Budget Calendar

I just discovered a great little piece of software: Budget Calendar from MiShell Software Systems. It's available for Mac, Linux, and Windows. It's inexpensive but not cheap!

Rich and I have been talking about tracking our expenses more closely. I already make notes in a notebook. We were thinking of adding a spreadsheet to calculate types and totals.

I decided to look for a simple calendar application that I could mark with the days we go out for meals, to get an overview of what we do and how often. I found a couple of options (see Mom's Calendar for Mac OS if you want something like that.) But I also found Budget Calendar. It turns out this is what I was really looking for; I just didn't know it!
