    You can use Excel for your books and you contacts. Access is also good for contacts. If you plan on growing at all, invest in Quickbooks Pro. They've already set up all the features that you'd have to program in Excel.

    I used MS Small Office Accounting for a while. I liked the reporting. You can use an express version if you do not want to track assets. I still use it for another company I run.
