wife again and for those wondering

I will be using mileage as a deductible on taxes and any supplies I happen to need. Some clients pay more then others by their choice - 2 of them pay me 12.50 an hour and all my clients (at this point) provide all the cleaning supplies. When I have a client that doesn't then of course I will be deducting those supplies.

****Husband says, "good plan wife!" Thank you! Smart girl that wife is!

******Our biggest problem (other than, obviously our marriage), is lack of discipline to follow through and stick with things. Hopefully this 'debt mountain lesson' will have taught us a lesson. That 'flying by the seat of our pants' and not keeping track of things DAILY and not having a plan that has SHORT-TERM as well as LONG-TERM goals . . . is a train-wreck waiting to happen.

****We lose paper ALL THE TIME. My suggestion is that we keep track of this kind of stuff in our computers. We have friend who is an expert with Excel. He would be willing to spend a few hours of his day to set it up for us and teach us how to use it.

*****Paper we lose. In over 25 years of using PC's . . . I have never lost one! In 25 years of using paper, I have lost thousands upon thousands of pieces of paper.
