I spent much of the day getting the house in order. After two quick trips and a pile up of work things built up to a point where I couldn't take it anymore. In the process I've found a mint of change which will be snowflakes once I get them to the bank. I also found some mystery shopping receipts that I'd faxed but never went through.
One big change I'm making this year has to do with organization. When I started my takes I realized that I didn't have a few things I could have written off as buisness deductions. This year I want to keep better track of milage and receipts so next tax season will be easier and perhaps more lucrative.
Finally, I'm glad I showed some restraint the other day with the window plastic. It's 30 degrees and sleeting. Looking at our electric bills for the last few months we've used significanly less energy. The higher fuel prices equal higher bills despite the reduced usage. So every day with the plastic up helps.
