Has all your holiday spending got you wondering about the best personal finance software? It’s definitely not as fun and exciting as an Xbox or an Amazon Fire Stick, but finding the right money management program to help you manage your household budget is an investment everyone should make. Although most of us spend a lot of time worrying about money, savings and finding ways cut costs, few of us actually keep track of everything. In fact, the NFCC’s 2014 Financial Literacy Survey reported, “In 2014, about two in five U.S. adults (39%) – a proportion that has held roughly steady since 2007 – say they have a budget and keep close track of their spending.”
So for the other three out of five of you—now you know what your New Year’s resolution should be! To help get you on track for 2015, we’ve rounded the best personal finance software, budget tools and online solutions to manage your money.
