A good budget tells you how to manage money now. But what about where you’re headed next?
You’ve got some goals stashed away—a home, a car, a private island. How can you better manage your cashflow today to make certain your dreams materialize?
Say hola to HelloWallet, a new service that helps you organize your finances and fashion what you might call the Mother Budget, a spending plan that starts where you are now—and moves you forward.
Like other budgeting sites, you can monitor your daily spending, credit card balances, savings, etc. But HelloWallet adds a personal dimension with tools like Wallet Grower, which helps tie your current spending behavior to your future goals—so you can build long-term net worth.
It also has a Personal Shopper, which hunts for financial deals—better rates, cards, etc.—based on what you say you want (not hidden partnerships with those companies).
It’s free for 30 days, and $9 a month thereafter. But they don’t charge you a dime until you decide to commit. Whenever you’re ready to move to that big girl budget.
You Grow Girl. Is your budget hooked up to your big picture goals?
