If you’re anything like me — and my apologies if you are — then you struggle daily under the weight of expenses. Too many of them to track, too many places to which to submit them, and no easy way to track ’em as you incur ’em.
I usually return from trips with clothes pockets ballooning with expense receipts, plus a bunch more in random luggage locations where I don’t remember putting them in the first place. And then, of course, the real adventure begins: Trying to figure out if I actually kept all the receipts in my hustling from airport, to cab, to hotel, to meeting, to cab, to airport again.
Until now, that is. My friend Tony Darugar has launched the nifty Xpenser, a tool/service that allows you track your expenses as they happen via the magic of SMS, email, IM, or voice (via Jott). Whatever way you want to note that you just paid $86.41 for dinner for one in Manhattan, or that you paid $120 to cab from Heathrow downtown, you can now do track it as it happens.
Downsides? Yes, you’ll still have all those darn receipts to keep track of, but at least now you’ll know much sooner which ones you’re missing.
Check it out.
