The dashboard for your wallet

This is a no nonsense simple tool for people who just want a snapshot of where their money is going and a nod in the direction of whether they’re actually spending more than they’re due to receive throughout the year.  More

It also has a fun feature where you can add a description and cost of an item you’re desperate to buy if you could only afford it. By analysing monthly income over expenditure the system gives you a constant update on how far away from your dream you are based on any surplus funds accruing.  More

There are a lot of receipt and expense trackers out there and so it’s refreshing to come across a new one that’s got something different to shout about. It could be described as lemon fresh but then again it already has, by the site itself.   More
