Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 184.108.40.206
I do a fair bit of freelance work outside of my "real" job. I've always just used an MS template and Excel to send and track invoices. Unfortunately, that's quickly becoming more of a problem than a solution.
What kind of software do you use to create/track invoices? Any advise or suggestions would be a great benefit. Thanks,

PCWorld (or PCmagazine?) recently did an article about accounting software, and another less costly software was very well received (can't remember the name, sorry).
Years ago I used Peachtree and thought it was fabulous. I recently downloaded the latest version and was appalled. It's a clone of Quickbooks.
So, I'm still looking for something better as well, but for now Quickbooks does the job.
This gives you the ability to do invoices, proposal, etc. Also if you are just freelancing you probably only need to file a Schedule C each year so it will integrate with your other finances making tax time easier...

It's pretty lightweight, and minimal investment if you're not sure what you need.
It is double entry, but I don't "validate" my SA - only her QB has to agree with my banking records...
