Tracking Expenses


Staff member
How do you track your cash expenses?

I use Quicken and enter each cash expense and file the receipt away.

This last year I decided to try something new so that I could find my receipts easier and I started assigning them a number.

First I started out with a complicated system where the number would actual mean something and realized that was to much of a pain.

I then went to a sequential numbering system and I will use that for the next year for everything.

If we do not have a receipt which happens less and less since the laundry rooms went to the card readers, I enter the amount of the expense, what the expense was for, and then also the location, city and state.
