Any budgeting software recommendations?

Marketplace Staff Jun 14, 2013

Question:

I’ve just completed my graduate program studies and landed a job. I’d like to reevaluate my budget, now that I’m not longer a student, but I want to find competitive, user-friendly budget software that is compatible with Mac and allows me to manage all accounts in one place (checking/credit/money market/ira). Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi! Most budgeting software programs on the market are mac compatible. I’d advise shopping about a bit and road-testing them to see what fits for you. I’m going to direct you to a great Forbes article from last year that lists 12 good options.
