If you’re interested in the products and services I personally use for budgeting, personal finance, and life management, this is your resource! I’ve complied a list of my favorite recommendations. This list includes only the companies and offerings I have personally used and/or know are extremely helpful in helping you manage your personal finances. (And many of them are completely FREE).
Disclosure: This post contains some affiliate links for your convenience (which means if you make a purchase after clicking a link I will earn a small commission but it won’t cost you a penny more)! Regardless, I only recommend products and services I personally use and/or have verified to be beneficial for personal finance and life management.
To get your finances under control, you need to be creating a monthly budget and tracking expenses throughout the month. I failed at keeping a paper budget, but once I found EveryDollar (created by Dave Ramsey’s Team) it made such a big difference that we’ve been budgeting since February 2018 faithfully and successfully. The free version allows you to create the budget, track expenses including debt pay off and savings, and it’s very user friendly. The paid version imports your bank transactions automatically so all you need to do is categorize them. We create our budget on a desktop computer and then track it in the app, although you can create a budget in the app as well.
