Like many of you, I need to setup a budget. Here in the United States, the economy is suffering and times are tough financially for many people. With so much uncertainty out there today, it’s more important than ever to keep a strict eye on where your money is going. You may have setup a budget before, but it’s probably a safe bet to say that it needs to be updated to match what’s going on right now. The last thing I want is to be stressed out when working on something this important, and PearBudget is a great budgeting and expense tracking tool because it simplifies the process of creating and maintaining a budget.

You can customize your budget however you’d like, and it only takes a short amount of time each week to keep your information current. All of your data is secure and stored away safely for you, and if you ever want to use it in a program like Excel, then you can export your budget as a CSV file. Of course, your data is your data, so this is only fair. PearBudget costs a few dollars per month, but a free 30-day trial exists so that you can get hooked on the service. Now you’ll be able to easily budget the money that you’ll actually spend on PearBudget.
