Money Management Apps for Couples


couple headerHow do you and your partner manage your money? Do you divvy up bills and hope to remember due dates? Do you share a financial calendar at home? Keeping a balanced budget can help you and your partner stay on track with your expenses — especially your bills and spending. If you’re struggling to find a convenient and easy-to-use option, consider managing your money through a smartphone app. These apps let you manage your money wherever you go, making it easy to check in and ensure you’re hitting the goals you need to hit to improve your financial health.
