My husband and I have been using BudgetForLife for over 5 years now, and we LOVE it! We recommend it to all our friends. It's easy to use, and I love that we have financial records of our spending habits. It's helped us be more intentional with our money, and the very few times we have had an issue or question come up, the company has been quick to respond and help us with whatever we needed.

I've been using this for nearly 2 years and it has helped us organize our spending not only personally but for our business as well. Definitely a great, intuitive tool!

This personal budgeting app has made keeping track of finances not only easy, but enjoyable (as enjoyable as budgeting can be :))! I love the savings goal feature and have been much more conscientious of my spending with the help of this app. It is user friendly and easy to navigate. Such a time saver! Highly recommend.

This is a great app! It would be even greater and rate 5-Star, if it had functionality to automatically import/retrieve transactions into the "Log" from institutions i.e., financial and investment. I have reviewed the control panel and mostly all other features, and hope I didn't over look such functions. Another useful tool to incorporate is an auto feature that assist the user with automatic categorization, to save a lot of time and keyboard strokes, when setting up categories. These are just my thoughts, and I hope it is helpful in some way.

I guess I'm too stupid to use this? I've followed the setup directions, several times, and I still can't figure out how to get this working.

Easy to use and useful, love it! One thing i'd like to have - the option to automatically forward final "savings" value (either + or -) to the next month log so I have a continuous actual info each month.

As a user since 2014, I think one of my favorite things about BudgetForLife is that it's continually iterating to get better. Ever-expanding features to satisfy even the most savvy and complex budgets, yet increasingly intuitive interface and scalability that makes budgeting easier than ever for beginners. It's already my favorite budget software out there, which makes me that much more excited to see how it will improve in the years to come. Also, the cumulative effect is pretty stinking awesome. I now have 5+ years of financial history logged & accounted for! Not only does that help me observe bigger picture trends, but it also means that if I ever need to remember something that happened in the past, in less than 30 seconds I can find the exact transaction I need - the amount of the expense or income, when it happened, what it was for, etc. That's first of all super cool to me, but more importantly, it gives me a lot of peace, confidence, and security to truly know what's going on under the hood. All that said, thanks BFL for helping my family steward our finances well. Count us in as users ForLife!

The app is so cool. I had an issue while setting it up and messaged the team. They responded so quickly and helped rectify the problem. The app has been nothing but superb. Highly recommend if you are looking for a personal budgeting app.

This is such a practical and useful format to help me track my finances. I love the pie chart and graph break downs that allows me to see where my spending is going each month. As a college kid, it's great to see my finances laid out and to be able to start a good habit now! So helpful!!!
