Chances are you are not used to the concept of budgeting. Budgeting allows us to set objectives, reach our objectives and measure how well we are progressing along the way.
Budgeting has become easier with the use of technology as many Apps are readily available that can be linked to your bank accounts and make the process of budgeting easier and even fun! These Apps not only allow you to budget, but they also provide accurate information to track your expenditure and savings. Finally, the App runs on your mobile telephone and is readily available wherever you are any time of the day.
Some of the Apps out there include, PocketBook, Moneytree, Trackmygoals and Trackmyspend and moneybrilliant
Trackmyspend is provided by the Australian Securities and Investment Commission and is also available for free.
Moneybrilliant has both a free version with some good features or you can get the full features for a monthly or yearly fee.
There are many more on the market and we encourage you to do your own research and find the right one for you. Most large lenders also provide some form of budgeting tool which is linked to your accounts.
