    Hear a lot about this personal finance tracking product on Dave Ramsey (can I mention him on here? )
    Have used Quick File for self employed accounts but need to use something for personal spending to help stick to a budget.
    searched the archive but only came up with Microsoft Money.
    Is that seriously all there is?

    Search here for Microsoft Money. That will display many alternatives and opinions on them.

    BankTree http://www.banktree.co.uk/
    AceMoney http://www.mechcad.net/products/acemoney/personal-finance-software-quicken-alternative.shtml
    Moneyline http://www.brothersoft.com/moneyline-personal-finance-software-512627.html

    I would go for BankTree or YNAB if I started from scratch.

    I have been wondering this too, I love dave ramsey and his method for snowballing away debt but I need some software as doing a paper budget each month is getting very time consuming.
    Everydollar is also of course free and the YNAB etc is not.
    Any recommendations on free alternatives, or I guess I could use the everydollar one and just assum that $ means £ for my purposes.

    I started with EveryDollar and ignored the fact that it said $ instead of £. It was really helpful.

    After getting the hang of it, I started my own Excel spreadsheet on the same principle but with more functionality, like keeping a running total of my bank balance.

    But I needed EveryDollar to start off. My Excel spreadsheet still looks a lot like it.

    YNAB every time. Have been using it for about 3 years now and wouldn't be without it. I know you have to pay for it, but it's worth every penny.

    Quick question.
    Can I ask how you managed to sign up for every dollar? It's asking me for a zip code.

    Thanks
    Paid off all of my debts........except my mortgage. Getting there. Saving, saving, saving now.
