3 apps to help you stay on budgetBefore the holiday shopping season gets into full swing, it's a good time to get your finances in order. In this Tech Minute, CNET's Sharon Profis suggests three apps to help you track your expenses and stay on budget.
[MUSIC] If you want to manage your budget with a family member, check out good budget. The app uses the old envelope method to help you allocate funds to different budget areas. It's a great option for those who benefit from manually logging their Expenses. The app doesn't automatically pull data from your bank account so it forces you to be aware of how you spend your money. If you want a bit more discipline for how you spend your money day to day check out Level Money. The app grabs data from your bank accounts and gives you daily, monthly and weekly spending goals. Level's design is intentionally very minimal. You can easily see how much you've spent and how much more you can comfortably spend each day or week. And finally, we can't talk about budget apps without mentioning [INAUDIBLE] That makes expense tracking painless by automatically downloading transactions from your bank account. From there mint.com can analyze your spending and offer tools for creating a budget or setting a goal. In San Francisco, I am Sharon Profis. Cnet.com for CBS news. [NOISE]
