Gas doesn’t have to break the bank!

This app takes the tried-and-true envelope method and makes it digital! GoodBudget makes the process of tracking your spending seamless.
The app allows you to categorize the money in your bank account by bill and expense. Each time you earn money, you can go into the app and separate the money by category. This allows you to stick to your budget and only spend the money allocated to each category.
You can also share the account with family members, so everyone understands the monthly budget.
The app’s free version gives you 20 envelopes and sharing with up to 2 devices. You can upgrade to an $8 per month version that allocates unlimited envelopes and shares with up to 5 devices.
Saving money on food and gas is great, but what about saving money on prescriptions? If you’re someone with a lot of them, then GoodRx is the app for you!
You don’t need to call around to find out which pharmacy has your prescription for less. GoodRx makes it easy to find budget-friendly prescriptions by listing the prices at nearby pharmacies.
Plus, the app posts coupons you can use at each pharmacy.
GoodRx is free for users.
