Best Budget Software Ever

YNAB (You Need a Budget) is the absolute best software for budgeting! It’s a lot of work keeping your budget up to date but this software makes it so much easier. Just bought something? Pull up your app and log it! Boom, 2 seconds and you’re done. No waiting to you get home to add your expenses in your software, do it all on the go now! They also have free classes that help you use their software to its full potential. Easy to use, multiple users can share it (I'm not computer smart, just followed their easy steps and everything continues to sync perfectly!)

YNAB has a different concept than most budgeting plans, every dollar has a job, don’t “forecast” your costs (only use the money you actually have in your account) and how to get yourself in a position where you aren’t living from paycheck to paycheck – get at least one month ahead. They make it seem so manageable, unfortunately some of us have acquired more debt than others, but don’t fear, you too can get out of debt.

Life Changing App

This app has totally changed our lives. I never have fear in writing a check, or worrying about overdraft. This makes so much sense! We used to live from paycheck to paycheck, and one year ago were in such a mess… I love this so much… The philosophy behind it is great and the app just works, i have not had any technological mishaps, despite using across multiple platforms.
There is a little adjustment to start using, but once you get established with it, you will be so thankful that you spent the time and money. It has more than paid for itself.

Highly recommend

I've tried a few different budget apps, and they all seem to be too complicated for what I want to accomplish, or with too many "budget" categories that make you think more than I have the time for. This one presents your accounts and budgets in a concise manner, the categories make sense and are easy to edit, and the presentation of the final distribution of expenditures is clean. If you're a financial advisor by career, maybe not for you. If you're just a regular person trying to get some structure and discipline, this definitely works.
