Well, I am into collecting papers for NEXT year's taxes. I worked up numbers and copies regarding those lots we sold. I imagine that will trigger some capitol gains tax, plus the title company said they would be sending a 1098 (is that number right?) for the amount we collected. I also copied all the spreadsheets from last year, deleted the contents and got them started for next year. I have the first 3 months done so far.
Set up a bankers box with hanging folders for the dining room table project, got everything sorted and separated into categories. A plastic box would be better, smoother to move the folders about, but this is cheaper. Also, I was thinking down the road when a lot of stuff will be put into these cardboard boxes and stored OUT OF THE HOUSE, out of sight somewhere permanent. I am glad I had a box of assorted color legal size hanging folders to use...I used all the purple ones and 1 green one when I ran out of those.
I have another box to set up for another big project and I will use another color so when my disorganized DH takes the folders out of the boxes and leaves them out and about all over the house I will be able to tell at a glance which box it goes back into.
It is wonderful to get my dining room table back.
Ah, the picture looks more like the kitchen table where DH stacks stuff. I use the little file hanging box I bought for his church things, but I am the one who files stuff away..and those little files are stuffed pretty full.
One project is still scattered on the living room couch. That has been on my mind. I need to organize that when DH brings back a signed paper (I remind him daily of that). This one's been a thorn in my side for 6 years or so... I didn't take the courses that tell of the requirements, so I've tried to ferret out the information. DH took the courses, but asking him to set up a system is like speaking Greek. I'm just not sure what to do, so I've never tackled it beyond a little bit. I always pray the agency in charge of this information never ask for any of it.
