Recommended Spending Tracker App for Misc. Purchases?
« on: December 27, 2016, 11:00:16 AM »
I'm looking for some kind of App that I can use to keep a running tally of my remaining monthly budget for non-fixed, discretionary type purchases. Any recommendations?

I use Mint.com to log and track all spending. However, I allow myself a certain amount of $ every month for Discretionary spending on things like Restaurants, social events, sports tickets, clothes, bars, fast food, etc etc. What I am looking for is some kind of App that I can deduct every one of these purchases from the monthly total and quickly see how much has been spent and what is left. (I know Mint has this type of capability when you look at "Other" and total monthly spending, but I'm looking for something else.

I think such an app would be beneficial because 1) It should be easily accessible showing exactly how much of this Miscellaneous budget is remaining, and 2) It will reinforce the budget during the data input.

Any suggestions??

ynab would work for this.  it's really easy to add transactions on the go, including cash.
