I was really excited about my app review today. Well, I was when my friend Beth got me all hyped up about camera+. You really need to see her iPhone review of that app. She did a great job. It really makes me sad that my device(HTC Inspire) does not work with it.
I know this sounds like a huge departure from what Beth was reviewing. Chalk it up to a temper tantrum on my part. Insert sticking my tongue out at lack of getting something I want. I am reviewing an app that helps me be more frugal and aware of money. Since many of the projects you will see here as I grow will be focusing on ways of making our money go further. Reusing, upcycling and using up stuff to its fullest are importand to me. That includes money.
In the Google play store it is called EEBA and I have copied their blurb and pasted it here. Please don’t have me drawn and quartered for my technique. I just think they have a very accurate description.
Easy Envelope Budget Aid:
EEBA (the Easy Envelope Budget Aid) keeps you on budget with virtual envelopes! EEBA is a personal/household finance app for money management and budget tracking. (Registration required for sync feature) Stay on budget with virtual envelopes! EEBA, the Easy Envelope Budget Aid
I use this app all the time. I am including their screenshots. Once again taken from Google play store. What? You thought I would show you my finances. No Way! I love the professional product and services they offer. The upgrade even has stuff you just have to try to believe.
So, long post growing longer here. I figured out how much I have to spend on groceries, gas, fast food, restaurants, school lunch, entertainmen, clothing/accessories and included a spend category for those things we really don’t think we spend money on. These are my categories. I also planned for little things like Redbox rentals. Who wants to borrow money from MasterCard because we rented 4 movies too many this month and now we don’t have enough gas to get us to work on Monday? Then this magical app shows me how much I have left to spend. This thing will even tell me that I spent a little fast at the beginning. I should be mindful that what I have left has to stretch for x amount of days left until pay period refills.
I could go on and on, but I hope you have found something about this app review that you find useful.
This app is the rare one that I will give 5 purple g’s to. You guys have gone above and beyond over there at EEBA
Verdict: Run, don’t walk to get this app.
Oh, and go over to Beth’s and tell her about it also.
