3 Easy To Use Apps to Keep Your Finances on Track
Staying financially fit is difficult, to say the least. Many of us have worked hard to gain a certain level of comfort with our finances. But whether or not you're simply struggling to get out of debt or maintain a level of security that you've fought long and hard for, everyone can use at least a little bit more help.
Here are three apps that can help you on your daily path to financial independence:
Budget Simple is a free web service where you can set your monthly budget and track percentages of your income and expenses easily and efficiently. Whenever you make a purchase, simply enter it into the app and it's recorded on the Budget Simple website. Budget Simple keeps track of your monthly spending and allows you to copy over each month's budget easily so that you don't have to constantly copy and paste encrypted spreadsheets and store them in random nooks and crannies of your laptop. Budget Simple is nothing fancy but that's its strength. It's straight-forward, no-nonsense, and easy to use so use.
Checkbook Ledger is similar to Budget Simple in that it's simply a checkbook on your phone. How many times have you had to go through your bank statement trying to figure out where and when a payment was made or a product was purchased? Checkbook Ledger allows you to quickly and easily input any purchase or payment so you can easily keep track of what's going on with your bank account without constantly looking at your bank statement. You can break things down by card, by bank account, or even by family member. And Checkbook Ledger protects this information with a password and pin that you set. Checkbook Ledger has saved me from an overdrawn bank account many a time and is a great addition to your financial arsenal.
Tired of piling up receipts and stuffing them in the drawers of your work desk? Then get Scannable from Evernote and start scanning your receipts. All you need is a phone and... that's actually all you need! You can use the camera on your smartphone to quickly and easily scan your receipts. Once you scan your receipts they can be stored on Evernote, sent as an email, or text them directly to your accountant – if you guys happen to be that close. Scannable works for all kinds of documents but it's a great solution for efficiently gathering receipt information.
Fancy apps won't replace good financial sense, but the right tools always make the job just a little bit easier. So try these out and best of luck on your financial future!
