    I use quickbooks pro 2006 for business. Is there a way I can set it
    up for my personal accounts with groceries and kids costs, etc. that
    aren't usually covered in their business templates?

    I would start a new file for your personal expenses. Just add the accounts
    that you are missing. Or start from scratch adding new accounts as you need
    them. Start with your bank account plus your primary expense categories and
    work from there.

    I have all my accounts in QB. personal and business. Just set up
    separate checking accounts. Maybe this is not the way it should be
    done, but this is the way I started out many years ago with QB for
    DOS.
    Thank You,
    Randy

    Just be careful not to pay any business expense out of personal account or
    vice versa. In the event of an audit the IRS *might* try and accuse you of
    co mingling funds and deny your business expenses. How you track them (1 QB
    file vs 2) is your choice. The IRS does not care.
