I have been playing with a fairly new personal finance application put together by Chris from Build My Budget. Sometimes, Mint.com and other personal finance budgeting applications do a little too much for some users. Build My Budget has a simple, easy-to-understand interface. it is a great application for people who want to build a monthly budget and stick to it.
There is a blog and forum to interact with other users, but the best part about the website is the massive educational center with a wealth of information about how to budget and WHY you should budget.
Chris, the creator of BuildMyBudget.com, was a successful financial advisor, but he left his corporate job behind, because he found himself selling products that he didn’t believe in to people who didn’t need them. He saw the need for people to get on a written budget. Many of his clients didn’t even know where their money was going on a monthly basis, and this was his inspiration for Build My Budget.
They don’t have the marketing budget of many of these other personal finance applications, so give it a try and come back to give me your feedback.
