Technology is a great means to simplify your money life. There are many account aggregation tools available on the market that will help organize transaction details from your bank and expense accounts into one convenient and secured location. Most of these apps are free and available for download to your home computer, tablet or smartphone. Security is important. Fortunately, many of these tools receive just a one-way feed of data the same way accounting software does and are usually encrypted. Budget monitors and spending trackers are popular features of these apps. You can impose a simple automated or customized budget complete with easy to use rules to help you with household bookkeeping. At a glance, you can view spending trend-lines over the course of weeks or months to help you stay on track with spending goals. You can also set up notification alerts to remind you of special dates like savings targets and variable payment due dates.
