The business side of blogging can be tedious. Lately, online and smartphone apps have stepped up to take the chore out of business planning tasks like bookkeeping and invoicing. Shoeboxed aims to move physical shoeboxes full of receipts from the bottom of the office drawer to an easy-to-use online app. We used their site for a month and found many positives that warrant writers to stop and take a look.

The site organizes and stores receipts, business cards and documents and provides money management tracking and smartphone interaction. There are several plans available for use, ranging from free to $49.95 a month. Online. The ‘most popular’ $29.99 option was reviewed for a month. This plan gives users:
