If you live in today’s America, you’ve probably heard the phrase “Time is money”. Time is so precious to us and juggling our professional life AND our personal lives at the same time have become quite a struggle.
The one thing we all go through or will eventually be going through is the joy of paying your bills! Yay! (Insert Sarcasm). Balancing all your bills and expenses is not easy. Thankfully, living in this technology-obsessed world, there are apps that can help you manage this. Believe it or not, they do lend a hand and brings comfort knowing that you’re not alone in this crazy thing called “life”.
So let’s just get on with it. Here are 3 awesome apps:
Mint: Millions of people use Mint to control their money. The proficient and protected app allows you to automatically track all your checking accounts, saving accounts, and credit cards in a central location, efficiently organizing and displaying the transactions with informative graphs.
Google Wallet: Have you ever eaten a fabulous dinner at a restaurant and once it was time to pay, you realize you forgot your wallet at home? Or what about realizing that you don’t have your wallet as you reach the register at your favorite retail store? Well you never have to be in that position again because the day that you could go shopping and leave your tangible wallet behind is finally here. With Google Wallet, you are able to store your credit card, debit card, loyalty card information in one place. Simply use your smartphone to “tap and pay” at stores to make your purchases. You can also use Google Wallet to pay for your online purchases.
Venmo: I love this app. I’ve been in so many situations where this app came in handy. For example: I go out to dinner with friends quite frequently and when our waiter delivers the bill, it’s always frustrating for everyone when you have to individually split the cost…and I’m sure it’s a lot of work for the waiter to swipe 5 different credit / debit cards. Venmo allows you to pay anyone instantly using money you have in Venmo or your linked bank account in a matter of seconds. This app has become quite popular because it’s so convenient to use. So one of our friends put the whole bill on her card, and we each used Venmo to transfer money to her account. She instantly “cashed out” and received the money the next day! Awesome!
And I can't help but feel that this song is appropriate for this blog post ;)
