Martha Stewart at Staples Tax Season Giveaway

It’s that time of year again, the time when my husband occasionally mentions phrases like alternative minimum tax and tax deductible contributions and I shudder in fear.  I’ll admit that as a work-at-home-mom, I loathe tax season.  Every year I vow to do a better job managing the paperwork, and every March my husband and I meet in my office and try to organize my otherwise not terribly organized record keeping.

It always turns out okay in the end except for that business of having to write an uncomfortably large check, but okay is no longer good enough!  With the help of the Martha Stewart Home Office line of products, I am going to have a more organized 2012 business year.

Last week I shared information from the New York City launch of the Martha Stewart Home Office with Avery products available only at Staples and, but we focused mostly on kitchen organization.  Since then I’ve done a little online shopping, and my office is now a bit more organized. Thank you, Martha.

What I haven’t added to my collection yet, however, are the beautifully useful accordion files.  Just in time for tax season, Martha Stewart line includes poly accordion files in a variety of colors and two sizes as well as a gorgeous shagreen accordion file in blue, brown or white.  When in use, the accordion files stay open for easy open and stand freely.  Each file includes elastic band hooks to hold your file closed when not in use.  They range in price from $6.99 for the small poly accordion file to $15.99 for the shagreen accordion file.


One Resourceful Mommy reader will win the following:

– One (1) large shagreen accordion file

– One (1) medium poly accordion file

Enter to Win

    My biggest challenge is bills – I leave them all piled up and then pay them online and never go back through the piles. Kids school paperwork is also a problem for me! I’m just generally unorganized, I guess 🙂

    My biggest paperwork challenge is all the paperwork I generate with my business. I work from home and my desk tends to be an unorganized mess with client forms, to-do lists, receipts, etc.

    My organizational problems are D. all of the above! I always get a notebook…and it is never big enough. Maybe the accordion files will work better…and I won’t pinch
    my fingers.
