“Oh Happy Days”!  Tax Prep Time 

“Oh Happy Days”.  Tax prep time is here! (OH NO 🤪 Ugh.) As a Owner of a Home Based Business(s)it is a real “pain”.  If you also have a business you and I understand each other and how complicated tax time can be. Trying to keep all those papers documents etc. in an orderly fashion, yeah right!

I think it’s a good thing that text preparation time comes during the winter, it’s snowing out the wind is blowing and snow is drifting. Not much else you can do, so I’ll grab a cuppa coffee and do a little bit of organizing and filing. Come and join me….

Organization is KEY, but things seem to happen all year and all that organization goes out the window. I know it does  for me and then the stress levels go up. Boring! But once it’s done it’s so gratifying, don’t you think? So it’s back to Organization 101, what could I do better and what do I need to get rid of that is keeping me from being organized. First of all Supplies (Office, Desk, Filing) are a MUST!

SUPPLIES FOR ORGANIZATION

To work on organizing my receipts for tax time, I make a trip to Get Supplies that are needed.

I Set up a filing system (in a used file cabinet from Marketplace- it was a still for $20). For the to day Business stuff, so that I can be mobile (Office/Couch/Chair) 🤣,  I started using the “coolest” mobile filing cabinet.

 It is a: HOME DISTRICT Chic File Folder Organizer

Easy to set up and big enough for daily, weekly and Monthly files and filing.  It was not too expensive either.  

TIME SAVER TIP:

Try to keep Records for each Expense as soon as possible. I find that I set aside a short period of time late in Afternoon to file all my receipts. This entails me running around looking for them as well.  [belly laugh]

I do keep a Excel spreadsheet and eventually will probably use software program like QUICKEN Quick Books.
