How Technology Can Help You Keep Finances in Order - Brett Clawson - Blog

How Technology Can Help You Keep Finances in Order

Keeping finances in order is an ongoing struggle for most people. Some people simply have trouble sticking to a budget while others may not even know where to begin. In either situation, using technology to stay on top of your financial status can be an easier way to track how well you are managing your money. You may already be doing some of the tips below, but by making a conscious effort to integrate technology into your money management, you will soon be on your way to financial security. It often only takes a few minutes out of your day to manage your money successfully with technology.

Use Banking and Loan Apps

If you have a checking or savings account, you likely have the app from your financial institution downloaded on your phone. However, it is important that you open those apps periodically to make sure that no suspicious charges have been made to any of your accounts; this is important for credit card accounts as well. It can be a headache to address a financial discrepancy a long time after it happens, so it is best to address any fraudulent charges as soon as they occur. You can often set up an automatic text alert every time your account is used so that you can closely monitor it throughout the day.

If you have any type of loan payments that you make through a financial institution, you should monitor that closely as well. Be sure that you are on track to paying off your loan on time and that your payment is going through correctly every month. Research how much interest you are paying and see if it would be beneficial to pay off those debts earlier to avoid excessive interest charges.

Read About Financial Principles

Your phone is a tiny computer that you carry in your pocket. Use it to research financial principles and tips that can help you become financially stable. Do not waste your free time mindlessly scrolling through social media; use apps like Crediful to constantly improve your financial knowledge. In this way, you can be your own financial planner and know the best steps to take in becoming a financially independent individual. Your future self will thank you for your vast expanse of knowledge. 

Use a Budgeting App

Keeping up with every single paper receipt you ever get is old news. Instead, use a easy budgeting mobile app to input your expenses and see exactly where your money is going. Many of these apps have charts and graphs that give you insight into what areas you spend the most in. Seeing it in a visual format can help you see where you can cut back and where you are doing well staying within your personal budget. You can easily type in the amount of each purchase you make into an app in just a few seconds.

Use Your Calculator as Your Shop

When you go to do your weekly grocery shopping, it can be so easy to make small impulse purchases that add up very quickly. A smart spending habit is to use a calculator as you shop. Type in the amount of money you are spending on each item you are adding to your cart. You will soon see where you are impulse buying and will not be as surprised when you get to the cash register. You will also think twice before adding something very expensive to your cart; ask yourself if you really need this item right now.

Enroll in Automatic Draft Bill Payment

Late fees are money that is literally wasted. There is no good reason to ever pay for late fees, and having your monthly expenses on automatic draft can help you avoid this unnecessary expense. Be sure that you are monitoring what you are actually spending, however, and do not let a bill go paid without you checking to make sure the amount is correct. When you set up an automatic draft, also ask if there is a convenience fee attached to this service and determine if it is worth it for you.

Keeping your finances in order is easier than ever with all the resources that technology brings. If you have put off budgeting and tracking your expenses because you thought it would take too much time, think again. You can use the tiny computer in your pocket to take care of all your financial needs so that you never have to wonder what your financial status is.
