Well, all items are inputed into the QuickBooks. Of course, I’m off. This year it’s only $100ish and oddly, I seem to have started off right at the beginning. So I guess it’s not exactly my bookkeeping. The credit cards of course, are off a bit more. *sigh*
So tomorrow, it appears that I’ll be taking a nice leisurely lunch along with my bank and credit card statements and a printout of the register so I can compare things line by line. Have I mentioned that bookkeeping is SO not my forte? My goal is to generate enough income this year to actually make it worthwhile to hire a bookkeeper. Most importantly, so she can legitimately get rid of all the old discrepancies so we can actually balance at year end.
Then again, I always tell myself that if I just take the time each month to input everything into QB, I won’t go so crazy at the end of the year. I was pretty on top of things this year so come year-end, I just had October – December to do. Much easier than the first year the hubs had be do the books and I had to input the entire year in about 2 weeks. SO much easier my way. It would be even easier still with a bookkeeper, right?
Now, it’s time to take advantage of this warm weather and take the pupster out for a walk.
* I certainly don’t want to own this hate of bookkeeping, so for all intents and purposes, it just seems like I hate it (really deep down!)
Hi there LA Blogger! I’ve been seeing your comments on my site and have a feeling that I’ve met you before. I’ve read and commented on a few entries on your old site; drop me a line when you get a chance.
Anyway, I also attempted to do some bookkeeping this weekend for my taxes, and while you seem to hate it, I actually enjoy doing it. There’s just something about my personality and numbers that are a good fit.
I’ll see you on the blogsphere (is that what the kids are calling it these days?) – in the meantime, best of luck to your new endeavor!
