If you have a bulk of physical documents or books lying around taking up precious space, you could scan them and then recycle them. But the manual scanning is quite time-consuming. Here to take care of this for you is a service called 1DollarScan.

digitize paper documents

1DollarScan is a new service that digitizes your documents for you. You can snail mail your documents, books, greeting cards, and business cards to 1DollarScan and the service scans and digitizes them for you for only $1. You are charged $1 per 10 business documents, 10 business cards, 100 book pages, 10 photographs, or 1 greeting card.
