Howdy, folks! I have been MIA for months, afflicted by all kinds of complicated real life stuff and by a new game on my phone that eats my attention. In any case… For many years now (16 to be exact), DH and I have used mVelopes to track our expenses. I splurged and paid for a Lifetime Subscription way back when because it was quickly going to pay for itself, and did. However, they have decided to stop doin personal budgeting because they’ve got a more lucrative business dealing with commercial companies. So I am soon going to be without a budgeting tool.
While annoying, this is also a good opportunity for me and DH to refocus our budgeting system. We no longer really need to track every cent, and in fact we don’t. Instead, we want to track based on three groups:
- “regular” expenses
- major things (3 cars, 2 remodels, 1 really nice vacation in the next 5 years)
At the same time, we do like being able to see all our transactions from the various streams that we have.
Anyone have recommendations for a system that will make sense to former mVelopes users and will cover those much broader things?
ThyPeace, this new place is weird but I kinda think it’s a good idea.
