Things to Do Instead of Taxes (Or Any Other Dreaded Task)
Not to sound alarmist or anything, but your taxes are due in about two weeks.
Some people won’t even bat an eye at that statement and will sleep easy knowing they turned their taxes in early and correctly and have already planned an exotic family vacation with their refund.
Other people like us (and hopefully you because misery loves company), wait until the 11th hour to even start thinking about filing taxes, then find every excuse imaginable to keep procrastinating.
So because we’re the ultimate enablers of living your best life (which obviously doesn’t include doing taxes), here are some other, better ways to pass the time.
