The Best Apps to Track Your Financial Life in 2019
December 10, 2018
The new year is a time to begin again — to reflect on what you’ve accomplished, get organized and set new goals. For many of us, that means working on our finances. According to a 2017 Fidelity study, approximately one-third of people planned to make a financial resolution going into 2018. The most popular resolutions included saving more, paying down debt and spending less.
Despite the hope and good intentions a fresh calendar brings, statistics indicate that less than 10 percent of people accomplish their New Year’s resolutions. Financial goals, which often feel overwhelming at the beginning, are especially easy to neglect. To make your New Year’s resolutions last beyond February, it’s important that you set realistic goals and implement a tracking system to hold yourself accountable.
To help get you started, we’ve compiled a list of the best apps to help you monitor your financial life. From tracking daily expenses to creating better budgets, these apps will help you meet your 2019 financial goals.
Whether you want to get out of debt, save more, learn to invest or simply streamline your finances, there are a number of financial New Year’s resolutions to aspire to. The key is creating specific, actionable goals that you can measure — like paying off your car loan, putting $1,000 into an emergency fund or saving $3,000 to take a dream trip. Check out our favorite apps above to get started and make 2019 the year your resolutions become reality.
