A lot of people make a New Year resolution to tighten up their spending, put together a budget or reduce debt. Planning financial resolutions is very time consuming and once you have a plan, how do you go about evaluating whether you're sticking to it week after week? Budget software and personal finance software, including online and smart phone apps, can make your New Year resolution to get a handle on your money very easy. Plug in some numbers to set up a budget and then make changes to the budget plan to immediately see if you have enough income to cover expenses and savings.
Debt reduction software shows you a number of ways to plan for reducing debt, and there are apps that find online deals for you and that will ensure that bills are paid on time so you never pay another late fee. And, don't forget to take a look at options for free tax software that walks you through completing and filing your tax return so you don't have to pay to have this done.
