Household solution required.

I want a paperless house !!
Consequently, I want to scan AND index all important documents. Perhaps a few hundred at most but growing each year.

WHat sort of cheap software package should I get ??   Any tips??

Have you tried Microsoft OneNote 2010? It's not specific just for scan but you can organize it very easy (creating sections and pages) and it allows you to search on the text of the scanned files.
