Home budget software

January 28th, 2008 · 8 Comments

Update: I found this ridiculous thread on another blog (200+ comments long) that details other people’s trials in this similar search

Anyone out there have a good method for producing and tracking a lightweight home budget on Mac OS X?

I’ve had limited tries with Excel; but figured there must be other apps that are tailor made for this purpose (that might be a bit more user friendly).

Please leave any notes/suggestions in the comments.

    There is GnuCash if you’re looking for open source, but whether it is lightweight or not depends on your definition of lightweight.

    thanks lambic – mainly looking for something that’s very user friendly that will make me want to keep updating/reviewing/etc.

    I use iBank. It’s not the easiest app to figure out. It came with my time/billing app iBiz. look at the screen shots online (versiontracker maybe) tell me if thats what yer after.
    I’ve tried a few.

    iBanks budgeting features are VERY lacking…you can’t even print a budget report!

    I use MoneyWell 1.4.8 because it does the buckets(think envelopes) and offers the latest in finance software(matching, direct-downloads, EZ reconcile).

    mint.com, is a secure online budget app.

    mint looks amazing — but no Canadian access yet sadly.
