Business Organization...Help!

I'm 15 years old and currently growing my business. I am having a gard time finding the best way to be organized! I'm using the calendar on my computer for scheduling, excel for invoices, payments, expense & income, etc.

I have 10 yards right now, but it's starting to get hard to keep up with everything. I'm an organized person and this is frustrating to me that I can't find a good way to keep track of everything.

I hear & see things like groundskeeper, quickbooks, service auto-pilot, etc. I don't think I need something like that yet, plus it's too expensive.

If anyone would care to share how they're doing it and give me some help it would be much appreciated.

Quickbooks. I think you'll find that most guys use some sort of program. I'm not sure that your question is clear. You're asking us to help you be organized but you aren't ready for software. You're using spreadsheets etc. what's you're question? What's hard for you about being organized with 10 clients? A bit more info will help

I do hardcopy... one paper for "Time Card" and one paper for "Invoice" that is totalled monthy for each client...
2 folders on the desk... that's easy...

Once you 'simplify' you system, moving it to computer is also simpler...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
