I made a stab at financial organization yesterday with the excellent post from Oprah.com–but I got several comments from the community that, well–“Paper Is Passe’.” Logically, we should be looking at more online organization for your finances, right?
After checking with a horribly clever CPA friend of mine, he recommended the Manilla online system. It’s user-friendly, so you should be up and running within a minute or two. It’s completely FREE–always a plus–and you’ll get your bills, statements and balances instantly organized in one secure place online. I’ve lost money before from not being able to track certain programs such–Manilla will manage all of your accounts, subscriptions and loyalty programs. Now–the important thing about any online financial program is security: Manilla’s covered through McAffe and Verified Securesign–it’s bank-level security.
Here’s my favorite points:
- ONE password. One.
- Daily and/or weekly alerts for bills and payments due. No more late fees!
- Incredibly tidy online filing–no massive paperwork pile and easy to use to tax season.
- Clear separation so you can have one column for each segment–household, travel, medical, etc.
