Up last on the savings app reviews docket is Qapital, which is the app I’ve been using for the least amount of time, but the one with which I’ve saved the most money so far. Continue reading “Qapital review: customizable automated savings”
Alright, it’s gonna be savings apps review week here so I can stop hinting about the ones I haven’t reviewed yet and just link to these posts, so let’s get started with the first one this week. As I mentioned in my previous post, I use a money app called Acorns that happens to be a good intro for people who want to start investing (or for people who already invest but want to boost their efforts). It’s available as a smartphone app, but you can also view and manage your account online. Continue reading “Acorns review: spare change as investment strategy”
As much as I talk a big talk about money and pretend I’ve got it all figured out (and if I could just get a damn 50% raise already I’d be good to go!), that’s not actually the case. Some days I’m internally screaming because while I’ve maybe started figuring out my shit, I feel like I’m sitting at the bottom of Mount Everest and financial independence is aaaallllllllll the way at the top.

Back all of two weeks ago when I decided to start this blog, I had the idea that I’d do a series about the fun money-saving apps I use to both save up for specific things and to boost my savings effortlessly. After all, I’m a millennial with a smartphone so it’s only natural I use these things, right? (I would say that’s a hilarious joke because I didn’t even get a smartphone until a month after I graduated college so I’m still relatively new to this scene, but it turns out joke’s on me because I’m just as addicted as I assume all the cool kids are who got theirs back in high school and college. That’s one of the reasons my personal Facebook account has been deactivated for something like 5 months now, but I digress).
Well, I’m putting the horse before the cart here because this post is about why I’m going to stop using one of said magical money-saving apps. Continue reading “Digit review: effortless savings with an unfortunate new change”
