I just found your web-site. You are doing a great job! I have tried to use Quicken to keep track of our budget but in never seemed to work. Our number's were never the same. Could you tell me how you work your budget on your computer software. How long does it take you each day to fill it in our do you do it weekly?



Debt R Us,

I love Quicken, obviously, but it's awful for budgeting. I use Excel for that; in particular, I use my Spending Plan spreadsheet.

On an average week, I sit down with my spending plan spreadsheet perhaps twice -- once mid-week, and once on weekends. Drop me an email and I'll be happy to talk it over with you . . ..

My financial life began turning around when I took responsibility for it.
