I used excel for a long time, but recently got the trial for MS Money Plus. I don't see why every financially responsible person doesn't have it or another similar program. It retails for $30, but I'm going to check the campus bookstore to see if I can get it a lot cheaper. Still, $30 is very reasonable. And I kinda halfway trust Microsoft
This is a great point! I actually got an email alert this week about my grocery spending being UNUSUALLY HIGH! It was.....we have been eating HIGH off the hog. I took and international cooking class, so I have been whipping up gourmet treats in the kitchen.
So I got an alert saying I spent about $400 more in the last thirty days than I normally do. WHEW! Well it is short lived....I go back to school in a week. SO the family eats whatever I can cook in under 20 minutes!
