Pay A Little, but Worth it:
REALLY!!! I understand that this is site is consistently Inspiring you to Save. I for one, am looking for what is cheap or free. But sometimes paying for something can actually save you money. And in this case, I think the following apps might just be worth the few extra bucks.
You Need a Budget (YNAB) (free app but you need their software which is ~$60)- The software will sync between your computer and phone so you can keep everything up to date easily. This app gives you both a high level view and very detailed, depending on what you need.
With any freebie app, please make sure that you do your research and check out the available options that will suit your family’s budgeting needs.
Dollarbird– This app helps you create a budget. You still have to manually enter your expenses, but it is designed well and is very user friendly. This app is perfect for a single person, but could work for a couple without any unusual expenses or income.
Budget app, Plus More:
Mint- This free app is more of a financial tool than a pure budgeting app, but worth considering. This app takes out much of the manual requirements, and does it for you. Mint has something for everyone and is great at tracking multiple accounts and summarizing your finances each month.
Do your research and try some apps until you find the one that works best for you. Whichever you choose, you will be on a better financial path. Do you have an app not listed that you love? Please share with us your favorite budgeting app.
