Anyway, for those times when I don't get a receipt, I need to record the expense until I can get to my home computer to enter it. My Treo came with a program called SplashMoney, but it's in trial mode. I was thinking I'd buy an iPhone before the trial ended, but now I'm putting off that purchase, so I was about to go buy this program.
Then I stopped dead in my tracks. Why on Earth do I need to purchase a program to record those few purchases that don't generate a receipt? Some of which I shouldn't be making anyway, like junk from vending machines. I can write things down on a piece of paper. People did all their accounting on paper not so long ago, after all.
Paper, folded, in wallet, done. Another $30 saved. Small steps.
