Quick Tip Tuesday: Some Useful Holiday Organizing Tips

We are in the middle of the holiday season. We can all use any tips we can to help the season go smoother.  Here are some useful tips:

1, Clear Plastic Bins are good to keep wrapping supplies. They have them to fit every size and shape. They have long ones for wrapping paper on the rolls to small drawers sets for tape, scissors, tags, ribbons, etc.

2, They have special bins for storing Christmas lights. I just found this out not too long ago. Very helpful in the keeping the lights de-tangled.

3. There are ornament storage boxes too!!

The Fun Stuff About Taxes

Calendar - Tax Day Circled

It’s Tax Season! Yay! Ok, maybe not Yay- worthy but its still tax season.Every April 15th, you’re expected to submit your federal and state tax records from the previous year. That means you are expected to keep all items needed for your tax returns.  And After April 15th, the IRS (internal Revenue Service) suggests to keep all of these records for at least three years. Some tax folks say to keep your tax records for seven years. Either way you need to organize and then find a place for this stuff.

I suggest good old fashioned boxes or plastic containers that are all the same size. They even have decorative ones that match your decor. Stack them in a corner in the closet. Stack them in a corner in the basement.  You can even cover them with a nice fabric and put a plant on top. Stack them high on a shelf in the home office. Label each one by year. and every year, shred the content of the oldest box (which should be on the bottom) and relabel and put the current year in there and place on top. AND the shredded papers (cross-cut is the best) can be used for packing material. So you are recycling too. 

Good luck to everyone this tax season!
