Because even nice file cabinets are still kind of ugly. Can you imagine a paperless, or even just a paper- reduced, office? It can be a tough concept to envision because, as small business owners, we are inundated with paper. Brochures, business cards, client files, bills, contracts, owner's manuals, warranties, permits, licenses, insurance policies, tax returns, and on and on and on. So. Much. Paper!

Even if you're firmly in the "I'll always use paper for my client charts!" camp, read on. We've got plenty of other ways you can reduce the paper in your business.
