As an independent contractor for ESL companies that I work for
and as a blogger, I’ve started using the following apps and sites to manage my funds.
I have so many goals for this year, it’s not even funny. I want to buy a home, travel to Thailand, go back to acting classes, get headshots done, and prepare to begin graduate school in 2020. Just thinking about how I’m going to pay and prepare for all of this is so daunting! I’ve been praying for ways to manage what I do earn while preparing for what I want to earn.
So, I found several new apps I’ve been using for a little while now. So, thought I would share them with you all.

This app helps me to save money towards my goals and set aside tax money. This app allows you to create any goal and save in multiple ways.
This app helps me to invest as little or as much as I want. This app allows you to start a retirement fund, open a debit account, get cash back, open a custodial account for your children and so much more. It even comes with a tool to see the potential growth of your money.
I currently invest in companies that I use every day. (Netflix, Mastercard, Chipotle, Costco, etc) I use this app to create my rainy day fund. Sign up and get $5.
I use this one for budgeting my coins and making sure I can have fun with my money too. It helps me to create any category I need and determine how much is going to be spent. Most categories I’ve turned into Funds. Using Funds allows you to prepare for a future expense such as a downpayment on a home.
I also us the Fund feature to see unused money roll over to the next months budget.
You can do so much just using the free features of this app. If you want you bank transactions to sync with the app, you can do this for $10.75 a month/ $129 a month billed annually.
I signed up for this about a month ago. I am still working through it, but I love the format she uses to help others tackle money problems. I pay $10 a month and I get full membership access to videos, expert advice, bundles (forms to help you get it and keep it together), the forums, and so much more.
I hope these apps and sites will be helpful for you and your financial journey.
Talk to you soon!
