Part of New Year's resolutions is to keep better track of where my money is going.
I have a regular day job and I also do some freelancing work online , which is not related to my regular job. In my online job, I regularly take payments from several different companies, mostly in my paypal account.
I want to be able to track not only the income from my day job, but also from my freelancing work. I want to track which online company paid me, how much,etc. Any system which will let me use tags would be great (so I can assign any incoming payment the name of the company that paid me as a tag).
Also, I want to track the expenses from my freelancing job (web hosting, domains,etc.) but also my daily regular expenses. Again,any system that uses tags is a plus.
For expense tracking I was using texthog.com, which works great because I can assign tags to each expense and I can keep track easily. But unfortunately , texthog only does expenses and not income.
I tried mint, but I found it pretty confusing and honestly, overkill for what I want to do.
Any recommendations for a system that would satisfy my needs?
