The budgetEDGE concept grew out of a simple desire to access my personal financial information in an anonymous way (like an email account) online. After looking at the services that existed, I couldn’t find any other site that allows users to really understand the impact of their current spending patterns on the future or what potential purchases might mean to the future. While it’s great to see how much you have spent on chinchilla shearing lessons over the past 3 months, it’s more valuable to know how much my cash position will change if I attend another month of lessons. To solve that problem, I thought about it, and then hired the best (only) programmers I know.
Through the magic of the interweb, a nifty interface and some clever connecting of the bits that are you, financially speaking, they have created what I am proud to say is the best of the free web budgeting systems online.
Consider that budgetEDGE allows you to do five things that happen nowhere else together online:
Understand how the choices you make everyday impact your future cash position
See how others like yourself compare with your spending, saving and net worth position
Break down collections of expenses (like credit cards) and income (like money owed to you by a company or friends) into their respective pieces
Receive offers specific to your financial position in an anonymous, unobtrusive way that help you to earn money, pay off debt or pay for new purchases more cheaply
Play with different scenarios to see if you really can afford that BMW (or Hyundai)
We’ll post pictures and descriptions of ourselves just as soon as the Post Office, I mean that modeling agency, takes them off their wall.
We actually (really) do hope that you like this service. Our fallback plan is to sell sexy posters of ourselves through the site to pay off the bank loan that funded this ginormous enterprise. I guarantee you that you’ll like our site better than you’ll like those pictures…
