Does anyone know of anything that will do this?

What I want is basically a calculator that will stores numbers till I clear them not just shut off and go back to zero. I want something small like a calculator that I just keep a running total of my calories I've eaten. 90+90+180= 360 so that whenever I want to I can go back and keep adding to that total and easily see just how many calories I've eaten in a day without having to find my notebook or computer that I've been logging into. Every calcultor I've tried goes back to zero after awhile with no use so I still need something extra to keep track on.

You could get a PDA that has spreadsheet software on it

The only suggestion I would have is either a graphic calculator where you can store information easily or an old-fashioned calc with the receipt-like tape, so you can actually see the entire transaction & the total.

I've thought of the PDA but it's so expensive when I don't need it for anything but this.
The graphing calculator is pretty bulky and still pretty expensive.
The receipt tape calculator wouldn't be portable so it's not much better than my computer.

Okay helpful inventor people. Pedometers are selling everywhere someone needs to invent my calculator for me. Give it a belt clip ;)

you can carry a little notebook, and a pen, and do the calculations long hand.

11:07 - that was going to be my suggestion, too!
I was looking for something similar (that would track the amount I was spending on groceries as I progressed through each aisle of the supermarket), and I ended up just using pen and paper. Not fun or high-tech, but it gets the job done!

MS & MR Functions on a basic calculator

Many cheap/free calculators have a basic memory function that does not clear itself when the power is turned off. Look for a M+, MR, MC and MS on most basic units. Here is how you might use it:
Log your first food
Press MS (memory save) or equivalent (stores your 200 value)
When you return to log more
Press MR (memory recall) or equivalent (returns your stored value, in this case 200)
Add your new food calories
press + 75 + 200
press = and it should display 475
Press MS (memory save) and your 475 value is saved
The next time you return start by pushing MR (memory return) then the + key and keep going.

Write by if you need further assistance.
