Online Home Organizer

I am an organizing FREAK. But with all the stuff we have around here, it’s been hard to organize all my organized stuff, you know what I mean? I opened my file cabinet yesterday and was almost buried my the mountain of receipts and product information that spilled out. UGH. I have recently heard of a website called My Things, where you can enter stuff information like serial numbers, stuff from receipts and warranties and term life insurance quotes, product numbers, policy numbers, and more. It’s stored online at the website. I have been wary of things like this- I mean, what if all my information is stolen or lost? What do you think?

Anyway, it’s free to sign up, and there are bonus things at the site, like recall alerts, manuals, and tips. I suppose if you don’t put personal or important financial stuff there, it would be safe. It looks like a great site, and it is free– check it out if you’re interested.

    Thanks for the idea. Maybe I’ll get over being paranoid and try it. Right now I scan all my important things and e-mail them to myself at an address I use only for that.

    mythings.com is an interested site and is good for stuff when you have the patience to re-enter everything and do not need any paper proof.

    There is one more site that I came across recently, http://www.pixily.com which seems to take away the pain of paper clutter. You mail in your documents to them periodically and they scan and make the content in the paper searchable. They seemed to have take all precautions to keep your information safe and secure.

    I am yet to try the service.
