Many of us are planning for the holidays and looking forward to some downtime after a busy fall. Great idea. What’s top of your list when you get back to the office in January?
With a little forward planning, by the time you get to April, you’ll be focussed on those new clients having signed off and sent off your annual tax return. If you are still working on a paper-based system, consider booking time with yourself in your 2012 calendar, before it gets booked with client appointments, to sort the receipts.
An accordion file makes a great receptacle. With 13 pockets it can stand on a shelf, in a file drawer and be labelled by month to receive receipts, invoices and any other relevant paperwork.
