Customer Question
and Business document along with...
I've not been doing a good job with organizing my personal and Business document along with receipts and logging miles . I'm newly married and my husband said we will work on changing all of this .
He said that there is a lot of apps and software that can help us . He is researching apps that can be used with the iPhone to scan organize and file . He said this would be the best thing if a app like this exist since we have our phones on us all the time .
We do use quicken but I have not been doing a good job of scanning my receipts and categorizing. Please tell me what you might suggest
