Default Program for Keeping Track of Expenses and Income

What program(if any) do you use to keep track of expenses and income?? I was thinking of buying quikbooks but was wondering if there might be something that works better for other providers?

I prefer to just make my own forms in excel. I can tailor them to suit my needs better than using any programs.

Minute Menu Pro. I purchased the Pro version even though my food program gives me the regular version for free so that I can accept the electronic payments and get all the extras.

minute menu is great. I also bill my parents through childcarepay.com which works with minute menu.

All online and electronically, a huge selling point for parents. Saves a trip to the bank and bounced checks.
