Taxes Are Only Fun When Cake Is Involved

Oh, Hey! Just doing taxes. Tallying receipts and adding them all up. I do it the “old school” way. Throughout the year I save every single receipt, every single invoice, every single statement and then categorize them at the end of the year during tax time. It’s a leeeetle bit tedious, and it makes me what to never spend money on anything again. At. All. That’s why I waited until tonight to do this part. I’m sure there is an easier and less painful way but I like to torture myself so I do it this way. I kept putting it off and making big sighs and then asked my husband to get me some chocolate cake.

Taxes with chocolate cake is, I’ve officially decided, the ONLY way to do taxes.

That may look like a lot of receipts/statements/paper for someone who did a Spending Fast in 2010 but I assure you it’s a million times less than 2009’s. For real. For really.

So, I bid you adieu for now and happy tax season.

    I whole heartedly agree that chocolate (in any form) makes unpleasant tasks better! I love your blog, inspires me to be a bit more frugal, which is always a good thing ;)

    That scene looks soooo familiar – papers in piles everywhere. I wish I were more organized so come tax time I wouldn't get my panties in such a wad. I'm more a carrot cake kinda gal . . . do you think it will have the same calming effect? Esp. with the cream cheese icing on top?

    I think so, too. Going to have to stop at the bakery tomorrow morning because I plan to root through my tax papers in the afternoon. Wish me luck!

    I used to do this same thing — I found it interesting to review the year and see where I 'blew' all of our money. Now I'm saving receipts and logging them in as I get them. I'm keeping a tighter rein on my dollars and trying to work off some of my foolish spending.
