For people like me that hate paperwork, tax season can be a terrifying time of year. The tediousness of entering a slew of financial information and the fear of a potential audit makes the whole process one that I dread. For the past few years, I’ve been content to just dedicate a weekend to organizing my information and doing it all myself via the TurboTax website. When I saw that TurboTax offered a desktop version of their service via the Mac App Store, I decided to use it this year instead of the web app.

Having graduated and lived on my own for a while now, I have come to understand the importance of setting a budget. There are an overwhelming number of apps and sites and methods to help in setting a budget, and it can quickly get overwhelming sorting through all of those different resources. While many apps have their own new system of budgeting, sometimes it’s important to take a look back at more traditional methods of budgeting.
MoneyWell is a recently updated budgeting application that has done just that. MoneyWell utilizes a traditional form of budgeting known as “envelope budgeting.” Read on for more information about how this technique translates to digital format and some of the great features available in the latest release of MoneyWell.
