Using Google Docs To Track Expenses Among Your Roommates
Recently one of our readers emailed us, asking me to share productivity tips on how I use the computer on a day to day basis, the suggestion in itself was fantastic and I would be more than glad to share things I do in my day to day life to solve problems faced by me and what tricks and products I use to solve them and be more productive, hope you enjoy this new series and don’t forget to keep sending in your suggestions and questions, feel free to contact us and we will try our best to help solve your problem.
To make this series more interesting I would like to present it in a slightly different manner, dividing them into problems I faced, tools I took up to solve it and become more productive and in some cases, I may also include a short how-to on accomplishing the things I did, please feel free to suggest any changes you would like, we are always open to suggestions.
