    Hi Freewife, 27 accounts is pretty impressive. I only have 18 but I'm on my own. Yes, a mega spreadsheet or two is essential I have sheets that track to other sheets that pull information from more sheets with an assortment of complicated calculations designed to forecast into the future! Thank goodness for standing orders!






    I'm enjoying your diary so far, good luck with it.
