With that said, my house will look like this on Christmas morning…..
In my post last week I talked about gifts and how much is the right amount to spend on the kiddos. Do they need to get the same amount of presents? Well, it got me to thinking. How are we paying for all of this?? LOL! Seems as though the holidays are costly no matter how much you spend. Not many people have extra spending money these days.
After the holidays, I always look forward to the new year when we do our taxes. Just like most of the population, there are years we have to pay and years when we get some money back. Of course I want to get money back to help pay off the Christmas bills! I always call our accountant right after the holidays to schedule an appointment. But although I think I call early enough, we sometimes don’t get in with him until right before tax day.
It made me think that it could be time to try to do our taxes on our own. This way we can do it when we want. And just in case we need an e-file tax extension! I know a lot of people who go this route and it seems to work well for them. Regardless, I guess it needs to get done one way or another, right? LOL!
Happy Turkey Day!
