In addition to the helpful way it allows you to store your clippings it also has some bonus features that have become very addicting to me. There is a section that you can record your books in - whether it be a wish list of books you want to read one day or a list of the books you have read - it could even be both. I am constantly running across books that I am dying to read and then I forget the titles. If you enter them into your Scanalog then you will know right where to find them when you finally have a free moment to catch up on your reading. A similar section for entering catalog info is included as part of your Scanalog. Instead of holding on to bulky catalogs you can enter the item number and the catalog it came from - then when you have some extra spending money or a bday comes up you can find your wishlist in one tidy location.
Perhaps my favorite surprise feature with Scanalog is the journal. I haven't kept a journal since middle school but now that I have this easy to update computer version I have become addicted. I use it to not only jot down thoughts from my day but also to right down memories that pop into my head. It is a great way to record your children's milestones or that silly thing they just did. I love the idea of going back to this as I get older and reading what happened the year before on that same date.
An organized life is a much happier life where I am concerned. I am very thankful to the inventive mother behind Scanalog for giving me a very helpful organizational tool and for freeing me of a great deal of paper.
