This weekend I didn’t do anything really DIY cool. Nor did I venture out much. It was head to the grindstone tax time in my office.
I was behind. Like, lots. I hadn’t even organized many of my receipts yet. After dumping out my purse including all the piles accumulated in boxes, I dove in.
Ah… here’s a tiny little decorating thing to share… I had this neat old round drop leaf table that I scooted over to my desk for extra room and it’s staying! Love it! When my room is
receipt free clean, I’ll do a shoot and show you around abit more.
Anyway, I have a relatively easy system, thanks to the help of others. What I basically do is divide my work receipts up by the month.
The sticky notes have the month and it’s number written on them. This saved me from counting fingers hundreds of times over. Don’t ask. 🙂
Vent… every receipt ought to read Dec 7 2011, not 12 7 2011 or 2011 12 7 or 11 7 12. Ya know?!
From there, the receipts get documented against the bank statement. Once everything is in order, they get plunked into monthly file folders, waiting for my bookeeper to arrive.
She’s got my system down. I don’t see her until year end. It takes her two days to enter everything in the accounting program for the entire year. Then it gets shipped to the accountant.
I’m not nitpicky about every dollar in and out at every given minute, that’s why this lazy train system works for me. I enter my customer’s invoices and payments as they come which seems to do the trick ok.
I’m just really blessed to have an affordable friend that knows her stuff.
And know what? I got it all done! From Jan to Dec. My stalling was keeping me up at night so I needed to clip this one.
Monday, I head out to letter up one last truck, then my son and I are kicking the week off for spring break! Our weather is cold and rainy so not sure what we’ll do. But it doesn’t much matter… as long as it doesn’t involve paper confetti. 🙂
Are you done with your paper shuffle yet?
