Would Projects help me track total expenses at buying trips?

I have a retail store and go on several buying trip to different merchandise shows.  Some are for me to buy and others are for me to do both.  I do NOT currently use QBO for tracking sales by inventory.  However, I do want to track the total of my expenses for any given show.  I attend about anywhere from 100  to 20. I would separate them into 4 different categories of buying. I want to enter the cost of the show, meals, mileage,  and lodging and be able to search by show to get the total cost of the show.

 

I have search this community and not sure I get the difference between jobs and projects.  Are they the same?

I am pretty sure classes is not what I need.

Can I get what I want from projects?

  5. Click Save.

To create your first project:
