These are the best expense tracker apps of 2024

Prioritize your expenses with these top apps, available on multiple devices and highly rated..


Tracking your spending is often the first step to getting your finances in order. By understanding what you spend money on and just how much things cost, you can see exactly where your cash is going and areas where you can scale back.

It's easy to make this part of your everyday routine thanks to expense tracker apps that help you manage your money on the go. These apps certainly overlap with budgeting apps , but while the latter provides a big-picture view of your finances, expense tracker apps put more of an emphasis on your spending. These apps usually categorize your expenses and help you get a good idea of your purchasing behavior.

CNBC Select  set out to find which expense tracker apps are the best. We reviewed more than a dozen and narrowed down our list to the top ones, whether you want an app that easily captures all your transaction data, one that automates the expense reporting process at your job or one that holds you accountable by requiring you to manually input each one of your transactions. (See  our methodology  for more information on how we chose the best expense tracker apps.)

What is the best way to track your expenses?

There's no perfect expense tracking plan that fits everyone. Each person has their own method — unless, of course, you have no method at all.

While some people may find looking at their monthly credit or debit card statements enough to keep their spending in check, others need something more hands-on. You can opt to track your transactions daily in a spreadsheet or to use technology like an expense tracker app. If you're not sure which is the best program for you, try out a few different methods to see what sticks.

What does an expense tracker app do?

Expense tracker apps connect to your bank account and/or credit cards to track and categorize your expenses, giving you a good idea of your purchasing behavior. This can help identify spending areas where you could make cuts.

Should I use an expense tracker app?

Keeping track of your expenses is important in managing your overall finances. While you don't need an app to help you record your purchases, it can certainly come in handy.

Some expense tracker apps automatically sync to your bank accounts and credit cards, which can save you time instead of having to manually gather all your different credit card statements and such. Other apps help you categorize your spending so you can better understand your purchasing habits. Plus, some of the best expense tracker apps offer educational tools like blogs and courses to help you learn more about budgeting and your money.

Are expense tracker apps worth the cost?

Expense tracker apps are often either free, offer a free version, have a free trial or offer a refund for users to test out. This way, you can decide for yourself if the app is right for you. If you're a serious budgeter or are tracking expenses for a small business, it generally will be worth splurging on a paid app.

Bottom line

Tracking your spending is smart for just about anyone since it shows possible areas you can cut back on, and a mobile app makes it easier to do. Consider the expense tracker apps listed here as a good place to get started and see which one works best for managing your money on the go.

The best budgeting apps for 2022

We've tested the best budgeting apps to help you decide which one is right for you

The best budgeting apps

Saving money is more of a challenge than ever in this age of skyrocketing prices. That’s where the best budgeting apps can help you to keep track of — and get ahead of — your personal finances. 

We all think about our money differently, which leads to having different approaches to following your money. With this in mind, we tested the best online budgeting apps to find the best options to help you make creating a budget less onerous.

What are the best budgeting apps?

Our top pick for the best budgeting apps is Simplifi by Quicken. For a small monthly fee, Simplifi provides attractive and flexible visualizations that make it easy to track the flow of your money. And its features can be applied to several approaches to budgeting, a unique feature among the services we tested. Simplifi has strong guidance on how to use its tools to create budgets and save for the future.

If you need more help in creating a budget, then you should check out YNAB – shorthand for You Need A Budget. YNAB costs almost three times our first pick, but it excels at its one job: digitizing the thought process behind the popular zero-sum budget. YNAB has a four-step approach that makes it the only service that aims to make you learn how to be more intentional about your money. The service has the best support and education of any we tested, and has the most customizability, so you can assign funds from your available bucket of money to specific monetary actions, and reallocate funds as necessary. While YNAB does have automation, it will require you to go into the service and make adjustments as you move through the month.

If you don’t want to spend any money, the best free budgeting app is Intuit Mint. It offers a full picture of your financial health, and even credit score checking. Mint’s new beta interface addresses many of the services’ visual and organizational shortcomings, but even so, you can’t escape the frequent offers Intuit serves up unless you choose to pay to ditch the ads.

1. Simplifi by Quicken

Our expert review:


Reasons to buy, reasons to avoid.

Simplifi by Quicken is, as its name implies, a simplified approach to personal finance. This cloud-based service makes it easy to track your money and budget wherever you are. 

Now owned by Aquiline Capital Partners, Simplifi comes from the same stewards of long-time stalwart Quicken. Whereas Quicken is a full-scale personal financial package with desktop applications and online/mobile support, Simplifi pares things back to basics, and it does so with a fresh, visually appealing interface and logical workflow to tracking accounts, setting savings goals, and creating budgets. 

The service handles account tracking across banks, investments, and credit cards and payment services, and combines this with spending and savings plans, bill alerts, and trends analysis of your spending, income, savings, and more. Unlike its well-known personal finance sibling Quicken, Simplifi began life as a web-first service, and its graphical look and feel reflect that history. 

Read the rest of our Simplifi by Quicken review . 

YNAB has a very clear mission, as reflected in its name – which stands for You Need a Budget. Unlike competing personal finance packages, YNAB is all about budgets. Specifically, about creating zero-sum budgets that are designed around four rules that create mindfulness around how you think about money management and budgeting.  

The idea behind YNAB is to spend with intention, whereby you allocate your income to different expenses. YNAB’s singular focus is its strength, and sets it apart from the other personal finance services scrabbling for attention. Those services, including Mint and Simplifi, offer budgeting as a part of a broad spectrum snapshot of your money management. Generous guidance coupled with its clear focus on budgeting through managing income and expenses make YNAB the best budgeting app around. However, it’s more expensive than the other best budgeting apps we reviewed. 

Read our full YNAB review .

3. Intuit Mint

Intuit Mint provides a robust set of automated tools for tracking your personal finances. Among those tools is the one that makes this one of the best budgeting apps we tested: The ability to create multiple budgets to view your spending across different categories.

Part of Intuit’s stable of financial products, which includes TurboTax and QuickBooks, Mint has been around since 2006. Mint’s services are free, but at least one feature – bill negotiation – has an extra fee, and you’ll have to endure a steady diet of financial offers. For mobile users, Mint has $0.99 upgrade that eliminates ads, and on iOS you get extra features with Mint Premium at $4.99 a month. Both paid upgrades are targeting mobile users, but will minimize ads via the web as well.

Mint tracks your spending, provides financial alerts, and includes free credit monitoring from TransUnion. Once you link your financial accounts, you can set up a budget that draws on that information and track your transactions and  financial health from a single dashboard.

Read our full Intuit Mint review .

4. Personal Capital by Empower

Personal Capital is a free budgeting service offered by wealth management advisor Empower Retirement. Its web- and app-based tools provide top-level financial snapshots and tracking, but don’t go far enough for specific activities like budgeting and saving. 

While Personal Capital is free, it’s hard to separate the noise related to its paid services from the value offered by the company’s free services. Once inside, though, you have access to tracking and investment tools and a keep-it-simple take on budgeting and savings. However, if you’re looking for a free budgeting app, Intuit Mint — despite its ads — is the better option.

Read our full Personal Capital review .

5. EveryDollar

EveryDollar from Ramsey Solutions is an online zero-dollar budgeting tool that follows a similar vein to YNAB. Available in free and paid tiers, the service stands out for its use of friendly, everyday language for guiding you through the process of setting up a budget.

The free version of EveryDollar sacrifices functionality and limits you to manual data input, which makes it less useful for tracking your cash flow. Stepping up to the premium paid version fixes that, and positions your budget as one pillar of a larger financial education. That’s because the upgraded paid version is one part of the Ramsey+ membership service that includes Ramsey’s Financial Peace University, EveryDollar, Baby Steps program, SmartTax, group coaching, and more. Ramsey+ membership starts at $59.99 for three months ($19.99 per month), and it costs $129.99 for a year ($10.83 a month, billed annually).

The paid version of EveryDollar has a lot to like, but among the best budgeting apps, it’s only worth it if you plan to maximize your use of the full Ramsey membership.

How we tested the best budgeting apps

Before testing the best budgeting apps, we first identified the strongest candidates for online budgeting apps and services. We reviewed each service by setting up an account as a new user, and walking through the setup and configuration – including connecting accounts. While our emphasis for this roundup was on the budgeting features, we looked at the holistic user experience, from onboarding to using daily.

We considered whether a service’s price felt appropriate for the type and balance of services you get. For example, Mint is free, and it covers a wide breadth of actionable financial information and even lets you check your credit score and negotiate your bills (extra fee) from within the app; however, to ditch the annoying ads, you have to (confusingly) upgrade via mobile only. Personal Capital aggregates your information, but has less functionality than Mint. YNAB charges more than most of the budget-focused services we tested, but it has powerful functionality and a degree of personalization not found anywhere else. EveryDollar has a limited free version, and its paid tier is the most expensive of all (though it includes other financial guidance as part of the Ramsey+ membership).

We considered how much help was available, both in the context of assistance from company staff and in terms of guidance in-app or via the service’s website. Too often we’ve seen users stay away from personal finance apps and services simply because they were too intimidating to use and learn.

Finally, we considered the breadth of the app and its service. We particularly liked the convenience of having one service that handles multiple components of our financial life, since it meant we had to only enter our information and connect data in one place. And that we had only one app that in turn harnessed and contextualized our data for us. But we also recognized the inherent value in doing one thing very well, an advantage firmly held by YNAB. 

What to look for when selecting the best budgeting app

When choosing the best budgeting app for your needs, it’s important to think about your why. What is it that’s driving you to seek out and commit to a budgeting app? Are you trying to see why your bills are so high every month? Or are you saving up for a down-payment on a house?

Budgeting comes down to two core components: Your fixed and discretionary spending, and your planned savings for big events or expense goals.? These core components are addressed and visualized in different ways by our best budgeting apps. Once you understand where your spending habits fit into your bigger financial picture, you can recognize when it’s time to cut out that daily latte in favor of saving for something else.

If your goal is to aggregate all of your financial data in one place, creating a budget may be an outgrowth of this thought process. If you value seeing your budgets in the same place and context as all of your information, consider the broad-spectrum personal finance apps we reviewed — Simplifi, Mint, and Personal Capital. Personal finance software is more than having a pretty veneer with snappy visuals. Simplifi and Mint stand out for providing actionable tools that you can dynamically learn from and adjust.

If you want to fully understand exactly where all of your money goes every month, then you should look at zero-sum budgeting as used in YNAB, Simplifi, and EveryDollar. YNAB in particular is structured around the idea that every dollar has a job — an assignment, if you will. And you assign those dollars to monetary actions or events, in categories with names you can fully customize. But, YNAB’s focus is clearly on managing your budget, and only managing your budget. 

Another consideration is how does the app connect to your accounts? You’ll want to be aware if the app uses a direct connection to your bank – in which case you can typically choose which accounts to link – or use a third party like Plaid to make the connection (Plaid currently links to all accounts under an institution’s username and password). Is there a way to account for non-monetary assets, cash-on-hand, or accounts that you can’t, or don’t want, to link up digitally?

We suggest choosing a service that gels with how you think. Sticking with a budget is going to come down to finding the right tool that addresses your needs in the broadest and most flexible way. Only then will budgeting become an integral part of your routine — and your money mindset.

Best Expense Tracker Apps

A monthly expense tracker app automates the process of recording transactions, totaling expenses by category and tracking progress toward goals.

The latest smartphone apps have made monitoring spending habits, tracking expenses and managing money a breeze.

A monthly expense tracker app automates the process of recording transactions, totaling expenses by category and tracking progress toward goals. While there are many resourceful apps available, the best tools are ones you actually use.

“We’ve found our most successful customers have a habit of sitting down and looking at their finances for (at least) five minutes a week,” says Kristen Dillard, vice president of product management for Quicken, a publisher of personal finance software.

You may only need five minutes too if you use one of the following best expense tracker apps for personal and business use .

  • Everydollar.
  • SupportPay.
  • Center Expense.
  • Your banking app.

Please note that the popular app Mint will be shut down by owner Intuit as of Jan. 1, 2024, so it's not in this list; Intuit will integrate its user base into Credit Karma.

1. Everydollar

Cost:  $12.99 per month or $79.99 per year for annual subscription. A free 14-day trial is available.

Top feature:  Drag and drop feature that makes it easy to organize your budget.

Best for:  Zero-based budgeting adherents.

Everydollar is one of the many products and services offered by personal finance guru Dave Ramsey. It espouses a zero-based budgeting system in which users “give every dollar a job.” The app can pull transactions automatically from financial accounts, and those can be split across multiple budget categories.

For those with irregular income, Everydollar’s Paycheck Planning feature was recently added to make budgeting easier. It allows users to input paydays and then plan expenses around those dates.

While other apps will automatically create a budget based on inputted transactions, Everydollar doesn’t offer this feature. Some may see it as a drawback, but the app’s website touts a hands-on budgeting approach as a way to provide more control over money management.

2. Simplifi

Cost:  $3.99 per month or $47.88 for the first year when billed annually. $5.99 per month when paid monthly. A 30-day free trial is available to new subscribers.

Top feature:  Tags that allow you to track expenses across multiple categories.

Best for:  Those who want a feature-rich and ad-free budgeting app.

Offered by Quicken, Simplifi bundles together a collection of user-friendly tools that make it easy to track expenses, plan spending and save for future goals.

“It does everything from download your transactions to help you create a budget to run reports,” Dillard says. For those who find a traditional budget too rigid, Simplifi has other features to help them manage money. “We tried to make it so the app would be more fluid,” Dillard explains.

Simplifi will create a spending plan based on a user’s transactions, but it also has a watch list feature for those who only want to track specific expenses, such as their Target purchases or dining out. The app will automatically categorize expenses too, although users can make changes and create rules to help the app sort incoming transactions. By using tags, it’s easy to total expenses across categories and see, for instance, how much was spent on vacation or on a child’s extracurricular activities.

3. SupportPay

Cost:  Free for limited features including two receipt uploads and three expenses per month. Premium features, including unlimited expenses and receipts, cost $8.33 a month for a single user or $12.49 a month for a family plan when billed annually. Month-to-month plans cost $14.99 and $19.99 per month, respectively.

Top feature:  Automated, certified record of expenses for tax, court or other purposes.

Best for:  Parents who do not live together but share expenses for children .

SupportPay is a specialized expense tracker created for parents who share the cost of raising a child but don't live together.

With SupportPay, parents can upload or take a photo of receipts to share with the other parent. Payment can be made directly through the app, or payment records can be added manually. There is also the option for a parent to dispute an expense and provide a written explanation of why they don't agree with the payment request. Data from SupportPay can be exported and used to create certified records for tax or court purposes.

Removing emotion from the process of splitting expenses and increasing transparency are key benefits of SupportPay. However, to get the most out of the app, both parents need to be willing to install and use it.

4. Center Expense

Cost:  Free.

Top feature:  Real-time expense reporting and management.

Best for:  Medium-sized businesses.

Center Expense is a free app for businesses that use CenterCard, a corporate credit card. Its founders developed the app after realizing that the traditional system of batch-based expense processing no longer worked for many businesses.

With Center Expense, transactions made by employees on a CenterCard are immediately reported within the app, and workers have the ability to access transactions from their phones to add any necessary details. The app integrates with financial software such as QuickBooks and Oracle NetSuite.

Center Expense was designed with medium-sized businesses – those employing 50 to 500 workers – in mind but can also serve larger companies with 500 to 2,000 employees that are looking for real-time expense management solutions.

Cost:  Free for accounts serving up to five clients. Growth and Premium plans that can generate reports for additional clients are $99 and $199 per month, respectively.

Top feature:  Real-time analysis of spending, which can detect anomalies.

Best for:  Entrepreneurs looking to better manage cash flow or businesses that track expenses for clients.

Steeped in machine-based learning, Digits says its app gets smarter with every transaction. It provides real-time analysis of transactions to identify recurring expenses, predict future costs and detect anomalies in a business's spending. More than 9,000 financial institutions are supported by the app, which will also automatically reconcile transactions against your bank account.

With Digit Reports, users can create a variety of graphs and charts that make it easy to understand how money is spent and anticipate future expenses. Meanwhile, the Digits Search function provides an intuitive way to zero in on spending in certain categories.

Digits offers a free version that can track expenses and generate reports for up to five clients. Don't confuse this app with the similarly named Digit app, which automatically transfers money from a user's checking to savings account.

6. Shoeboxed

Cost:  Regular prices range from $29 to $89 per month when paid monthly or $23 to $71 per month when paid annually.

Top feature:  Prepaid envelopes that can be filled with receipts, mailed in and converted to digital copies.

Best for:  Businesses with a significant number of paper receipts.

While some expense tracker apps focus on capturing data from bank accounts, Shoeboxed provides a way to easily manage receipts and other paper documentation. Users can scan receipts themselves or request a Magic Envelope to send their documents to Shoeboxed for scanning. The app will create expense reports and integrate with other tools such as QuickBooks and Evernote.

What's more, the app will automatically categorize receipts by vendor, date, total spent and payment type. It will also store IRS-accepted images and other data. Plans start at $23 per month for 300 physical documents and 600 digital documents per year. A 25% discount is currently being offered, and it applies to the first six months of monthly plans or the first year of annual plans.

Be aware that the Shoeboxed app is only available for iOS devices.

7. Expensify

Cost:  Free for up to 25 SmartScans per month. Then, prices for individual plans start at $4.99 a month.

Top feature:  Option to auto-submit reports for reimbursement.

Best for:  Workers who need to track mileage and job expenses for reimbursement or tax purposes.

Expensify is another app that makes it easy to scan receipts and capture expense data. Plus, its pricing is more affordable than other options. The app allows 25 free SmartScans of receipts each month, or for $4.99 a month, individual users can scan an unlimited number of receipts. Data is stored indefinitely, and the app will track mileage as well.

Group plans have additional features such as expense approval functions and integration with accounting software. Expensify gets strong reviews online, and aside from affordable pricing, it appeals to users looking to monitor GPS mileage. The only caveat: The interface isn't intuitive for all users.

Cost:  Plan pricing ranges from $13-$70 per month.

Top feature:  Ability to capture receipts from photos, scans or emails, followed by automated bank reconciliation.

Best for:  Small businesses seeking an easy-to-use, cloud-based solution for financial management.

For small businesses that want to do more than track expenses, Xero provides a comprehensive solution for money management. It can be used for invoicing, bill payment and reporting. As a spending tracker, it can be synced to multiple bank accounts and also capture expense dates from receipts and emails. Then, it reconciles bank accounts daily.

The app and website were designed to be intuitive, and they work seamlessly with a number of other apps to integrate tools for payroll, payments and time management, among other tasks.

Three monthly plans are available, starting with a $13 per month option that Xero says is ideal for freelancers, self-employed workers and new businesses. Plans with more features are offered at $37 and $70 per month. New users can access all Xero features for 30 days to determine which plan is right for them.

9. Your Banking App

Top feature:  Banking and expense management in one place.

Best for:  Bank customers.

You may have the best expense tracking app on your phone already.

“One of the easiest ways to keep track of your spending is your mobile banking app,” says Sonali Divilek, head of digital products and channels at Chase. Divilek points to the Snapshot feature within the Chase Mobile app as an example. “(It) provides automated daily insights into your spending and the categories where you’re spending the most, whether that’s groceries, entertainment or shopping.”

Banking apps may also have features that can help track which merchants have your card information stored. That’s something that can be particularly useful for monitoring recurring expenses, according to Divilek.

Check with your financial institution to learn whether they have an app and what expense tracking tools come with it.

Connect accounts to categorize transactions

Not all banks allow Mint access

No receipt uploading

Accounts sometimes need re-authorization to sync

Owned by Intuit, Mint is a personal finance app geared toward helping people organize and manage their finances and credit. It’s the list of best expense tracker apps because it gives an in-depth look at personal finances and offers tools to grow your net worth and pay down debt.

Most expense tracker apps can integrate with your bank and credit card accounts, just like Mint can. However, this app also helps you avoid late fees by notifying you of upcoming bill due dates. It will even notify you if your account balance is running low so you can avoid an overdraft fee, or if you’re close to your credit card’s limit. 

With Mintsights, you can see how your subscription spending changes month-to-month. This way, you can cancel subscriptions you’ve forgotten about or maybe even negotiate a lower rate with the provider.

Best for Investors : Empower (Formerly Personal Capital)

The best expense tracker app for investors is Empower because you can view all of your investment and bank accounts in one app. It gives investment tools, advice, expense categorization, and helps you stay on top of upcoming bills.

Empower is a personal finance and wealth management company founded in 2009. This app is free and gives you a clear snapshot of your financial health.

If you have over $100,000 in investable assets, you’re eligible for advisory services with Empower. After linking your accounts, receive a free initial consultation with one of their financial advisors. Compared to similar companies, its annual fee for investment management is high. You will pay an annual fee of 0.89% if your assets are over under $1 million. If it’s over $1 million, your annual fee is 0.79% to 0.49% depending on the total assets.

This app is still beneficial if you don’t have $100,000 in investable assets, though. Take advantage of its investment management tools to link accounts, plan for retirement, set a budget, and see your cash flow. Each of these services is free with the app or its web interface.

Best for Receipt Saving : Expensify

  • Price: Free for up to 25 scans, then $4.99–$9 per month

When looking for an app for receipt saving, go with Expensify because its app automatically scans, reads, and imports receipt details for you. It also works great for travel—get trip reminders, flight delay notifications, and change notifications sent right to your phone.

Automatic receipt reading sometimes takes longer than it would to manually type in the info

Expensify is an app launched in 2008 meant specifically to manage receipts and expenses. It allows 25 scans per month for free, and beyond that, you’ll need a paid account. Pricing starts at $4.99 per month, or $9 per user per month if your company needs expense reporting, card management, approvals, and reimbursements.

This app is targeted toward business users because it has tools to submit receipts directly to a manager or accountant. From there, they can approve or reject expenses right from the app. Expensify even offers a corporate Visa card and a corporate travel assistant.

Integrate accounting apps like QuickBooks, Xero, NetSuite, and Sage Intacct. Next-day reimbursement is a favorite feature of Expensify because employees get their money back quickly. 

One of the best features for international travelers is how Expensify works with global currencies and taxes. An app that’s globally compatible makes month-end closing seamless.

Best for Reimbursement and Mileage : Everlance

  • Price: Free for 30 trips, then $5 and up monthly

With Everlance, create an IRS-compliant mileage log and sync your bank accounts and credit cards for expense and receipt tracking. This app is particularly popular with those who are self-employed.

GPS used to create an IRS-compliant mileage log

Syncs to bank or credit card for expenses and receipts

Export mileage and expense reports in PDF, CSV, or Excel formats

The app creates a new trip if you’ve stopped for 10 minutes

Premium features cost far more than other expense tracker apps

Notifications are cumbersome if manually tracking trips

Founded in 2015, Everlance is an app designed to track mileage, expenses, and receipts. When you download the app, you automatically start a seven-day Premium trial. At the end of the trial, you’ll revert to a free account unless you choose to upgrade. 

To track expenses, sync your credit cards and bank accounts. With one swipe, you can categorize business and personal expenses. For recurring expenses and transactions, users can set custom expense rules. With Everlance, tracking revenue is easy, too—even if you have income from multiple sources. 

Everlance uses GPS technology to automatically chart your trips. However, you can also turn that feature off and manually track trips. While the app does advertise you can set it and forget it, user reviews suggest it’s best to double-check your trip is recorded, as GPS errors have caused the app to miss some trips. 

There are three packages available with Everlance:

Best Free Option : NerdWallet


If you want to get a handle on your personal finances for free, download the NerdWallet app. With it, you can see all of your accounts and their transactions in one place, keep tabs on your credit and net worth, and get helpful reports on your cash flow.

Track income and expenses

Monitor your credit and net worth

It’s completely free

Limited transaction management

Credit score is only provided by one bureau—TransUnion

Must link your account to reconcile transactions, rather than it pulling from your credit report

NerdWallet is a personal finance company founded in 2009. Its app gives a complete look at your personal finances and tools to help manage your money. It’s completely free and doesn’t offer in-app purchases. 

Link your accounts and categorize your transactions to get a picture of how you spend your money every month. From there, set goals to help pay down debt, invest for your future, and save money. 

When you link a debit or credit card, you can receive offers from retailers to get cashback. NerdWallet also offers calculators and editorial content to help you make smart financial decisions. 

The app offers tips based on your own personal situation. For example, if you're using a high amount of credit on a credit card, the app tells you to make multiple payments per month on that specific card to keep your balance low.

We recommend Mint as the best expense tracker app because it offers credit monitoring, expense tracking, and budgeting tools. Best of all, it’s free. However, if you need to migrate your record-keeping practices to your phone, or you need receipt scanning capability, you may want to spring for something with more robust features.

In the News

The Federal Reserve has aggressively increased the federal funds rate since February 2022. These rate increases have caused business and consumer loan rates to increase significantly, making it harder to find affordable financing. For those focused on managing their money in the wake of rising rates, expense tracker apps can help simplify the process of tracking spending and saving for specific goals.

Pros and Cons of Expense Tracker Apps

Can simplify financial management

Free options are available

May help you budget and improve credit

May help you meet money goals

Certain apps cost money

Features vary

Not all financial institutions connect

Requires some upfront and ongoing work 

Pros Explained

  • Can simplify financial management: Expense tracker apps may make it easier to manage your money, separate business and personal expenses, and track your monthly spending. 
  • Free options are available: Certain apps are free, and you can find a good tracker without worrying about any added monthly costs. 
  • May help you budget and improve credit: If you commit to using an expense tracker app, it could help you establish and stick to your budget. It may also help you improve your credit score, as many apps have helpful features like monthly payment alerts; these can help you avoid missed or late payments. Your payment history has a big effect on your credit score . 
  • May help you meet money goals: Certain apps let you set savings goals and track your progress toward those goals. If used consistently, a personal expense tracker app could help you save for a down payment or take that vacation you’ve been putting off. 

Cons Explained

  • Certain apps cost money: While some expense tracker apps are free, this isn’t the case with all of them. But, it’s worth considering the money you may save by using a paid tracker app, which may have more/better features than free apps.
  • Features vary: Financial features vary across apps, so there isn’t one right option for everyone. You’ll need to do some research to find an app that works well for your situation. 
  • Not all financial institutions connect: Some banks or credit unions may not sync with certain expense tracker apps, meaning you won’t be able to easily track your spending. If you have a question about whether your financial institution will connect to an app, contact the app’s customer service team to confirm. 
  • Requires some upfront and ongoing work: To get the most out of a personal expense tracker app, you’ll need to do some work upfront and commit to using the app moving forward. While most apps don’t require any heavy lifting, there’s a time commitment involved. 

Alternatives to Expense Tracker Apps

  • Digital spreadsheets : For those who’d rather not rely on expense tracking apps, digital spreadsheets are a useful alternative. Consider setting up spreadsheets using Google Sheets or Microsoft Excel. You can customize your spreadsheet to meet your needs and modify it over time as needed. 
  • Paper expense tracking : Some people prefer tracking their expenses on paper. If this sounds like you, your best option is likely keeping receipts and reconciling them against your checkbook, credit card, and bank statements each month. Consider creating an easy-to-track filing system in case you need to go back and review certain expenses. 
  • Reconciling online statements : You could also track your spending by reconciling your online statements once a week (or more often, if you prefer). This way, purchases will be fresh in your mind and you should be able to confirm that both vendors and amounts on your statements are correct. 
  • Digital calendars: If your primary goal is to track monthly payments, relying on your phone’s digital calendar could be a helpful and no-cost option. Review your monthly bills, and set up reminders in your phone so you don’t miss any payments or pay late. 

Expense tracking apps and other financial management tools require upfront work and ongoing upkeep. They won’t automatically help you achieve your financial goals; instead, you need to commit to using them over time to meet your money goals and improve your situation.

Final Verdict

Methodology, best overall : expensify.

  • Reimbursement: Next day direct deposit
  • Extras: Live travel notifications
  • User complaints: Receipts must be manually sorted

Expensify is our choice for best expense tracker app thanks to its vast array of features and automation capabilities.

SmartScan technology allows users to upload receipts on the go

Next day direct deposit and corporate credit card reimbursement available

Real time notifications for travel details

Manual sorting required to match receipts to expense reports

App freezes, causing some users to upload receipts multiple times

Users can complete their expense reports, track receipts, and more with Expensify. Its SmartScan technology makes it simple to keep track of receipts, even on the go. The app can automatically record, report, and submit expenses to generate real time reports. Capture a picture of the receipt and details such as merchant, date and price are automatically coded for faster reimbursement.

You get real time travel notifications for upcoming trips, delayed flights, and other details, and any changes to the itinerary are directly sent to your mobile device. Mileage tracking is included in the mix as well.

Expensify supports corporate card reconciliation and next day direct deposit reimbursement. It also has accounting integrations with services such as QuickBooks, Xero, and NetSuite.

Even though it offers a lot of mobile features, some users complain that you have to manually sort receipts to match expense reports. Others note that the app freezes sometimes, requiring them to upload receipts again.

Runner-Up , Best Overall : Zoho Expense

 Zoho Expense

  • Reimbursement: Connects credit cards for quicker payments
  • Extras: Built-in GPS for logging miles
  • User complaints: Poor UI

Zoho Expense is our runner up for best overall expense tracker apps because it allows effortless expense tracking and quick approvals.

Store receipts digitally and track expenses in real time

Log miles using a built-in GPS

Connect credit cards for quick reimbursement

May be glitchy and require multiple uploads

Integrates with only a handful of accounting software

The Zoho Expense app allows you to easily store digital copies of receipts and record expenses as they happen. You can also pin receipts to reports, sort expenses by category, and add additional data fields. It even has a built-in GPS tracker and maps so you can log mileage overheads for trips.

You can connect your credit card to the app to automatically import and manage transactions, and expenses can be batched together and sent to approving managers.

It's also possible to create per diem rates for employees and multiple currencies are supported. Enhanced analytics let you track excessive spending and keep policy violations in check.

The features are impressive, but they're not without their flaws and limitations. Some users report that the app can be glitchy at times and that it requires users to enter their information multiple times. The app doesn't integrate with many accounting software programs, which might make it time consuming for some businesses.

Best With External Service Integration : Rydoo Expense

 Rydoo Expense

  • Reimbursement: Multiple options for submitting expenses
  • Extras: Integrates well with multiple other apps
  • User complaints: Difficulty reading receipts accurately

Rydoo Expense has a laundry list of features, from mileage tracking to real time expense analysis. But where it really stands apart from the crowd is its integration with other software. This makes the migration to and from different platforms a breeze. It's why we chose it as best for external service integration.

Seamlessly integrates with enterprise resource planning (ERP) packages

Analyzes credit card statements to match expenses with transactions

Expenses can be sent by email, captured via a smartphone camera, or integrated through third-party programs like Dropbox

Customers report that the app doesn't read receipts properly

Bugs may require users to uninstall and reinstall the app

You can submit expenses on the go with Rydoo Expense, and reports can be sent by email, captured through a camera, and submitted via external services such as Dropbox. The app can automatically create expenses when scanning receipts, and you only have to add the extra information like project and payment method.

Rydoo can analyze credit card statements to match expenses with transactions, and detailed compliance rules can be set for employees for more accurate expense management.

But Rydoo Expense's biggest strength is its integration with other apps. It features seamless integration with ERP packages such as SAP, Oracle, and Microsoft Dynamics. It's also easy to migrate to Rydoo from other expense management/tracker systems.

Rydoo excels at integration, but it does fall short in some key areas. Users mention problems with the app reading receipts properly, necessitating manual entry for expenses. Others report problems with reports getting stuck in a queue and being asked by customer support to uninstall and reinstall the app.

Best For Multiple Bills/Vendor Management : QuickBooks


  • Reimbursement: Can connect to bank accounts
  • Extras: Advanced bill management tools
  • User complaints: Problems with expenses tracking feature

QuickBooks is a name that's synonymous with accounting, so it's no surprise that it made our list of top expense tracker apps. We chose it as the best for multiple bills and vendor management because its standout feature is its advanced bill management tools.

Set up recurring bills

Supports more than 750 apps

Track sent invoices, even those in multiple currencies

App may not sync well with other apps

Users report problems with photographing receipts

You can set up recurring bills with QuickBooks and keep a record of bills you've paid by check. It's also possible to set up vendors, control expenses incurred, and pay multiple vendors and bills at the same time. QuickBooks can be integrated with third-party payment solutions such as PayPal, Bill.com, and Apple Pay.

QuickBooks lets you customize your invoices and sales receipts with your organization's logo, and you can better prepare for all the necessary tax deductions by providing your accountant with access. Support for more than 750 apps, including everything from inventory management systems to customer relationship management solutions, allows you to enhance the functionality of the app even further.

It's accounting software, so QuickBooks' invoice generator lets you track sent invoices even if they're in multiple currencies. You can also connect your bank account with the app and track the profits and losses of your business. Bank transactions can be reviewed and added to accounting records.

Even though QuickBooks is convenient for managing multiple bills and vendors, it's not without its flaws. Some users report that the expenses tracking feature doesn't sync well, and others note problems with photographing receipts.

Best for Travel Expense Management : SAP Concur

 SAP Concur

  • Reimbursement: Quickly approve expense reports
  • Extras: Import data directly from credit cards
  • User complaints: Uber receipts can be tricky

SAP Concur might be the right app for you if you have a lot of travel-related expenses. It made our list as best for travel expense management. The app has a lot of intuitive tools to help employees track expenses incurred during work-related travel.

Book flights, hotels, ride sharing, and more anywhere

Quickly review and approve expense reports

Import data directly from credit cards

Users report difficulties uploading Uber receipts

Difficult to enter more than one or two expenses at a time

A companion app for Concur solutions, SAP Concur lets you book business flights and approve travel invoices anytime and anywhere. You can use the app to quickly review and approve reports and travel requests, to add attendees to business meetings or meals, and access and manage your entire itinerary on the road.

You can additionally import data directly from credit cards. Flights, ride sharing, cabs, and hotels can be booked from anywhere. You can get customized hotel suggestions and itemized charges based on ​an estimated travel budget. You can also integrate your itinerary with the TripIt app for better management of travels.

Users have reported some glitches with SAP Concur. Some are related to uploading Uber receipts using the app. They report only being able to upload Uber receipts using the desktop version. Others note that it's difficult to enter more than one or two expenses at a time.

Best For Quick Expense Approvals : Emburse Spend

  • Reimbursement: Top grade and quick, directly to employees
  • Extras: Syncs expenses with accounting software
  • User complaints: Tech problems with reimbursements

Emburse Spend made our pick as the best expense tracking app for quick reimbursement. It provides the fastest processing of all the apps on our list. The app drafts expenses from reliable data sources such as receipts, card transactions, past behavior, CRM fields, and geolocation, ensuring that the records are complete and accurate.

Drafts expenses from receipts, card transactions, past behavior, CRM fields, and geolocation,

Reimburses employees directly

Sync expenses into accounting software

Users report tech issues, particularly with reimbursements

App sometimes fails to scan receipts properly

What gives Emburse Spend the edge is its ability to automate expense policy and approval hierarchy. Policy rules are applied to expenses before they're submitted, preventing any violations. Custom routing rules then send the expense to approver who is the best match. Emburse Spend handles the reimbursement once an expense has been approved and directly deposits it into the employee's bank account.

You can sync expenses into accounting software using either cash or accrual method, and custom analysis reports help you identify trends and manage budgets more effectively.

Some users report tech issues, a particularly serious issue given that Emburse Spend is responsible for reimbursing employees directly. Users also report problems scanning receipts.

Best For Digitization Of Receipts : Shoeboxed

  • Reimbursement: Good digital reimbursement receipt system
  • Extras: Mileage tracking
  • User complaints: Subscription required for use of all tools

There's absolutely no need to use a complicated expense tracking solution if you own a small business. Shoeboxed made the cut in our list of best expense tracking apps because it offers receipt digitization and organization.

Digitizes and organizes receipts

One-click mileage tracking

Expenses can be imported into accounting software

Must subscribe to the app's Professional or Business plans for digitization and organization

Mileage tracker crashes

App has difficulties orienting receipt images to properly import data

Shoeboxed lets you track receipts, mileage, and even business cards, without needing any manual data entry operations. Just snap a picture of the receipt and the app extracts all the information from it. Receipts can be sorted into common tax categories and instantly archived.

The app supports one-click mileage tracking and lets you e-mail generated expense reports in seconds. Expenses can be further exported to other solutions such as QuickBooks, Wave Accounting, Outright, and Xero.

The most interesting thing about Shoeboxed is that converted reports are verified by humans for maximum accuracy. You can simply mail all your receipts and other paperwork to Shoeboxed in a "Magic Envelope" and they'll digitize and organize them for you. That said, you must subscribe to one of Shoeboxed's upper tier plans (Professional and Business) in order to avail the service.

The app may digitize your receipts, but some users report problems with the mileage tracker crashing. Other users report having to take pictures of receipts multiple times for the app to orient the image properly so data can be imported.

Expensify took our top spot because its features will satisfy most people's expense tracking needs, but every business is different. And you might need an expense tracking app with certain features. Whatever your needs, you're sure to find an expense tracking app on our list.

6 Ways to Track Monthly Expenses

However, this does not influence our evaluations. Our opinions are our own. Here is a list of our partners and here's how we make money .

Tracking your expenses on a regular basis can give you an accurate picture of where your money is going — and where you’d like it to go instead.

Then, by using a budget, you can accurately account for all the bills you need to pay going forward. But before you start plugging numbers into a spreadsheet or app, take a minute to list out each of your expenses.

Here’s how to get started tracking your expenses.

1. Check your account statements

Pinpoint your money habits by taking inventory of all of your accounts, including your checking account and all credit cards you have. Looking at your accounts will help you identify your spending patterns.

Your spending will consist of both fixed expenses and variable expenses . Fixed expenses are less likely to change from month to month. They include mortgage or rent, utilities, insurance and debt payments. You'll have more room to adjust variable expenses like food, clothing and travel.

2. Categorize your expenses

Begin by grouping your expenses into different categories. Categorizing your expenses will help you not only track how much you’re spending, but also see where your money is going.

Some personal finance websites and credit cards automatically tag your purchases in categories like “department store” or “automotive” to help you identify themes. You might find that those impulse buys at Target are costing you a lot. Or maybe you’ll realize you’re paying for recurring subscription services that you could do without.

Another way to categorize your expenses is by breaking them down into needs, wants and savings/debts. This way of categorizing and tracking your expenses is known as the 50/30/20 budget, which you’ll learn more about in the next step.

3. Build a budget that works for your expenses

After categorizing your expenses, the next step to consider is creating a budget. A budget can help you take steps to reduce your spending where necessary. At NerdWallet, we recommend using the 50/30/20 budget . However, there are other budgeting methods that might be a better fit for you, like the envelope system or zero-based budgeting .

For the 50/30/20 budget, divide your net income into three categories: 50% for needs, including minimum payments on debt; 30% for wants; and 20% for savings and debt paydown beyond minimums.

Sorting your expenses into needs and wants can help you organize your budget and prioritize spending, especially if you need to trim costs to make room for savings or debt repayment. Here is a breakdown of each category in the 50/30/20 budget. We also have a calculator below to help you run the numbers.

These are the expenses you cannot avoid like monthly bills. If you use the 50/30/20 budget , these should account for 50% of your spending. Necessities often include the following:

Housing: Mortgage or rent; homeowners or renters insurance; property tax (if not already in the mortgage payment).

Transportation: Car payment, gas, maintenance and auto insurance; public transportation.

Health care: Health insurance; out-of-pocket medical costs.

Life insurance.

Utilities: electricity and natural gas; water; sanitation/garbage; internet; cell phone and/or landline.

Groceries , toiletries and haircuts, and other essentials.

Child care, child support or alimony.

Minimum payments on debt: credit cards, student loans and other loans.

If you find your budget is way out of whack, look closely at those items you’ve classified as needs and consider negotiating , refinancing or downgrading.

These expenses, also called discretionary expenses , may be harder to account for in a budget, as they don’t always come with a set monthly fee. If you use the 50/30/20 budget, wants can account for up to 30% of your spending.

Clothing, jewelry, etc.

Dining out, special meals in (steaks for the grill, etc.).

Movie, concert and event tickets.

Gym or club memberships.

Travel expenses (airline tickets, hotels, rental cars, etc.).

Cable or streaming packages.

Self-care treats like spa visits and pedicures.

Home decor.

Scan your spending for the past few months to get a sense of what your wants are and how much you tend to spend on them. Have each adult in your household do the same if you're creating a family budget . This exercise gives you a realistic baseline. You can use what you’ve learned to make small changes in your spending over time.

Savings and debt repayment

This is the money you’re putting toward your retirement, emergency fund and other savings, and using to pay down high-interest credit card and other "bad" debt like payday loans. It also includes anything over the minimum payment on your "good debts" such as your student loans and mortgage. In the 50/30/20 budget, this should account for 20% of your income:

Emergency fund.

Savings account.

Individual retirement account.

Other investments.

Extra debt payments on credit cards (see budget tip below), mortgage, student loans, etc.

If you pay off your credit cards in full each month, classify the expenses according to what you buy — groceries under needs, for example. However, if you maintain a balance and are accruing interest and fees, list payments beyond the minimum under debt repayment .

Every few months, revisit your budget and adjust as necessary. Consider using a budget app to track your expenses, saving time as you build momentum with your new budgeting habit. If you get stuck, try these budgeting tips .

The 50/30/20 budget calculator

4. use budgeting or expense-tracking apps.

Budgeting apps are designed for on-the-go money management, letting you allocate a certain amount of spendable income each month depending on what you’re taking in and what you’re paying out. These types of apps will work if you’re willing to log your purchases, put in the time and stick to your budget.

NerdWallet has also identified the best expense tracking apps based on ratings and popularity among users.

5. Explore other expense-tracking methods

Not a fan of apps? A spreadsheet is another valuable money-tracking tool. You can find a variety of free budget templates online, and NerdWallet also offers an online budget worksheet .

Or, if you have a more complex financial situation, such as investments or a business, you might consider Quicken, which lets you import bank transactions and monitor your investments. Quicken offers desktop software with extensive budgeting and tracking features. Subscriptions are billed annually and average monthly costs for the desktop software range from $4.99 to $9.99.

6. Look for ways to lower your expenses

As you track, be ready to make adjustments. Lowering the big fixed expenses in your life, like the cost of housing, vehicles and utilities, can make a significant impact on your budget.

Beyond that, check out additional ways to save money that can give you some breathing room.

10 best expense tracker apps for Android

Mint best expense tracker apps for Android

Expense tracking is an important life skill. Self-employed people especially need to keep track of expenses for tax season. Even normal people can benefit from a good budget. Luckily, there’s nearly an endless number of ways to track your expenses. Your bank app can help, but there are other apps specifically for this purpose. Whether it’s keeping the IRS off your back or just trying to save up, here are the best expense tracking apps for Android to help.

The best expense tracker apps for Android


  • Microsoft Excel

Money Lover

Your banking app.

Price: Free / $3.99

AndroMoney is an excellent, albeit simple expense tracker. You can keep tabs on multiple accounts, backup your stuff over the cloud, and various ways to view your spending statistics. The app keeps it simple by not having a lot of extra stuff that people generally don’t use. You input your accounts, add in your expenditures, and see what you spent money on over the course of a year.

We also like that the premium version is a single price and not a subscription, a boon to people trying to spend less money.

Price: Free / $129.99 per year

Every Dollar is another decent budgeting and expense tracker app. The app lets you create custom monthly budgets, track your expenditures, set custom reminders to pay your bills, and do various things like that. The app has a simple layout that’s mostly easy to use, at least after you get everything set up.

It leans a bit more toward budgeting rather than expenditures, but it’s certainly helpful if you’re keeping track of the books for independent contractors.

Price: Free / $5-$9 per user per month

Expensify is another excellent app for managing business expenses specifically. The app includes multiple ways to track your business spending, good basic features like receipt scanning, and other stuff like that. It was recently updated in 2021 with some fresh UI elements, although long-time users do say it’s a little more difficult to get around the app. Regardless, the app was custom-built for expense tracking.

The free version should work fine for most folks. The premium subscription is mostly for enterprise use.

Price: Free

Fuelio screenshot 2020

A lot of folks drive for work and Fuelio can help with that. It’s a gas and mileage log where you can easily input how far you drove and how much gas it cost you. It can also help you find nearby gas stations and cheaper gas. The app uses GPS to keep track of your distance traveled. It also works with bi-fuel vehicles.

You can back up your data on Dropbox or Google Drive, get reminders for things like odometer counts, and more. Drivers should definitely check this one out.

Microsoft Excel (or similar apps)

Price: Free / $6.99 per month / $69.99 per year

Microsoft Excel screenshot

Those looking for something simple can use the good old spreadsheet approach. You simply configure your spreadsheet and add all of the various items you need. I personally use a method like this for my business expenditures as a tech blogger and it works fairly well as long as you remember to keep up with it.

We linked Microsoft Excel because it’s the most recognizable one, but Google Drive’s Sheets function works just as well in most cases. You can store both in the cloud and edit them there so you never need to worry about losing your data. For the most part, both options are free.

Price: Free / $0.99

Mint screenshot 2021

Mint is one of the biggest names in expense tracking and budgeting. The app lets you track your transactions across all of your accounts, monitor your expenses, and even keep track of your investment accounts. There’s also support for cryptocurrency. It’s a decent all-in-one spot for all of those things.

The one downside is how Mint keeps changing its UI. It’s very clunky to use even after you get used to it. The pros outweigh the cons, but the continued complexity added to the app keeps it from being the slam dunk offering it once was.

Price: Free / $2.49

Monefy is another financial organizer app that works quite well. It takes a more manual approach where you add records every time you spend money. Thus, you can more easily keep track of only some types of expenses if you want to go that route.

Some other features include Google Drive and Dropbox support, multi-currency support, a decent budget tracker, and the ability to collaborate with another person. It’s simple enough to be effective, but powerful enough to be useful.

Price: Free / $34.99

Money Lover is a budgeting app with some powerful features. You can connect your various accounts to the app, connect your bills to the app, and then automate your bill paying. That makes life easier just on the face of it. Some other features include an expense tracker with a nifty pie chart, categories so you can keep track of business stuff, and a decently simple UI.

The premium version unlocks a bunch of stuff and is rather pricy, but it does got on sale fairly frequently so we’d recommend waiting for a sale.

Wallet is a good finance manager. It’s built to help people save money, manage expenses, and plan for the future. The premise of this one is to get a lot of the extras out of the way, so you can set clear goals in regard to your finances. The app connects to your bank and automatically syncs with it.

You can create budgets, view reports, check out planned payments, and share the account with other people. It can also track receipts and export to CSV, XLS, and PDF so it’s also perfectly usable, come tax time.

Chase Bank screenshot 2021

Your banking app may have the features you’re looking for depending on the bank. It obviously shows you how much money you have, your recent transactions, and you’ll need bank statements for a variety of things like car loans. Some banks include things like daily insights into your spending, budget tracking, and you can even track expenses on some apps.

Your bank probably won’t do it as well as one of the others listed, but if your needs are simple and your bank is equipped to help, it’s worth checking first to save yourself time and money.

How To Make Your Own Free Daily Expenses App

Personal Finance · Money Management & Financial Planning

Woman using smartphone to log her grocery expenses

One of the very first articles I wrote for this blog, before it was even called Stepping Stones to FI, was on how to track your monthly expenses . Shortly after, I wrote the companion post on how to create a budget you can actually stick to . 

I created my first downloadable freebies for the Resource Library , printable pdf monthly expense tracking and budgeting forms. This is what you need to do as a personal finance blogger after all. 

But the truth is, I don’t actually find these forms to be the most helpful . They are great starter forms. If you’ve been ignoring your personal finances, never knowing where your money goes until you check your bank account and ensure it isn’t empty, then these are good forms. They will step you through the process of learning what your general expense categories are and find out exactly where your money goes. 

In fact, in the very beginning stages, it’s very beneficial to print something out and handwrite your daily spending. It will take more time to do this and you will learn a lot about your spending habits in the process. 

Need to cut your expenses, too? Use this free workbook to dramatically cut your spending, even when money is tight…..

But once you become more familiar with your personal finances, it’s time to graduate to a more in depth expense tracking system. Certainly one that is quicker and easier to use. 

Not everyone is a spreadsheet junkie like I am. And so I’ve been reluctant to share my personal system of expense tracking and budgeting. It’s not a clean and tidy system on the whole. And it’s not very pretty. To anyone else, expense tracking spreadsheet and monthly household budget probably looks cluttered and indecipherable.

But it works for me. And it may very well be the solution you’ve been hoping to find. 

In this post I will outline exactly how to create a personal expense tracker using Google forms and then how to turn your form responses into an expense tracking spreadsheet within Google Sheets. Additionally, I’ll provide a monthly budget template using Google Sheets. 

How to create your free personalized spending tracker app

First off, I need to give credit where credit is due. I first learned this technique while listening to my favorite podcast, BiggerPockets Money Podcast. Episode 7 was an interview with Mr. and Mrs. Waffles on Wednesday. They have a post on how to turn a Google Forms document into a personal expense tracking app that you can access right from the home screen of your smartphone. While there are other resources to step you through the process, I found their article easy to follow.

While Mr. WoW already outlined the process, and I highly recommend you reference back to his post, I’ve provided the process again. Everyone learns differently and I wanted to highlight my personal experience creating my own personalized form and spreadsheet. I am not tech savvy like Mr. WoW, so I’ve tried to provide the steps in the way that I muddled through them.

In case you’re wondering, it took me about 20 minutes to establish my fully customized app and understand the resulting spreadsheet created to track spending. It took me another 2 hours playing around with exactly how I wanted to convey the information in my expense tracking spreadsheet.

Screenshot of using Google Form as a mobile app to track expense transactions, then easily view a breakdown of spending across expense categories for the month so you can stay within budget.

Step One: Create a new Google Form 

If you don’t already have a Google account (like a gmail address), be sure to do this first. Then open up a blank Google Form. 

Title the form “Expense Tracking” or something similar. 

Screenshot of creating a new Google form and adding a title to the first question

Create your form questions

Question #1 on your new form will be the date of the transaction. The form will automatically provide the response type as a date. You can then pick the format that you use. I’m accustomed to using month / day / year, but you can change this if you like. 

Your next question will be the category of expense you need to record. Since Google is pretty smart, the form will likely automatically assign this question a dropdown menu. 

Fill in each “Option #” with an appropriate expense category. Since I’m setting up a new form specifically for tracking my blogging expenses, I’m using categories that I need to track come tax time. On my personal expense tracking form I included my most common categories.

Screenshot of how to create Expense Categories within Google Forms as a dropdown menu for tracking daily expenses.

Question #3 will be where this transaction transpired. Following in WoW footsteps, I used titled this question “Vendor”. Again, Google is pretty darn smart and automatically assigned the question type “short answer”, which is appropriate. You could use a dropdown menu if you don’t make purchases all over the place. Sometimes I feel like I spend money right and left, every which way, so I just fill-in-the-blank. 

Question #4 will be the amount that you paid. I titled this “Amount” and Google automatically assigned the rule that this will be a short answer that is always a number.

Screenshot how to create your amount value as a number in Google Forms for tracking daily spending.

For Question #5 I used “Payment Type” with a dropdown menu to include the credit cards I use, cash, check or other. This isn’t necessary for basic expense tracking but I like to track this. 

Save and share this post by adding it to your favorite Pinterest board

Email your form to yourself

In the upper right corner of the form, you will see a “SEND” button. Click on this and email the form to yourself. 

Screenshot of how to send a Google Form to your own email.

Save your form on your smartphone home screen

Using your phone, open your Google expense tracking form within your email. Saving this form to your home screen will vary depending on your phone. I have an iPhone and I was able to easily select the option to send the form to my home screen, similar to if I was adding a page as a bookmark or emailing it to someone. 

Save to home screen on iPhone and Android

Open your Google Form in your email so that you can save it to your smartphone home screen.

Once you have saved your form, open it and enter a few expenses. The form will reload for every expense transaction.

Turn your expense tracking Google Form responses into a Google Sheets

Go back to edit your expense tracking form. Up until now you have been editing your form in the “QUESTIONS” tab. Click over to the “RESPONSES” tab and turn your form into a spreadsheet. Click on the small green icon in the upper right corner of your form. Click on “CREATE” and your new spreadsheet will load in a new tab.

Once you add some expenses through your Google Form app, you will see your new form responses auto populated in your spreadsheet. The next step is to create a pivot table. Go to Data > Pivot table. 

Screenshot of how to create a Pivot table from Form responses in Google sheets

A new tab will open with your new expense tracking spreadsheet. There are a few things you have to adjust in order for this spreadsheet to track your category spending totals. 

  • You will need to set the data range. In the right side pivot table toolbar, select the data range. It will say “form responses” and then the cell range selected. With this window open, toggle back over to the first spreadsheet “form responses” and select the “B” Column. Hold the shift key down and then select the last column with responses. In my case, I wanted the “H” Column.
  • Going back to the pivot table tab, you will see a field titled “Rows” with an “Add” button. Select add, then select your expense categories. 
  • Under “Rows”, select “Add” again and include your vendor, or however you label where the expense took place within your form. 
  • Now go down to “Columns” and add your Date and Amount columns. I also added a Payment Type column so I can keep track of which credit cards I use. 
  • Finally, under “Values” you will add “Amount” again. This will provide the total amount you spend across your categories and the month. 
  • And now you have a fancy personal monthly expense tracking spreadsheet that automatically updates for you in Google Sheets. 

Screenshot of highlighting the right form response columns to create a pivot table in Google sheets.

Use your personal expense tracking app daily

Because this handy form is saved right to your smartphone home screen, and you always have your phone on you, you will be able to quickly add every expense you encounter throughout your daily life. When you receive a bill or automatic payment notification, just go back to your form and quickly enter the info. 

Adjust your pivot table to highlight specific expense tracking information

After using my expense tracking app daily, I found that I wanted to personalize my entries even more. I’ve been using one for my individual expenses and one for my blogging expenses. (Yes, it takes a lot to provide all the content here on SStoFI!) Since I recently combined finances with my partner, it’s been confusing trying to track what is a personal expense, a joint expense and attempt to understand my partner’s expenses as well.

I added some additional questions to my form, such as “expense type” with drop down options including whether a purchase was personal, joint or my partner’s.

Then I wanted my spreadsheet to highlight just one expense type at a time. So I created new pivot tables for each one.

Be sure to play around with your pivot table and find ways to utilize the information from your Google Form responses.

Create a monthly expenses and budget template in Google Sheets

Now that you have daily expense tracking down, it’s time to set up your new budget. I finally took the time to clean up the spreadsheet that I have used for the last 10 years. You can download it by visiting the Resource Library. If you aren’t already an awesome SStoFI subscriber, now’s your chance to get signed up. I continually add new free resources to the library. 

Use the link to open the shared Google Sheet. Be sure you don’t make your edits here! Save a copy for yourself and edit your personal version. Otherwise, we will all be able to follow along with your personal expenses and budget!

Review the provided expense categories for more ideas

Because you’ve been using your daily personal expense tracking Google Form, you already have an idea of what expense categories make sense for you and your household spending. If you need some additional ideas, I have compiled a list of over 150 expense tracking categories. 

Screenshot of personal expense categories to use when tracking expenses and creating a budget

I even have a whole post on this which you can visit here !

Once you have saved your own personal expense tracking spreadsheet, you will see that the first sheet tab is titled “Expenses” and the second tab is for “Expenses categories”. 

Using the “Expenses” spreadsheet tab, edit the fields to match your personal situation

I have included a basic budget with typical expense categories. This is where the “personal” in personal finance comes in. 

My expenses are obviously not yours. 

Toggle over to the “Expense categories” tab for ideas and inspiration. You can include only the categories you use within your personal daily expense tracking Google form app, or you can include more detailed breakdown of your monthly and annual expenses. 

Tip: I keep my form more generalized so that it doesn’t take forever to scroll through the expense category dropdown menu. For my budget, I expand each of these categories into a more detailed breakdown. 

Add lines as necessary

You will likely do quite a bit of editing to this monthly budget spreadsheet. That’s perfectly fine and appropriate. You can add or delete lines as necessary. I simply provided the organization and formatting so that you can quickly navigate the sheet. 

Also of notice, I have groupings of categories rather than a long column of all expenses. This is simply how I prefer to visualize my budget. It isn’t standard accounting practice, but hey, it works for me. 

Check each expense category total

Each expense category within the monthly budget template has its own total. Make sure that all individual entries under the parent category is included in the total calculation. 

Closeup screenshot of a sample budget category tracking monthly transportation expenses

As you can see in the above screenshot, I’ve assigned all the spending amounts a $1 expense. At the bottom is the total of all the transportation expenses. As you edit these values you’ll want to check that it all still calculates out correctly. 

Pay attention to annual expenses and include them in your monthly totals

An important expense category that I’ve included in the Google sheet is for all your annual expenses. These can easily slip through the budgeting cracks and catch you by surprise. I like to comb through my banking transactions over the last year in order to uncover any unusual, unplanned or annual expenses. Then I include these in my budget sheet. 

You will see that this expense category has the total at the bottom, as well as a monthly total (total annual expenses divided by 12). I include this total into my total monthly expenses so that I can account for this extra spending. 

Enter income totals

Finally, enter in all forms of monthly (and annual) income. How you track an annual bonus depends on how you typically spend that bonus. I don’t like to count on that bonus and prefer to stay within my standard monthly income throughout the year. Any bonus therefore goes right to savings. 

However, if you use that bonus to cover annual expenses or you keep it in savings and use it slowly over the next year to help with monthly expenses, you can add it to your income column as a monthly amount. 

Review how much you have left over

Now for the fun part, calculate the difference between your take home income and your monthly expenses. Hopefully this is a positive number, meaning you bring in more money than you spend every month. If it is a negative number, review your category totals and see if you have any errors. If you don’t, and you notice that you are depleting your bank account every month and relying on credit cards to cover the difference, it’s time to review this budget and find ways to cut back on spending.

You now have a daily expense tracking app and a monthly budget template!

  • Personal expense tracker google sheets

If you have been procrastinating on tracking your monthly expenses or following a budget, now’s the time to get started. 

Taking control of your finances is emotionally challenging. It’s overwhelming when you don’t which steps to take first or how to go about understanding your personal situation. All you know is that you aren’t saving enough money and you don’t know how to fix it. 

By setting up a system that is easy to use and readily available, you increase the chances that you will use it often. Simply using it daily for a month will build the new habit of tracking your money. Once you start tracking your money, you begin to develop an awareness of your spending habits. 

This is the first step to changing your money mindset. 

Use this personal expense tracker in Google Sheets to make financial tracking and budgeting a habit. You will be able to take back control of your finances and begin to set and achieve new financial goals. And that is a darn good feeling.

A handy and a must have utility app.

If you are someone who wants to keep track of your daily and monthly expenses so as to limit yourself from spending way beyond your budget then this app is for you. For the past few months this app has helped me to track my daily expenses which otherwise would have taken me paper and pen to note down and sometimes out of laziness I would miss it, but with this app there are less chances I would miss out and even if I did miss out on the day, then I can enter the very next day. The app has the feature to edit dates. Personally recording my daily expenses helps me to stay mentally aware of my budget and I have realised after using this app my unnecessary spendings has reduced. Which I am very thankful for the creator of this app, made my life easier. I use the free version, which has ads popping up every time I open it, that’s annoying sometimes but all I have to do is to close the ad page so that’s not so much of issues for me, I can live with it. 😀 Overall a very good and handy app. Try if for yourself and say it yourself!

The Best expense tracker app.

I must say this is the best income and expense tracker app available on App Store, which has a very beautiful and simple user interface. I love this app bcz it’s not subscription-based, but if you want cloud backup and restore feature then you could buy this at a very low price. Otherwise the free version has every feature available. It is available for other platforms as well so I could use it on my PC also. Overall it has been a great experience. Believe me if you are looking for a good expense and income tracker app this one is for you. Great job team MH Riley👍👍👍. ********** *Request* : Please add option for “Pending” Expense and Income as well. Bcz it is also a part of the book. So it’s my humble request please bring this feature to this app.

Simple, User Friendly and Necessary App

First of all, I feel this app is completely helpful for me in my last one month usage. Planning to upgrade my plan to pro version. However, I have noticed the reminder option is not working. I set to remind me daily around by 9 PM but I didn’t get notification / reminder in none of days. So, I request developers to take look and resolve this issue in the next update. Thank you! [24 Jan 2023, Updated Comment] : Given 5 star rating now. This app very helpful for me. I recommend this app to everyone who are like to track their expenditures. User friendly and not much costly. Thank you for this service.
