Simple and Effective apps that help save money
Updated: May 22
I love making money. In the right conditions, what you earn is an exact reflection of how hard you worked. However, saving money can be difficult. There are five apps that I use on my phone that promote savings.
1. Mint is that girl. What I love about the Mint App is that allows me to see everything in place! I like that I can see my credit score, my bank accounts, and upcoming bills. Mint also tracks your spending and a feature that allows you to create your budgets.
2. Robinhood is an investment app that allows you to buy and sell stocks, EFTs, and cryptocurrencies. The app is beginner friendly and very affordable. If you interested in buying stock I highly recommend using the Robinhood app because it allows you to control your portfolio and there no fee for stock trading. I wish have started investing earlier. Especially with this app.
3. Your bank app. It sounds silly to say but too many of us overlook our bank app when it comes to saving. Honestly, most of us should be setting up regular transfers from our checking to our savings. So whether that's weekly, biweekly or monthly, setting up regular transfers takes away the headache of you having to do it manually.
4. Truebill is an app that is similar to Mint. The app allows users to track their accounts and spending. Truebill has some really good features. The app will negotiate down your bills if you sign up for their premium. You can also create saving goals. One feature I like is that the Truebill tells me when next I get paid and how much. Visually this app is amazing and makes it very fun to save and be responsible
5. Turbo is much like the Mint app, which is an all in one app. Here you can see your credit score, debt, and debt to income ratio. What's also nice about the Turbo app is that it gives you the option to create a goal - like saving for a new car and helps track the progress. I am more partial to an app like Turbo and Mint because they allow you to maximize your time.
