You Need A Budget!

If you make money... well, you probably spend money...

And if you spend money, you gotta have some way to manage it. Are you managing ok, or do you think you may be able to do better? If so, read on!

I've been recently using a personal finance software called You Need A Budget, or YNAB for short. It's an envelope based system that is remarkable! I've used quicken, MS Money, My Envelopes, and Mint, but none of them holds a candle to YNAB. There's a ton of helpful info at the website, great videos, and a very supportive forum. There's a new version coming out real soon, YNAB 3. I'm really looking forward to that! It'll probably be out by the time you read this!

If you spend money, do yourself a faver and check it out!
