Budgeting and educational tools to help you be accountable with your finances, gain control of spending and give you a visual interpretation of your financial goals.
We have recently participated in the Easy Budget 12week program and would highly recommend it to others. Before the program we were living week to week and had no idea where our money was actually going. We have found it a great insight into seeing where we truly are financially. The software and website are very easy to understand and has some excellent tools to help. Jonathan has been extremely helpful, understanding and flexible with fitting in with our busy schedule. We now feel confident and enlightened moving into the future.
I found the 12-week challenge to be a very enlighting and informative experience. Having a different subject to work on each week gave us a clear picture of our current financial situation but also helped us identify areas where we could be saving more and spending less. Even though we considered ourselves as being 'all over' our financial situation it was an eye opener and made identifying problem areas a breeze. Jonathan was a wealth of knowledge and was very punctual and kept us up to date throughout the whole experience. The Easybudget software and app was easy to use and well layed out. We would highly recommend Jonathan and Easybudget Oz.
I approached Jonathan about Easybudget to see if it was something that my partner and I could use to establish where all of our income was going and also determine if we could afford a second property. We decided to give the 12 week Reboot program a go. The first 4 weeks we were able to see that there was a lot of room for improvement in regards to certain categories of our spending. Take away, tolls, and groceries were quite high for a couple. Over the 12 week program we managed to cut down the spending in these categories. Easybudget provided tips to make this possible including techniques to cut down insurance costs. Jonathan helped us understand that our banking structure was far too complex and that we were most likely paying hidden fees with having such a complex banking system. He put forward some suggestions that we implemented which has made our finances much smoother and simpler. Overall Easybudget was perfect for the goals myself and my partner set. It has helped us achieve them over the 12 week program and now I have switched to cash flow independent to monitor my finances with the drive to continuously cut costs where I can.
I recently went through the process of the 12 week reboot program and would highly recommend it! The combination of the online tools, frequent reporting and weekly catch ups make for an insightful experience in identifying spending and behavioural patterns and then staying on track to break any bad habits and achieve longer term savings goals!
The Easybudget software allowed my family to identify the areas of spending that we had control over. All those coffees can add up! What was most beneficial though, was the conversations I had with Jonathan and my partner. Jonathan’s expertise and guidance allowed my husband and I to talk about our finances in a new way that benefited us and we touched on some subjects that were almost taboo for us as a couple. My husband and I found the right way to address some areas where there was overspending, and we could negotiate these areas without having an argument.
