Belle Tips: Tax Organization (It's Tax Day)

Belle tips, Organization, Home Life, ProductivityHolly WilsonComment

Hey Belle Hey-

WHAT DAY IS IT?

Blog2.jpg

TAX DAY

Yep…I Said it… I am proud to say that I am ahead of the game and to ensure that I stay ahead I’m giving you a peak at how I organize my tax items through the year. As a business owner, home owner, etc. making sure that you keep everything in one place is essential.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  1. 3-prong folder (I use this instead of a binder to make storing it in my file cabinet less bulky)

  2. Tabbed Dividers

  3. Pocket Protectors

  4. A Label Maker (I use the Dymo Label Maker)

  5. A Calculator

Each year I label the folder with the tax year and then I label each tab for things I need to keep up with throughout the year.

Blog6.jpg

Inside of the folder I have a section for Business Receipts and my Business Spreadsheet. I have a section for charitable giving and this year I will have a section form moving. In the past I’ve had a section for school expenses….I highly recommend meeting with a tax specialist/accountant to discuss expenses you should track throughout the year if you itemize your taxes.

Once I have my labels made I slip one/two pocket proctors behind each tabbed section to make sure that I have a space to store the necessary documents . Also, having this folder set up early makes sure that you stick to a plan because all you have to do is place the paperwork where it goes.

Belle Tips: Spring is Springing (Succlent Tips)

Belle tips, Home Life, DIY, EntertainingHolly WilsonComment

Hey Belle Hey-

Spring is almost here and I don’t know about you but the PGP Squad is so ready for it. One of my favorite things about spring is watching new flowers begin to sprout. In the PGP office we have a new spring plant obsession…SUCCULENTS- keep reading for our tips in caring for such lovely greenery.

Blog2.jpg

Belle Tip 1: Find the right pot- Succulents are such lovely plants and you don’t want the pot to overshadow it’s simple elegance. We have one succulent in a tea cup that we love and used our Cricut to make some pots out of acrylic and E600 glue that you can get at your local craft store.

Belle Tip 2: Don’t forget the rocks- Succulents are such a lovely plant and adding rocks not only keeps them from being over watered but it adds beauty to your pot design.

Belle Tip 3: Be Gentle- I had to learn this the hard way….make sure when you are moving your plants that you are as gentle as can be to preserve the petals.

Belle Tips: Moving Out and Moving In

Belle tips, Home Life, OrganizationHolly WilsonComment

Hey Belle Hey-

It’s been a little quiet on the blog but for a good reason…I got a home

I’m so excited to have the opportunity to decorate and humbled and blessed to build a house from the ground up.

Let me tell you…if you have ever moved in your life it is NO JOKE!!! Keep reading for some of the things I did to make sure this move was as fabulous as possible.

  1. LABEL YOUR BOXES- I needed to find a document really quickly that I had packed away and labeling my boxes made it such an ease. I was able to find the item and reseal the box in a timely manner.

  2. MAKE A MOVING FILE FOLDER- What….I am all about organization and making a folder or binder with all of your purchases during the move can help you when you go to file your taxes or need to remember when the moving truck is scheduled to arrive.

  3. TAKE A PAUSE- Moving is not for the faint at heart. Don’t forget to schedule some time for self-care to make sure you are ready for your big move.

  4. PAY ATTENTION TO THE DETAILS- This is very important when purchasing or building a home. You need to read and re-read about warranties, attend inspection meetings, closing meetings, and ask questions…remember different loans require different demands.

No matter if you decide to build or buy remember

to enjoy the process and….

As Always,
