Carolina Pad for Tax Time Giveaway - Review by Courtney of Simple Savings Secrets

Contest Closed! Winner contacted and will be announced soon!

I am definitely an organizer,  but my husband is not.

We have had many discussions about him putting a receipt in the wrong place.

So when I received this wonderful pack of organizational tools from Carolina Pad, I was very excited to get all of my past and current tax papers organized.

My current filing was not working with the limited folders and random categories. I used the big 26-pocket folder to put all my past tax year papers in the same place. I added some of the folders and labeled them according to type of tax paper (donations, retirement, medical, etc.) so I can put the current year receipts in there, too. I used the clips to keep W-2s separated inside the folders.

My only complaint is that even though it came with multiple tabs for the folders, they were only months and the alphabet, but I needed years. I would have liked to see them add in yearly tabs as well. But that was a very small inconvenience and I simply wrote the years on the extra tabs. Now all of my tax papers are in one place and easily accessible. Plus, I love how cute everything is! No boring plain colors, but bright and girly designs. It made it all a little more fun.

This would come in handy for multiple things! I like the idea of using it for taxes to keep papers and W2s and stuff organized. We can never find the right forms when we need them. I also like the idea of using these to keep some of the rest of my life organized a little better by writing things down or filing them!

I would file our receipts, tax forms and all that other fun stuff in the folder. I would use the notebook for my calculations as I like to do all my math by hand and then double check it on the calculator. The rest of the things I would use for things that are not tax related as a reward for making it through tax time.

We have a lot of receipts to keep track of for medical expenses that we can claim on our taxes. It would be great to keep them better organized!
