Keeping your spending in check is a big part of making your budget work but Level Money is a lifesaver when you don’t have time to fuss over your dollars and cents. This app is a mobile spending meter that tells you how much money you can afford to spending without forcing you to slog through different budgeting categories or detailed expense breakdowns.
Level Money is free and to use it, you just sync it up with your checking account. You plug in how much money you need to set aside for fixed expenses and your savings goals. From there, the app tells you how much of your balance is spendable and how much money you’ll end up with at the end of the month based on your current cash flow. It’s a no-muss, no-fuss way to make sure you’re always staying in the black.
With the right tools, even the most inexperienced budgeting newbies can master the art of balancing spending with saving. These three apps are the best of the best if you need a free way to manage your cash that’s not going to tie up too much of your time.
