You may be scrambling around trying to find all of your paperwork for your 2011 taxes. Why not plan ahead for next year’s taxes now. I’m sure you already have paperwork coming at you that you have to keep for 2012. It’s not too early to determine a home for your 2012 receipts to live in for the year.
The 13-pocket expanding file is one of my all-time favorite organizing products. And it’s so inexpensive on top of that! Simply file your receipts by vendor – Target, Office Max, etc. If you enter your receipts into an accounting program throughout the year, simply file them in this great accordion file after you’ve entered them. Stick a label on the front identifying what year they are for and you can quickly find the information at any time.
