    Debt / Payment Tracking

    Debt / Payment Tracking 11th Dec 17 at 11:29 PM
    Hi,

    Has anyone got a good way of tracking their debts?
    Like who, how much, last contact, payment made, balance, projected end date etc?

    I'm looking for something to do this on - I don't want pen and paper because I misplace everything and I can't afford to buy the word/excel package.

    TIA

    Lots on here use YNAB.

    It is a pay for service, but comes well recomended, think it works out at around a fiver a month (billed annually).

    Another vote for Google Docs if you want an Excel-like application for free. I use it for most of my stuff and it's pretty powerful.
    Retired at age 56 after having "light bulb moment" due to reading MSE and its forums. Have been converted to the "budget to zero" concept and use YNAB for all monthly budgeting and long term goals.

    I use docs.google.com as I can access it at work, at home or on my phone.

    I find it more than good enough for my needs.

    (and it's free!)
