One of my New Year resolutions was to get our finances under control - I used to be quite diligent, but things have fallen by the wayside recently....
Anyway, I'd like:
- Something I can track spending with on my (android) phone, and also allow DH to have access on his phone.
- Software which I can allocate money to in various categories, e.g. "groceries", "play money", "bills" etc.
- Any other useful features?
So far, I have heard good things about the "You Need A Budget" software, and I might give the free-trial a go. Are there any more recommendations?

I have been on YNAB for just over a week and cannot recommend it strongly enough! The support from the forums is fantastic. There is a 34 day trial which gives a decent amount if time.

Thanks guys - I think I'll give You Need a Budget a go - after all I have nothing to lose with the free trial

"Hey, come here a second," my mum said as she replaced the book in my hands with a wooden spoon covered in what I prayed was red sauce.
