There’s a lot of stress flying around at this time of the year. Driven by an insane desire to ‘enjoy at all costs’, we seem to run around like headless chickens searching, planning, scheduling and just plain gorging until we’re close to exploding with all the fun and hassle. Weird.
Well for those who would prefer a more sedate approach, with a little more control and less of the ‘oh good grief, *how* much did we spend?‘ hangover in January, we present the Christmas Budget Planner. This tiny free Android app lets you itemize and track your expenditure in real time as it happens, out there in the battle zone.
We particularly love the fact that you can take a snapshot of your gift buying at any time, covering a range of recipients. Spending too much on the neighbors? Relatives not getting enough compared to your work colleagues? Track and adjust here.
We’re definitely going to use the app to manage our $5 spend this holiday… it’ll make it so much easier to avoid over-spending like last year. Mrs Miggins still hasn’t returned the floral themed Post-It Note pack we gave her by mistake. Won’t happen again.
