    I would say yes but do you know anything about accounting. If you don't then QB can be a pain. You can get several reports with QB but you need to keep the books balanced.

    Check out quickbooksusers.com.

    Hi contourbs,

    Here is something to consider. You pay a book keeper 35 dollars a month to enter expenses. How long does it take your bookkeeper to do this? Can you make more money in that same time servicing lawns or even enjoying yourself doing fun things? If you can, then keep the bookkeeper. If you need to conserve your money and you have extra time then consider doing it yourself.
