At least once a week you can find me sneaking over to my husband’s desktop so I can keep track of my reviews, giveaways, pr contacts, and posts using Microsoft Word & Excel. When we purchased my laptop it came with a free trial of Microsoft Office 2010 but the trial only lasted a couple months and quickly expired. Instead of purchasing the full version I just used the desktop. Not only is the Microsoft Office on the desktop the 2000 version, over 10 years old, but it can be a pain to go between my laptop which I normally do most of my work on and the desktop. When Microsoft gave me the opportunity to upgrade to the Microsoft Office Home & Business 2010 Edition of course I jumped on it.
Micosoft Home and Business 2010 is great for the whole family. It can help busy moms stay organized, allows teens and college age students to edit school projects and helps dad stay up to date on his business finances.

As you can see the layout of Word 2010 looks a lot nicer and has more options then my 2000 version. I have been using Microsoft Word & Excel 2010 daily for the past month and I regret not upgrading sooner. There are so many new features available and I love the in dept tool bar, editing is much more convenient now. It is also great to not have to go between computers to stay organized.
Although PowerPoint was a great help with projects in college, I mainly now only use Word an Excel. Microsoft Word allows me to write and edit my posts while Excel is great to help me stay organized. I can keep a list of contacts, and organize my reviews & giveaways. I used to only use Excel for Blogging purposes but have recently started to use it on a more personal level to help our family stay organized, I can now easily keep track of our schedule and our family budget which has been a big help.
