Tracking your transactions is a great way to monitor your spending. Using a good budgeting app will encourage you to change your financial habits for the better.
The best apps show how much you’re spending and alert you where you’re going over. While these apps automate a lot of work from the pen-and-paper method, they also help you be more pro-active in budgeting.
