So we have some steep financial goals for 2012.
The kind where you aim for the stars and hopefully hit the moon.
But if we stick to budget peeeerfectly and I do mean PERFECTLY and get one or two lucky breaks, we just might be able to hit those goals straight between the eyes.
I've been using different programs to budget including mint.com and my own spreadsheet I made up.
These have been good but far from perfect and I quit both out of frustration recently.
Being without any program(spending in the dark) is worse than a frustrating program.
So I decided to open back up my mint.com account, and THEN.....
I discovered the PEAR Budget.
It's first month is free. So I decided to try it. (It's only like 5 dollars a month after that.)
So far... LOOOVE IT!
So much that a put it on my side bar. Silly? Oh well. Click on it and CHECK IT OUT.
Very simple. Like REALLY simple.
My stress levels are now down 10 notches, maybe 50, knowing that I'm controlling my money. Or at least aware of how uncontrolled I am.
YESSSS. So satisfied. :) Try it. You don't even have to enter a credit card to try it out for the first month. I hate that. Okay that's all just thought I'd pass the word along because when I find a good company I don't mind at all sharing. Maybe it will make your 2012 budgeting goals stick better this year too.
