Why store it when you can scan it?

November 2, 2010

No wonder the show Hoarders is so popular right now. Turns out there’s a little keeper in all of us. According to the new book What's Mine is Yours: The Rise of Collaborative Consumption, there are more than 53,000 personal storage facilities in the U.S. – more than seven times the number of Starbucks.

About 30% of the storage boom comes from businesses storing things like payment records, office equipment, and inventory.

The cost?

On average $99 – $195 a month.

That’s a whole lot of square footage eating away at your bottom line. If you’re a Bill.com customer, you can minimize costs like these. How? By taking advantage of your digital filing cabinet. It’s unlimited. Just email or upload Word, Excel, PDF, PowerPoint, image files, or even plain text emails to us, then file them however you like online. They don’t even have to be work-related. You can set up personal files (that you control) for a screenplay you’re writing, personal tax returns, your college thesis, your wedding photos – anything at all.

So the next time you drive past a storage facility, smile! You’re not letting boxes of stuff box you into a $99-a-month corner.

    Keep up the good work– and to the Cons who are complaining, you really need to work a little harder at reading comprehension.
