This week, I added a new financial program. I have used Quicken for the last 10 years and have always loved it. However, if you are budgeting your money or trying to save for certain things, Quicken really lacked. It is great for tracking money after you spend it, but as for managing the spending it just would not do it. Well, Greg and I have always been a fan of the Envelope system for money. Basically it is easy, you set aside money for certain things, put the money in an envelope labeled as such and when the money is gone it is gone. You have to wait to get paid again to have more money. I actually know lots of people who do this and it is super when you have limited money or you just want to save money. However, if you are Internet savy and do everything online, it was hard to do. Well, introducing, (drum roll) Mvelopes Personal!! Finally a program to actually give you the means to manage your spending before you spend it! Right now I am on a free 2 week trial so I will let you all know how we like it. So far though, it is thumbs up. I am hoping to get rid of Quicken by the end of the year!

Hi! I am a woman who loves to do a lot of things. I am very adventurous because I love trying new things! When I go to a restaurant I don't mind ordering something new at all. I mean my new favorite dish may be on that menu somewhere just waiting on me to try it! I also love to travel. I have been to a lot of different places and I love to take photos and tell about my journeys. While on my journey of trying new things, or traveling to new places, or just living my life; I occasionally want to jot some things down. This is my jotting down spot. I consider a lot of things, and hopefully you will enjoy reading about them. If you don't then just move along. No need to comment and be all ugly. I mean this is my place, not yours. Mama always says, "if you can't say something nice, then don't say anything at all." So let's just keep that in mind!! I do welcome feedback and encouragement though. If you have something that will help my blog out then please leave me a comment. Thanks, and it is so good to meet you!! View all posts by Mary Beth's Considerations
