I need software that will help me to keep track of warranties and support agreements

I'm the Systems Admin here and frequently I get hit with this or that company contacting me stating that our support agreement or warranty is expiring soon.  I am looking for some software that I can use to help me to keep track of warranties and support agreements.  I'd like to be able to see what needs to be renewed within the next fiscal year or within a particular time period.  Also, our budget is pretty tight, so free would be best if possible.

Any suggestions?

We put everything in a Excel spreadsheet.

We put the following in:
Company
Support Contract #
Start Date
End/Renew Date
Serial #
Support/Contract Cost
Support #
Contact Person/Account Rep

Thanks for all of the suggestions.  I had looked at Spiceworks a couple of years ago and so I gave it another look, but I think the Excel spreadsheet will work best.  I'll be using the template suggested by saigasmith after a little bit of tweaking.
