    I was wondering what every one uses to keep track of your expenses and recieving. Also if anyone would be willing to share what they use. I am in the process of making my own.

    Thanks in advance for any help or input.

    Quick Books! I log everything in there down to the littlest receipt and I can print out just about any report I want.

    I resisted for a long time. Once I got it though, I realized that should have been the first piece of software I should have bought.

    Definitely Q- books. I too held off till 2007. I can do all my plow invoices in 30 mins.
    Takes a little time to get used to, but a real time saver. You can download bank statements , credit card statements right into q-books, plus much moreThumbs Up

    We use QB too. All business finance software should do if your not already using some.

    The slowest part for me was entering all the customer info, but once it's there, it's easy to knock out an invoice.

    I especially love the fact that I can e-mail invoices from quickbooks to my customers. Only a handful I have to mail or deliver.

    We have a couple that we email to, but I wish many more would let us do that. It is SO fast and easy.

    I am using quickbooks but not as well as I could be. Where do I enter the receipts? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I currently have an accountant doing it for me but the cost is easily something I should be able to eliminate and start doing it myself.

    Somehow I don't think that helps with quickbooks.
