Hello everyone, given the success MFP has given me by being able to quantify what I am eating I was wondering if anyone here knew any good apps for tracking how much money you spend?

    I use Mint, from Intuit. You can link your bank accounts, bills, credit cards, and it tracks automatically. Set budgets and get alerts when you reach the budget limits, reminders when a bill is coming due, etc.

    I use GNUCash as my electronic registers: http://www.gnucash.org/


    For online apps, aside from electronic banking:

    https://www.mint.com/
    https://www.personalcapital.com/


    I haven't liked it. But, there's a lot of people who use YNAB (paid subscription): https://www.youneedabudget.com/


    I would also recommend taking a stroll over to http://www.mrmoneymustache.com/ for some good reading. There's some things which are a bit extreme. But, he has some good articles, and advice.

    Check your bank's online banking software/site too, they often have a budget app/wizard included

    Mint is pretty handy for setting limits and tracking your spending per category.
