(MoneyHippo.com) – No matter how much or how little money you bring into your home, everyone needs a budget to track where their money is going. Without one, it’s really hard to reach your financial goals. Luckily, several apps help you budget better and easier, so you don’t get overwhelmed and throw in the towel.
- Apps like You Need a Budget (YNAB) give you the tools to track your wealth, reach your financial goals, and organize your financial life — stress-free.
- Another budgeting app to consider is Mint. Like YNAB, this app helps you set up a budget and track your investments. Mint also keeps an eye on your credit score, reminds you to pay your bills, gives you finance tips and calculators, and the app is free to use.
- A third option is Simplifi by Quicken. The app has a yearly cost of about half of YNAB, giving you the ability to track your spending and manage your cash flow. Quicken also syncs to your bank accounts, tracks monthly bills and subscriptions, and gives you a customized spending plan.
- One last budget app is Zeta. The service is free, giving you budgeting tools designed for couples. You can open a joint checking account with Zeta, and they will help you manage your money by tracking your spending, setting up goals, and reminding you to pay your bills.
The bottom line is there are plenty of apps that offer budgeting options, so all you have to do is choose the one that fits your goals and sign up.
