    I'm currently renovating a house and am wanting to keep track of all the costs etc.

    I'm totally useless at keeping track of these things, and have been recommended by my accountant to use an accounts package, but have been told that the one he recommended is for Windows only.

    I have Microsoft Office 2004 and could go the Excel route, but I would think this would take a while to set-up, and may not be idiot proof :D

    So, can anybody recommend an accounts package to me?

    If you're looking for a full on accounts package you may want to try one of Mind Your Own Business line of products. I think if you go to www.myob.co.uk you can download a 30 day demo of each one.

    I run my bookkeeping business on their products and they do just fine.

    Thanks for the recommendations - I'll check them out tonight :)

    Does anybody have any others? Preferably freeware?

    Do you happen to have a copy of Quicken on your machine? It seems to come on many Mac products. You could set up accounts and categories within Quicken easily.

    As a last free resort you could use a text file and enter your categories and amounts then let your accountant have the data--they are so often handed paper and receipts in a shoe box that he'll be grateful even for a text listing.
