have been looking for an easier business filing system or just a way to better organize your personal finances, secure your receipts now at Shoeboxed.com.
