The thought crossed my mind to go out for Hot Wings last night in an effort to clear up my spring cold.
Then after I got off the couch from an afternoon of sleeping, I decided I better get looking for all the documents for income tax time.
HOLY COW! My apartment is a mess with papers everywhere and loads of recycling.
Spring cleaning is in full swing now, just in time for company this week. Clear the decks for a new year.
Not only have I discovered lots of receipts from donations but I have found photos, ticket stubs, lottery tickets, newspaper clippings, PIN numbers! My gawd! The key is to toss stuff as it comes into your environment, not keeping it, as I apparently do!
Generally, my receipts and anything I need for income tax purposes are put together as soon as I receive them! I had a red flag this year with a certain investment, to which I thought “OH NO YOU DON’T”! Keeping all those pieces of paper and documents might just work in my favor.
I hate doing my income tax and over the years have been pretty lucky to have invested through the year to get returns. Sometimes you have to pay the man, this could be one of those years but I’m not going to lose sleep over it.
Good Luck to you It’s E-FILE TIME!!!
