Prevent Post-Tax Day Hangovers with Outright and Shoeboxed

It’s happened to all of us. You squint awake in the bright morning sunshine, wondering “What happened last night?” A zillion tiny hammers pound inside your skull while your shaking hands reach reflexively for the aspirin. Your next thought is a solemn promise to yourself to never, ever, ever let that happen again. Sure, it was fun to push it to the limit, but the morning after is so not worth it.

Yes, almost all of us have woken up with that post-Tax Day hangover.

The (Tax) Hangover
Did you look like this the morning after tax day?

During the year, it’s easy to put off tracking your business income and expenses, dealing with receipts, entering your financial records into accounting software, and just gene-
rally taking care of tax preparation. Most of us promise ourselves the day after a particularly brutal Tax Day that we’ll never let that happen again. Of course, the headache wears off and the months start to fly by…

Coffee, a greasy breakfast, Red Bull and apples… we all have our hangover cures. But the best prevention for a hangover? No devil-may-care binge at all!
