How Does It Work?
Follow the Centsible three step budgeting approach to create a budget you are more likely to stick with
Plan for your monthly expenses
Most budgeting starts with the basics - your monthly expenses. Any bills you have monthly can be planned for up front. You can do that in Centsible using Plans. No need to remember how much to fund each bill. Plan for it and get a shortcut every month to fund that exact amount.
Create sinking funds
A sinking fund is a fund where you set aside a little bit of money for a period of time in order to make a big purchase. Think vacations, clothing, yearly insurance, or subscriptions. We know the bill is coming. But it is so far out in the future we forget. When the bill comes due it throws our budget out of whack, leading some to think budgets do not work. You can create a sinking fund in Centsible by using Plans with an end date.
Once you have your category plans set up it's time to track expenses. Your category available total shows you how much money you have planned to spend. Enter your transactions and Centsible keeps track of all the totals for you. If you ever spend more money than you expected to in any category you can move money from another category to cover your spending.

We understand there are some popular apps which are free. But nothing is ever free. They harvest your data to sell you ads. At Centsible we do not believe something as personal as your finances should be sold to the highest bidder.
Instead we want to build a sustainable product without needing to resort to dirty tricks to make money. It's simple. We make a darn good budgeting app and you pay to use it. No ads or data harvesting. Your data is your data.
