Budget Tracker is one of the leading free budget management tools available for taking control of your personal finances and getting out of debt. We've created this software to allow people on a tight budget to track and understand their finances in a simple way that helps them to reduce their debt and, hopefully, become debt free over time.
With Budget Tracker you manage your expenses by month. Each month you enter in your expenses into a category. Expense categories include rent or mortgage, food, utilities, entertainment, cell phone, cable, medical, clothing, and so on. You can also enter in your own budget categories allowing you to customize the program for your own expense needs. For example, perhaps you spend a considerable amount of your salary day care. You can add day care as a category and track it as a special expense. Each month you can then see where your money is going. Are you spending too much on clothing? Perhaps much more of your budget spending is on entertainment than you thought. These can then be areas where you start to budget your money in order to save and lower your expenses and manage your personal finances better.
Budget Tracker assists you in tracking your expenses with running averages of each of your monthly categories. You can see how your spending is over a long time and also see how you are improving or lowering your spending in certain areas. You can also plan ahead by seeing which months tend to run the highest. Planning your savings for tough months like December with Christmas and a high heating bill or July with vacation and a high air conditioning bill can help you from going into debt. Reports are available to print on your budget. Also, help included in the program.
Get a grip and take control of your personal finances with Budget tracker. This program is free, so at least you won't have to worry about how much you spend on it!
Also, be sure to check back now and again. We try to keep the program updated and to add new features when we think up something that would be helpful.
Budget Tracker is
designed to be easy to enter all your expense data. All the averages and monthly
totals are on the main screen so you can get a quick view of your personal
finances. Other data that is
tracked includes an overall monthly average expenditure as well as the
highest month and the lowest month. In the end, Budget Tracker’s goal is to
help you get a grip on where your money is going allowing you to
better manage your finances.
New features to Budget Tracker v2.0 include:
Custom Fields: This allows to to track your own expenses more closely. We've set up some
fields that you may want to use (i.e. Clothing), but you may not want to track expenses Tuition or
Prescriptions. Now you can easily make those changes in Budget Tracker.
Monthly Print Out: There is an option to print a monthly expense report.
Improved Help: We've tried to improve the help section of Budget Tracker so its even easier to use.
