A couple of years ago I had a little epiphany when I was working on my taxes. And that epiphany went something like this: “Oh good LORD my bookkeeping is a big hot mess.”
Granted, things are perhaps a bit more complex for me because I run my own business, but everyone utilizing even a single bank account needs to have a reliable tracking system when it comes to managing their finances.
After extensive research, I bought myself a copy of Quicken which I have since loved and hugged and called George. Oh, just kidding—I don’t really call it George. (My computer is George. Obviously.) It has changed my life and I’m not even kidding. You could eat off my bookkeeping, now. Even though I am apparently mixing my metaphors.
Anyway, here’s some really neat news: Quicken Online is now completely free to use, forever. If you need some help getting your finance tracking into shape, definitely check it out. You can’t beat the price, that’s for sure.
And if you’d rather have the high-power, stand-alone version? Well, right now Quicken is offering 20% off and free shipping on their products, too. But I would have to say that for most folks, the free online version will be sufficient.
Why not get yourself organized now, before the holidays and well ahead of tax season? Feel free to thank me by sending cookies.
