Diary of a Mad Accountant Wannabe
By Fiddledeedee on March 26, 2010
Secretly, I feel I should have been an accountant. But I sought a degree in the arts because I felt that my diploma should have B.A. instead of the more appropriate B.S.
Appearance was everything.
I was self employed after college for much of my adult life. I learned to keep copious notes of expenditures and tax write-offs in neat journal ledgers while using my carefully sharpened #2 pencil.
My taxes were a work of art.
After I married my computer savvy husband, he spent the first few years of our marriage selling me on the benefits of on-line record keeping and accounting for our little growing family.
Since I played the banker in our Monopoly game of life.
I fought him tooth and nail, but at long last I succumbed to Quicken and online banking, and I haven't looked back.
If you play the banker in your family, what method of record keeping do you find most helpful?
