Step 3: Google docs will open your image, and also do OCR (optical character recognition) on the photo and put editable text below the image. It's not always 100% accurate, but its pretty close.
A Powerful Tool That You All Have Access to, EXCEL
I have purchased a couple of programs to help track my family's expenses. The first one was a Microsoft program and I really liked it, but they discounted the program. Then I switched to another program, but it tried to help me too much and didn't let me control things the way I wanted. Since then I have tried some other free online options and they too are good, but not what I wanted. So, recently I built my own spreadsheet and set things up the way I wanted them to go. I will continue to modify it to meet my needs and wants.
This is why I like Excel, and I also feel that it is an underused program. I thought I might share some tools to help you all learn to use it some more.
