Itâ€™s already December! If youâ€™re like me youâ€™re maybe wondering â€“ where did this year go? Feels like just last week we were talking about New Yearâ€™s resolutions. No doubt youâ€™ve got shopping to do and a few work deadlines this month. I wonâ€™t be surprise that some of your 2007 resolution list is still undone. But with only 26 days left in 2007, there are few other items you want to cross off your list thatâ€™ll make 2008 easier.
Make your last doctor/dentist appointments of the year.
Lots of health plans have a coverage limit for each calendar year. So if you haven’t gotten to the doctor or dentist yet? Make yourself a December appointment to use up your 2007 allocation.
Make your tax-deductible purchases and charitable donations.
If you itemize your income tax deductions, with March ony a few months away, now the time for a trip to the building supplies store or even the computer store. 🙂 Also, keep yourself from feeling selfish when you’re calculating your charitable donations on your tax return on March.
Put a few dollars towards stopping global poverty or helping to fight AIDS before 2007 is up. As a matter of fact, Sunday past (December 1st) just happens to be World AIDS Day.
You can even pack up all those unused gadgets, clothing and other doodads laying about the house and take ’em to the Goodwill or Out-reach center. Get yourself a receipt to claim the tax deduction for those, too…I think ❗ Any more 2006 to-do’s I missed? Post ’em up in the comments.
