SpendLight is a simple spending journal
that helps you strengthen your spending habits.
The deliberate act of reflection helps cut down on mindless spending.
Often you'll reconsider a purchase
if you know you'll have to record it.
Most bills are paid monthly, but discretionary spending is more
naturally tracked on a weekly basis.
Mark your progress week by week to strengthen and speed up the feedback loop.
Handle Life's Surprises
Life often doesn't go according to plan. But that doesn't mean your spending goals
are a lost cause.
Even if an unplanned
life event breaks your budget, you still ought to determine whether you
reacted wisely to the circumstances.
Add a Spending Buddy
When you record and rate your spending, an SMS or email invites
your spending buddy to react with a rating of their own.
