To Shred or Not to Shred
Too much paper makes everyone crazy and I’m no exception.
Today I’m going through all my paper files to pull out everything that can be tossed, scanned, and/or shredded.
I’m committed to moving less paper out of this apt than I moved in with.
I’ll be on the lookout for anything I can find online and bookmark or download and file digitally.
I’ll also be looking for things I saved for old projects or as resources and scan those as well.
Remember, size does matter:
1 Megabyte = one small novel
1 Gigabyte = a pickup truck filled with paper
1 Terabyte = all the X-ray films in a large hospital OR 50,000 trees made into paper
10 Terabytes = the printed collection of the US Library of Congress
20 Petabytes = the amount of data processed by Google … per day
What kinds of paper are you holding onto that could easily be scanned and kept digitally?
