Over the last year, I've been keeping track of projects and hours through a custom spreadsheet and folder of word docs and PDFs. It never felt that sustainable long term, and now as a full time freelancer, I want to have one location where I can keep track of projects, hours, expenses, invoices, and general cash flow. I'm looking at quickbooks right now, but I'm not sure how well it'll help me track individual projects, etc.
I'm curious what everyone else uses. Do you do it manually with folders and files? Or do you have something more centralized and integrated?
