In these times of world financial crisis we all try to be more careful about expenses, and a good way to do it is by using an accounting software tool.
HomeBank is the perfect tool to manage your personal finances. You can configure multiple accounts and keep track of your income and all your expenses, month after month. Each transaction includes details about date, quantity, payee, and more. Plus they can all be classified into different categories for more comfortable data handling.
HomeBank is pretty easy to use even if this is the first time you've used an accounting software, because it doesn't use any technical terms that only economy gurus can understand. In a way it feels like managing your bank account online. I also like the degree of freedom HomeBank grants its users, in the sense that you can add as many accounts as you want, create as many categories as you need and keep track of all your bills and expenses.
On the downside, being such an open program means that the first time you run HomeBank you have to adapt it to your needs, and that can take a long time. Also, I missed one small feature: the ability to schedule monthly payments.
Use HomeBank to manage and track your expenses and you might be able to save a little money by the end of the month.
