Really? I love it.

Yeah, absolutely. I am maybe showing my age (36) but budget aps didn’t exist when I first had to figure things out which was about when I started grad school. (In college I lived in the dorms and ate in the cafeteria so there wasn’t a lot to keep track of) So my super old school and boring method was figure out how much money I was bringing in, figure out places my money had to go (rent, utilities, cell phone) and then how much did I have left. I tracked my spending in an spreadsheet.

To be fair my student loans were deferred and I had no credit card or medical or other debt. I drove a honda with 200,000 miles on it that had no payment. But in general the easier you keep things the easier it is to deal with.

I used to also make lists of things I wanted and never buy a thing until it had been on the list for at least 30 days and usually only if it was on sale. I’d allow myself to not bring lunch one day a week.

But yeah that interface is overly complex and terrible and totally turns me off from wanting to budget.

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
