I always thought I’d graduate to using ‘real’ book keeping software sometime down the road when I was earning enough to make great plans with my money.
As it turns out, I’m having to make great plans now. Well, greatly complicated plans anyway. I’m making my full-time-student budget work for me. We’re getting by, but just barely sometimes. And since I no longer have any W2 employment, I need a better way of tracking my income for taxes.
Open Office spreadsheets combined with downloaded statements from my banks had suited me just fine in the past. Now I’m looking for something to help me document everything more specifically, and help me to easily be able to pull up reports. The hunt commences today, and I’ll let you know what I find, but in the meantime if you’ve got recommendations I’d be happy to give them a go.
