The best app for tracking expenses…if you know how to use it.

Today was the day I discovered my love for the Macbook Numbers app.

Today was also the day I discovered my hatred for the Macbook Numbers app.

I didn’t even know it was an app on my computer until I came across an article that talked about how the author used it to track her expenses and make budgets.

I was totally into it. A clean interface, bright colours, nice fonts…what could go wrong?

It seemed easy enough to use. Until I tried to make something other than what the templates offered. I wanted to visually map out my 50-20-30 rule budget. Aaaand it was a total shitshow.

I started getting flashbacks of my statistics class where we had to use Excel and algorithms.

God dammit.

This wasn’t the user-friendly budget calculator I had hoped it would be.

However, I encourage all you Mac users to give it a shot. If you can master it, Numbers could be a total asset to your financial organization.

When the trauma fades, I’ll give it another try. Only next time I’ll check out some tutorials first. And maybe brush up on my statistics skills. God help me.

Have you used the Numbers app before? Any tricks you could recommend? Let us know in the comment section below!
