For a Good Time Managing Your Money, Call on These Apps

Kiplinger, February 14, 2024 — “Budgeting, saving and getting out of debt aren’t normally associated with fun, but these eight apps aim to make personal finance less of a grind for you,” writes Marguerita Cheng, CFP® Pro, explaining, “Can there be anything fun about budgeting and money management? Well, for many people, the answer is no. Personal finance and money management is all about discipline — preventing yourself from spending anyhow you like for the sake of your future. In essence, you embrace present pain for the sake of your future pleasure.

“But what if budgeting and money management could also be fun? That’s exactly what some innovative personal finance apps are trying to do. Either through gamification, visualization, rewards and penalties and/or saving while spending, you can have fun while managing your money and preparing for a better future.”
