I’d been getting a lot of emails asking about the best apps for managing money and the best personal finance apps. I’ve tried out a whole bunch of apps and here are my favourites. My only criteria for liking/recommending an app is this: Does the app make me want to come back? Using an app to track your money requires you to cultivate the habit of recording your expenses and incomes as and when they happen. So, it is important for the app and its interface to be addictive, in a way. These are the best apps among those I tested to help you track your expenditure and create budgets. They’re all American made but they all support the Rupee symbol as well.
Sale season just doesn’t seem to end, does it? If it’s not an end-of-season-sale at a high street retailer like Zara, it’s an exhibition featuring cool indie brands or boutique selections from other parts of the country. There’s always something that you want to buy or need to have. We seem to be constantly bombarded by desire and it is so exhausting just to keep up. The advertising during sales also feed into existing temptation – it’s always like, look how much money you’d save! And you believe it and literally buy that sentiment of ‘saving’ money during sales – except you’re not saving money.
