”When are salaries checking in?” – that is the question on almost everyone’s mind at the beginning of the year following the Christmas holiday splurging. You have to account for every coin spent and there is no room to enjoy little pleasures. Coffee or movie plans with your friends are shelved until the end of the month. If you are like most, the eagerness to see January turn its back may lead you to forget about planning a budget for the month to come.Chances are, you’ll end up in the same predicament month after month.
With the new Expense Manager app, you can now keep track of your spending habits and better plan your monthly budget. The app is developed and powered by Shimba Technologies and is available for download in the Nokia Store. Once you launch the app, you are taken to the main screen, which has a tab for expenses and a guide.
When you tap the expenses tab to add a new expense it prompts you to create a category for it and you can add as many categories as you want depending on your expense. For example, if you are going shopping for your groceries, you can create a category with the same name and under it, you will list all the items you are buying as well as their costs.
The Expense Manager app breaks down your expenditure on a monthly basis and to view your past expenses or add a new expense, all you need to do swipe either to the right or left depending the month you want to view. Depending on how often you key in your expenses, it will allow you to gauge your spending habits over a number of months. This helps you identify times when you either go over your intended spending budget and helps guide your spending in the coming months.
So this year, plan your budget spend for the month and keep track of your expenses with the help of the Expense Manager app…it’ll keep you from saying the three words we all dread to utter: “I am broke” and maybe even help you save towards the next holiday splurge.
