Personal computers are absolutely wonderful for keeping our financial household straight. There are many financial software applications available for keeping our checkbooks balanced.
Over the years, I’ve used the two main personal financial software powerhouses on the market, Quicken and MSMoney. Both are fine personal financial software programs, and quite easy to set up and use.
But they come with an initial cost. Anywhere from $50.00 on up. MSMoney is about the same price. However, Microsoft has discontinued this software title. So, you may be able to pick up a used copy for a few dollars less. In fact, I’ve seen Microsoft Money 2004 Standard on Amazon.com for as little $19.00.
Or, you can make the switch to Linux and install a FREE personal financial software application.
