I love sharing tools and services that help couples get their finances squared away. This week I want to highlight the National Foundation for Credit Counseling’s new tool, MyMoneyCheckUp. It’s out and it’s available both in English and Spanish. It take data that you submit like how much you make each month, and the type of debt you have and helps you see where you can improve on your financial system.
I signed up to try it out to see if we could tweak some of accounts. It was easy to get everything in. I enjoyed seeing some of the data explained in a narrative format. It’s free and quite easy to use.
