I had to do up 6 months worth of financial records, and I’m going to try to keep up with that.
^ That is the WTF part.
I’m terrible with that kind of stuff. The only reason I can balance my checkbook is that I have no checkbook! I don’t even have credit cards (anymore) so all I need to keep track of is on my online banking and Paypal account. I get email reminders (that send me alerts on my phone) to pay rent, electricity and cable while everything else just sends an email to let me know they took the money already. I barely have to think.
None of that lends itself to responsible spending or, dare I say it? “Saving.”
Oh, oh my. I think I just jizzed in my pants.
Anyway, since my boyfriend is being turned into an accountant I figure I should get my shit together at least a little before he grows up enough to judge me. Also… if he’s going to be an accountant when he grows up (23 now, I’ve been sewing since he was in diapers) then at least I’ll have someone to help me keep my shit together, right? I just have to get it together in the first place or I’m gonna feel like one of those stupid bitches that can’t do anything without a man’s help. >_<
The way I’m figuring it, I’d like to someday have a brick-and-mortar shop. Just a little one. Just my own stuff and maybe some local indie designers but I don’t want a co-op. That’s for dirty hippies.
Anyway, I don’t think I’ve done my sales tax stuff for a few months and in Sept I actually sold things to a person in AZ (almost never happens, which means I almost never need to collect and hand over sales tax) so I should really get that done. Tonight, hopefully. After all, I’ve got all the records!
