According to studies, most people are more worried about saving for their next vacation rather than their retirement. We also prioritize paying the wrong bills and money management in 2019 has become increasingly more severe. For these reasons, it’s important to use the best money managing apps so that you can save money for retirement, vacation, and essentials.
If you’re familiar with doing your taxes on Quickbooks or TurboTax then the Mint App built by the same company is perfect for you. The app is loaded with money managing features. Organize all your finances by directly connecting your bank and credit cards, monthly bills, and finances. Mint will give you real-time updates to your credit score, let you know what bills are due and what you can afford too. The app will even learn about you and let you know what you’re doing right and what you’re doing wrong so you can gain more control over your money.
With your money under control, it’s always a good idea to look into investing some of it. We have two favorite investing apps, Acorns and Robinhood. Acorns is for those of us who don’t know too much about stocks but want to put some money in. Every leftover cent to the nearest dollar from purchases gets invested directly into a portfolio of stocks - with this you only need to sit back and watch your change grow. Robinhood is a little more advanced - but still free! Robinhood even gives you a free stock if you sign up through a referral. If there’s a stock you’re interested in buying you can navigate to it from your app and purchase it in minutes, all for free. These investing apps have made investing easy not scary!
