That is great about the scanner! I have a Neat scanner which is like this:
So you feed items into it one after another, quick and easy. I keep a bin to toss receipts into and when it fills up I sit on the couch watching TV with Bob and just feed in all the items. They scan to my laptop, auto-sort, auto-file, and it's done. I can then shred all the paperwork and know that I have everything on record.
