Graph View and spending detail pop up in Quicken personal finance software.Quicken 2013 personal finance software has a great budget feature that lets you see and work with your budget two ways. The Graph View shows a thick line graph for each category you budget for, revealing spending vs. budgeted, and you can enter planned monthly spending very quickly. The Annual View lets you get more detailed, and is useful for entering expenses that vary from month to month or that only happen quarterly or annually. Here's my tutorial for setting up a budget with Quicken 2013, which is packed with tips and a little extra information to help you understand the process.

Here's another tip: if you've been thinking about buying Quicken 2012 because the price is lower, don't do it. The 2013 budget is far more flexible.
