Midmorning Coffee: Start Managing Your Money Today

Amazon's Gold Box deal of the day is Quicken Deluxe 2011 for $29.24 (down from a list price of $59.95 and Amazon's regular price of $39.99). I used an older version of Quicken when I began learning about personal finance and started to track our finances. I can't emphasize enough how important it is to have a good grasp of your cash flow when you feel your financial situation is out of control - and Quicken can make it really easy to see how much comes in, how much goes out, and where it's all going. Only when you have a clear picture of all that can you make meaningful decisions about your spending and saving. So if you've been procrastinating on taking control of your finances, take the first step and start today. (I liked Quicken, but I've heard good things about You Need A Budget (YNAB).) Disclosure: I'm an Amazon affiliate, so any purchase you make after entering Amazon through a link on Chief Family Officer supports this site at no additional cost to you. Thank you!

    Please post any more info you hear about the You Really Need a Budget software- or something like that- mentioned above. I checked it out and it looks really good. Thanks for the idea.
