If this sounds extremely simple, it's because it is! The truth is: managing a budget is REALLY REALLY simple. A lot of people make a lot of money by first telling you that this a complex problem and then selling you complex solutions this solve this problem, but the reality is that budget management essentially boils down to the following requirement:
money spent < money earned
As long as this is the case, that the amount of money you spent is smaller than the amount of money you earn, you have your budget (and thus your personal finances) under control. It is this simple philosophy that is the core idea behind 'Left to spend
'. It is budget management at its core. It is a personal finance app stripped of all features. Let this liberate you!
How it works:
To use 'Left to spend
', all you need to do is set up a daily allowance that you KNOW won't break your budget. To calculate this amount, simply subtract all your monthly expenses (bills) from your monthly income and divide the result by 31. Every day this amount will be added to your total allowance. Whenever you spend money you simply open 'Left to spend
' and enter the amount, which is then subtracted from your total allowance. If your total allowance is running low, you need to slow down your spending and wait for your allowances to accumulate. As long as you never get below 0, you'll never have to worry about money again.
