Tracking subscriptions is a pain.

This month Tom Weaver will share how easy it is to create a simple spreadsheet to track subscriptions, renewals – for frankly, any recurring event or task.

While this month's example will be for printed magazine subscriptions, the spreadsheet will work for digital subscriptions or anything else where you make payments far enough apart to lose track of them.  

This spreadsheet also helps when magazines move your expiration date in a month or two and hope you won’t notice.  (That happens a lot more than you expect.) The sample spreadsheet also has contact numbers for major publishers and a list of many of the magazines they publish.

Come early and enjoy some great food at PoK-e-Jos BBQ Parmer and visit.

Bring your friends – everyone is welcome – and it's free.
