Do you use any app or site to track spending? If so, is it easy to use?

Used Microsoft "Money" starting in 2003. Liked it a lot but eventually it was discontinued and I switched to Quicken 2008. Upgraded once to the 2014 version and don't care to go farther. Every time they update they add complicated features that I don't care to use. I just want to know where the money goes.

That is exactly what I want to do. I am looking at Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace,
Every Dollar. There is a free version and a paid version. I have always liked Dave Ramsey since I listened to him on the radio a few years ago.

I remember when we were paid in cash, and when out pocket was empty, so was our account!

I’ve heard really good things about Mint. Haven’t tried it but have friends who love it. And it’s free.

I also really liked MS Money, but had to switch to Quicken, I ignore the added features I do not need. I use this to track all of the financial (investments), and banking info, etc, works well so far.
I do not trust ANY site that wants MY passwords to get access to my accounts, so MINT and similar sites are out. For Quicken, I enter my sign-in and account passwords manually. My concern is when one of these sites get hacked, my accounts could potentially be drained....

I charge everything on one credit card and I just go to my Capital One account page and see how much I'm spending. All utilities I pay with my checking account online and as mentioned by tophcfa, I still use my check book register. They say, don't make it too complicated, or don't fix it if ain't broke.

I also use Quicken strictly off line, entering transactions manually.

Default Tracking Expenses

I’ve used quicken for almost 2 decades. Very flexible and accurate software. They are not doing real well in supporting quicken 2017, and have really gone down hill. Now they want to charge you annually (to soak you more), want want you to do all your stuff through web computing. Not happy with them.

Quicken is only doing what almost all other service companies are doing. And they’re better now than they have ever been imho. You can do as much or as little as you like, including taxes (TurboTax). And if you do a lot online, it is very secure. Everything financial...and I do mean everything...in one place if you choose to. Wonderful financial service...again...imho.
