This Hallowe'en why not confront the evil spectre of money management head on? Sounds scary and you'd rather be partying? Well this is one broomstick you might want to catch.
Some online wizardry is making managing your finances much more entertaining and way less time consuming than it used to be. Imagine a world where the ghosts of unpaid bills are finally laid to rest; where the phantoms of accidental overdrafts never rear their ugly heads again; and no matter how tight on time, disorganised or bored you are, you stay in control of your finances.
That world exists thanks to the latest in online personal finance and budget tools. These state-of -art interfaces can give you a 360 degree view of your finances every time you log on for free! They let you sync all your transactions, analyse what you've been up to and get a full picture of your spending. You can arrange for reminders to be sent to your email or phone, so there's no way you can forget to pay boring bills. And you can benefit from money-saving tips and budget tools that help you plan ahead.
All this has become possible because more and more of our finances can be dealt with online. Banking, utilities, investments (if we're lucky enough to have them) even our mortgage payments can be managed and monitored online. Of course, we can do this independently. But imagine how great it is to have it all pulled together in one simple hub? Just one password and one site to view everything you need to know, in glorious technicolour.
To date, this free online personal finance software has mainly been available in the US, where there has been a massive take up over the past few years. The good news is that home-grown talent such as Money Dashboard and Kublax are bringing all these benefits to UK shores for free too. Such interfaces are securely set up to help you manage all your money and avoid the financial horrors that are lurking in dark corners. All it takes is a little bit of your time to set things up in the first instance, then for the minimum of effort you can stay in control of your finances and receive money saving tips too.
All sound too good to be true? With Hallowe'en around the corner of course you're going to be wary, but there's no reason to be spooked. Why not find out more about home finance software now
