A lot of people are out of work due to global stay home orders and shutdowns because of the Coronavirus pandemic.
Therefore, a lot of families are budgeting more and being more mindful of their finances.
They may be depleting their savings or surviving on government subsidies like unemployment or pandemic loans or grants. Here is where it is a good idea to download a good software or two to help you track your spending, pay bills or track deferrals, in case your mortgage, landlord or utility provider has suspended collections.
A few of these allow you to keep track of your credit score, your investment portfolio (if you’re not afraid), track your debt reduction or your daily, weekly, and monthly expenses so you know where your money is going and what you need to reign in, if that’s a concern.
