Scanalog WFMW and a Giveaway!


I am in love!!! I am a pack rat. I try to dress it up but it boils down to I can't get rid of anything and especially information. I have a file box of clipped articles from various magazines, wait I HAD! With Scanalog all you need is a scanner and it can help you handle the rest. This boils down to a filing system for all those bits of paper you collect with the plan to use in the future. You can use this software in a couple of ways: either scan straight into it or pull saved images off your hard drive. Then you can "file" all of them into either the provided categories (11 Master Categories and 102 subcategories) or make some of your own. I like that you can add categories because I had to add some for homeschooling art projects and folder games that I see out on the web. I am even thinking about using it for the kids' completed projects (since I already do pictures).

Now it does cost a little money, $49.95, but I think it could be worth it. I have said for at least 10 years that I need to find a way to write a database with images and I haven't. Even if I did, it would take hours. At $49.95, it is a bargain of time, sanity and money.

The 1 drawback.... When you move your mouse over the top bar (you can see it in the picture) it makes a clicking noise that you can't turn off.

So if you are a pack rat too, or just like keeping all the information that goes through you fingers (that sounds better doesn't it;) go check out all Scanalog has to offer!!!! Tell them that NerdFamily Things sent you!

Like you, I have TONS of magazines and magazine articles that I plan to file SOMEDAY. This would be a great way to finally get it all organized. We are buying a house in April and if I can get rid of my magazine/article stash before we move that would be wonderful!

I think the feature that I would like the best is being able to catalog all of the craft ideas and instructions that I have. I have tons of magazines just because they have craft ideas/patterns on a couple of pages.
