Gina, a reader of Gather Little by Little, wrote to me at the end of January and asked “When did you have your Epiphany about your finances?” She shared a little about her epiphany and then said it would be interesting to read about mine and others. I thought this was a great idea, and asked if she would be interested in writing her’s up as a guest post. I love the opportunity to allow my readers to guest post and I think Gina did a fantastic job (Thanks Gina!).

Ask The Readers – What Software or Tools Do You Use to Manage Your Finances?

Ask The Readers

A friend of mine and I where having a discussion yesterday about what software/tools we use to manage and keep track of our finances. Based on a previous recommendation by me, he was using SimpleD Budget. I had used it for a while, but decided to go with a custom spreadsheet I developed instead.

I enjoy the flexibility and ease of entry I have using Excel. He was considering going to MS Money or Quicken, which I have also used in the past.

It did make me wonder, what does everyone else use? What software or tools do you use to manage your finances?
