Looking for a solution that can guide you through getting out of debt, saving more, and taking care of retirement? EveryDollar could be the perfect budget app for you!

There’s a free version you can check out or you can try their plus version for two weeks.

What’s Every Dollar About?

EveryDollar is a budgeting and financial goal tracking desktop tool and app from personal finance guru Dave Ramsey and author of best-selling book The Total Money Makeover.

In fact, EveryDollar is designed around the baby steps, making it easy for you to get started with a starter emergency fund, pay off your debts, and grow your net worth.

If you haven’t read the book (you really should!), there’s a tab on the left side of your budget to give you the basics of the plan.

With Every Dollar, you give every dollar a purpose at the start.This system helps you account for every dollar each pay period.

Once the income and expenses are cleared, you have an accurate idea of where your budgets needs an adjustment – either with improving expense estimates or plugging a money leak.

Should I Get the Paid or Free Version?

While the free tool works fine for me, you may want to unlock more. You can upgrade your account so your checking and savings synch up with EveryDollar, helping you stick to your goals easier.

You can try EveryDollar Plus out for 15 days to see if it is a good fit for you. It’s only $99/year.
