    I haven't used it myself, but I'll echo Ledsteplin on this - Mint. I've written some articles about tech over the past few years, and Mint has always seemed like a great app for all your money management needs.

    Well, I've written this post twice already but Safari white paged and threw away the post twice as I was running around switching apps gathering details and links, so third time's a charm (switched to Tapatalk!)

    Mint is good for figuring out where the money went, but I like to get ahead of it and try to decide where the money goes before it gets there.

    I use Fudget, a pretty basic tool that doesn't do much but add up income and subtract expenses. It has some bugs, and would be nice with a couple extra features, but simpler is better.


    Here's a sample screenshot of my ideal budget at the moment (I'm probably not allocating enough for groceries tho)

    After I've figured out where all the money I make for the month will go, I split it up between pay periods with an allocated spending plan Excel worksheet (I get paid every 2 weeks, and I get bit by auto pays a lot if I don't keep meticulous track of when the money comes in and goes out)


    This sheet works in Excel, Numbers, or Google Docs, I've used it in each, it's probably easier to modify in Numbers on an iPhone, on a laptop I use Excel, but the iPhone excel app kinda sucks and doesn't let me open it if I've accidentally left the excel sheet open on a computer.

    I've also tried the EveryDollar app from Ramsey Solutions


    I found that it didn't quite work with the way my brain's wired, and complicated things that don't need to be, but your mileage may vary.

    I'll continue rocking Fudget and the allocated spending plan Excel sheet until I find (or make) something better
