Chapter 47. Personal Finances > Organize Your Finances

Organize Your Finances

Quicken, from Intuit, is one of the best-selling programs of all time for the PC. It's an inexpensive, all-around personal finance program that helps you pay your bills and keep track of various accounts, as well as stocks and mutual funds, and see how you're doing at managing your money for retirement and other financial goals. Another program with similar features is Microsoft Money from Microsoft. The prices for these programs vary slightly, but they're typically about $35 to $50. You'll pay more for the “deluxe” versions, which add some multimedia files providing extra help and financial advice but really don't have all that much more functionality.

Before investing in personal finance software, find out what online services your bank offers. Some banks provide basic account-management programs online for free. Also, not all financial institutions are set up to work with all financial software. (I'll tell you more about online banking in Chapter 56.)
