I first discovered your blog years ago, and after feeling overwhelmed by the need to do a better job of saving for the future, I’ve circled back around. Anyways, I was wondering if you or any of your readers had any suggestions for mobile phone apps to track spending on wants for the Spending Diet. It seems most apps I’m finding are more about an overall budget and tracking ALL THE THINGS, when I would love a simple way to have a quick look at just wants spending for the month. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!
Anything to make budgeting easier!
Need Help Tracking My Wants
You know, to tell you the truth, I haven’t heard of an app that does what you’re asking an app to do. When I was doing my Spending Diet, I would use a paper check register from the bank and I would track my wants expenses on a piece of paper. However, I suppose that could also be done easily in the notes section of your phone, too. :) Sorry that’s not much help! Lmk if you find a good electronic solution! :)
Best of luck with your budgeting!
How do you track your Wants while on the Spending Fast/Spending Diet? Does anyone know of any free or low-cost apps that do what the reader is asking?
