I often get the question from students about what budgeting apps they should use to track their spending. I would love to hear from teachers about apps they have experience with.

https://www.mint.com/ by Intuit seems to continue to be a popular budgeting app. I remember years ago when it first came on the scene. It was very basic, but now it has all of the bells and whistles.

YNAB = youneedabudget.com
I’ve heard nothing but great things about You Need a Budget!

I also use a program in class that is sponsored by a local credit union called Banzai! (http://teachbanzai.com). Once students go through the simulation and activities, they have the opportunity to keep their accounts and use the budgeting tool on their own.

I show my students Mint because my son uses it and loves it. When they see it a lot of students start using it, they really like it. Easy to use and link to their accounts plus I use it in my wealth management class because it also links to your investments and lets you know how they are doing.
I have heard of a new on called budget ease. It also looks good and would be worth showing to give them a choice. I like to have my students make their own choices and decisions on what works for them, then they are more likely to use it! Thus I do not tell them about only one program.
