You Can Bank On It, I'm Hopeless When It Comes To The Checkbook
I'm able to do a lot of things on my computers, but I am just hopeless when it comes to using a rich program like Quicken. Yes, I'm still using it because it is all set up and connects to all my banking accounts. That's all fine and good, but I needed to have a way to keep track of my check register using my computer rather than writing in some dinky little paper register in my checkbook. I mean, really who writes checks anymore anyway?
Entering Now, MoneyLine
So, I finally got fed up with the paper register and found a great free program called Moneyline. There is a Pro version of it, but since we already have Quicken it would have been redundant. I just wanted a register I can read where I can easily input categories, payees, etc. I'm not an affiliate or anything, I just wanted to share my experience with MoneyLine and let you decide if it's right for you.
Even free, the MoneyLine program does have the capabilities you would expect from a personal finance software. All in all, it took me just a few hours to get it set up and personalized the way I wanted it. The thing is, I need to have it easy for both myself and my husband. It's going to work where either I do all the data entry for this new register format and he just hands me the receipts so I can do that. Or, he might be able to do the entries himself. He could have it on his computer too, but there's all that "syncing" stuff and it would be a pain in the behind. No matter what, it is going to be easier to enter, look neater and easy to work with this streamlined program.
Sorry I'm not going into great detail about MoneyLine, but...
