Is there an expense tracking service that is as simple as forwarding a screenshot or email?

I'd like to track my expenses as *simply* and *quickly* as possible. I dont want automatic trackers, because many of my expenses LOOK like expenses but are not. If i purchase something from Amazon, i'd like to either a.) take a photo of the receipt, write a reason why its a write off, send it along, and be done with my day. I'd like it to accept links, text, images, and more if possible. Does this exist? I'm currently using expensify, but it is not at all 'simple' or 'minimal'.

    I was recently wondering the same thing. This has some pretty slick features, albeit more full featured than you might be looking for. But indeed has the capability to either auto-scan a gmail account or you can send an email with attachment to an email address they provide you.

    AND CO is definitely the way to go. They do exactly what you're looking for to track expenses + more. It's targeted towards business users, but you could use it for personal use, given that you don't want to use automatic trackers, like Mint.

      I've tried every time-tracking/invoicing app there is for freelancers, but when I finally tried AND CO I was instantly sold!

      Both the web app and mobile app are a delight to use. They are fast and just work without any hiccups. The features are great and have helped me save a ton of time on admin work. Sending an invoice or a contract is a breeze. You also get a real, live human to ask for help! Need to invoice a client? Have a question about your taxes? Simply send a message to your CO and they will always have your back!

      Their dev team is also great! I requested a couple features and they were released within a few weeks. That showed me that the team at AND CO listen to their customers and give me confidence to use this app for the long-term.

      It's not often that I fall in love with an app. AND CO is the exception. Highly recommended.

    • Makes it super easy to invoice in a beautiful simple way that clients love. Offering credit card, PayPal and bank ACH payments really feels like it helps me get paid faster and looks professional. It's also a breeze to confirm that I've received payment and is helpful to get reminders of outstanding invoices. Love hearing the chime when money rolls in.


      Can't believe I forgot to mention the support crew. I'm so used to banking/financial apps making service an afterthought. Whenever I have a question or issue they're on it within minutes and always eager to help.
