A GREAT Way to Keep Track of your Etsy Profits/Expenses!!

So I have been thinking a lot lately about what I need to do for my business. I knew that I needed to get some sort of excel spreadsheet in order. I just had to take the time to sit down and do it. First I decided to post a forum and ask my fellow etsians how they go about organizing their shop's profits/expenses to have everything in one place for tax time (as this is a huge fear of mine, not having this correct by the time I go to the accountant). Here is the forum link I originally posted: http://www.etsy.com/forums_thread.php?thread_id=6251981

Then someone with the shop name of AccountingSpot (http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=7127134) not only helped me, but in turn helped many others. And based off of everyone's comments on the thread and on her blog, it made me so glad to have started that topic of discussion. So today I finally sat down to check out AccountingSpot's FREE.... yes, I did say that..... FREE worksheet to calculate profits/expenses. The link for this free download and AccountingSpot's blog is here: http://www.accountingspotonline.com/2009/07/free-download-simple-profit-loss.html.

I think any etsy shop owner will greatly appreciate the effort that was put into this form for us to be able to use for free... Especially beginning etsians! Happy Financing!
