Personal Financial Management Tool
- Personal finance is your overall picture—from your earnings to your investments, and even including your long-term financial goals.
- Money management is the day-to-day stuff—what you budget, how much you spend, and where your money goes.
Need a budget? Then you need Money Manager.
Want to know how much money you have coming in and how much you are spending each month? Want a quick snapshot of how your money is being spent? Then you’ll love what Money Manager has to offer.
The first step is having an understanding of your cash flow and spending habits, and from there you can quickly create and monitor budgets. And, you know what? Budgeting is actually kind of fun with Money Manager!
If you have credit cards with different issuers, checking and savings with one credit union, but a certificate or money market account with another, loans from several different lenders and a few modest investments, then Money Manger can help you. Basically, the more accounts you have in different places, the more need you have for a PFM tool because it gets harder and harder to keep everything organized.
