Hey folks!
What works the best for software that can tell me how much I am spending on things weekly, monthly, or yearly?

I've been using Peachtree Accounting for 15 years. It does everything you need. Great service too.

Payroll, Accounts Receivable, Accounts Payable, etc... etc...

Edit: For personal home budgeting... Try Quick Books

I guess that I should have said this would be for home use. You made me realize that I had missed a very important detail to my post.
It sounds to me that you have worked with some good software.

I like Quicken. It has done as much, or as little, as I have needed ot to.

For all of you folks who bought the Quicken software, what did you not like about it?

Always enjoyed reading your posts.

Do you use credit cards or debit cards?

It really depends on how complex your finances are.



Pen and paper will work with 65% of the people out there.



Excel will a good bunch of the rest.



Only a few really need software.





I have rental properties, 3 investment accounts, some bonds and use 3 credit cards (paid off every month) and I use an Excel spreadsheet I made.

I do have Excel. Coming up with a few formulas for what I need isn`t beyond my grasp but I am not sure about getting a pie chart going.

Column for date, trans type, amounts, etc and then use a pivot table to summarize the data.

Yeah. If you aren't going to take the time to type if out in excel, you won't take the time to use the other accounting apps.

The only decent thing about quicken type apps is they will download your account data and parse it, but you still have to go in and polish things up.

I know, you plug in all your info, but they are the same people (Intuit) that do my taxes already.

Pie charts aren't that hard with excel. Lots of free online tutorials.
