Tracking personal expenses: Shoeboxed and OneReceipt

With Shoeboxed, you send documents to the company, and one of its workers processes and verifies the information. The app works in conjunction with the Shoeboxed website.

A free version of Shoeboxed is available, but that requires you to self-process almost all of your receipts. For $9.95 a month, Shoeboxed will do the heavy lifting and process and categorize up to 1,000 documents a month. Other plans range up to $49.95.

For a free version of the same concept, try OneReceipt. Use your iPhone to take photos of receipts and then index and store the info. Android users are out of luck when it comes to an app, but can still sign up for an account online.
