    Hey guys, seeing as you all are so helpful with Taco's I feel good you guys can help me with my finances.

    I'm trying to find a program where I can write down what I spend everyday until the end of the month so I can see how much I spend every month/year. I want to crack down on my expenses and organize so I see where and what I'm spending the most money. Is there a program for that?

    All help appreciated!

    You can purchase Quickbooks. If your handy with Excel, you can make your own.

    You don't really care, do you.
    Quickbooks can do anything. It's a great financial program not only for small business but for personal finances.

    If you're good at Excel, you can do anything with it as well but you'll want to be strong with formulas and/or VBA script. Quickbooks is designed for monkeys to use as long as you use the help files and set it up right.

    Microsoft Excel but keep it simple. Those sheets can easily grow to the point where they're unmanageable.

    my co-workers use mint.com, i just use an excel spreadsheet. I tell my company to automatically put 30% of my income into savings, and the rest I take away rent, food, insurance and gas, and the rest goes to my truck :D
