Default Business software?

Is anyone using software to operate a small business that will keep track of a small inventory and do invoices and keep the books?? I am hoping this can be done for less than a small fortune!!?? Any suggestions out there?
Thanks

Dick

Quickbooks Pro. After seeing my records using the software the IRS chose to not persue an investigation into my company about a year ago. The software will keep you honest (and safe) if you use it as intended.

My wife's company is using Quickbooks Pro. Seems fairly user friendly.

I looked at QB pro and P'tree but had issues with both. I had trouble with the inventory and order entry. I went with the Redwing Accounting software and use it for inventory control, invoicing, purchase orders and all accounting functions. I have been using it for about 4 years and just upgraded to the new Turning Point edition.
