Stress of the IRS: Food For Thought

When it comes to doing my taxes, the same thing happens every year. I procrastinate. When I finish turbo-taxing, I vow that I will never save them until the last minute again.

Oops!

Here it is, two days before taxes are due and I haven't started. I can't believe I've done this to myself again. Next year, for sure I'm going to start early....

Anyway, since I haven't completely figured out how to stave off cravings, and since I still use food for psychological comfort, here is what I'm currently chowing on while feeling the stress of the IRS:
  • dried mango (the Trader Joe's, unsweetened kind)
  • FruitSource-sweetened chocolate covered almonds (I can only find them at Safeway)
  • raw almonds
  • macadamia nuts, and
  • Tazo "Passion" tea, hot.
Now, I've got work to do! Good luck with filing taxes, if you haven't already!

US tax-time sounds super stressful! In Aus it's not too bad, unless you have lots of investments and houses etc. Certainly don't need to worry about that LOL! Good luck with your taxes :).
