Editors' Review

by   / June 17, 2009

Keeping your family's budget on track can be a difficult, if not frustrating, experience. We found that Simple Home Money Manager lives up to its title with an easy-to-use approach that makes it easy to know where your money is going.

The program's clean interface is easy to understand, but we liked the start-up wizard that takes users through the various steps of organizing their budget. With simple-to-understand categories of incoming and outgoing money, it's easy to enter individual items. Users can designate an entry's recurrence, add a note, and can even assign an icon. At the end of the Wizard session, users set their budget and they're ready to go. We were highly impressed with how simple this task was.

From there, a multicolored menu along the left side allows users to view accounts, make changes and run reports about their family's saving and spending habits. We liked the easy-to-understand graphs that show expenditure by category, and other budget information.

Our only complaints with the program are minor and have to do with installing and uninstalling the program. It adds a desktop shortcut without asking, and you'll need to manually delete a folder after you remove the program from your computer. Still, Simple Home Money Manager presents an intuitive program that practically anyone can jump right into using. The 15-day trial is short, but should still be long enough to fully evaluate the program. We highly recommend this program for anyone looking to stay on budget.
