  1. I am a huge fan of Toshl! You add in your income and expenses, and can tag each expense and keep track of your overall spending. Here’s what I love about it:

    • Web access and mobile devices
    • Support for multiple users: both my wife and I use the same account to keep track of our joint expenses!
    • Recurring items: set up all your monthly expenses to automatically happen: insurance, mortgage, car payment, loan payments, cable bill, phone bill, etc.
    • set budgets like a monthly food budget. As you add expenses tagged with ‘food’ you can see what is left in your budget for the month!
    • carry-forward budgets! If you don’t use up the whole budget, you get the balance carried forward into the next-month’s budget. Super helpful when you are saving up for a big purchase!
    • Automatic monthly PDF reports of your activity!
    • Fun interactive charts and graphs on the web version.

    Plus, the service has a fun personality with little monster characters that make the expense tracking less tedious and more entertaining. If you sign up for the paid service, they’ll send you a t-shirt and lots of great stickers.
