    Thanks, Anne! This post made me feel better about sending my CPA all of my spreadsheets. I had this idea that everyone else sent in their shoeboxes full of receipts and I was being too anal.

    Thanks, Cameron! I can’t even imagine what my accountant would charge to go through all my receipts. And how could he possibly make sense of them? I don’t even send him my spreadsheets. I send in highly organized/edited versions of my spreadsheet!

    So, yeah, not anal, pretty normal.
