The turn of the year is a great time to summarize what happened last year and share plans for the next 12 months.
2018 was a breakthrough year, as we started the Family Finance Tracker project. The idea came to our heads in April, but we started to work on the application at the beginning of September, after the summer holidays.read more

Today will be a short entry, rather informative, although it is quite important moment for us.
Public beta tests of our personal finance application were finally launched, after more than three months of work. I must honestly admit that, the biggest surprise for me during the preparations to run tests was the amount of time that I had to devote to the process of adding applications to mobile stores.read more
In the previous post, I described the Family Finance Tracker application in terms of functionality. The scope of works of the first version, which will be public, is already closed. At the moment I’m working on refining these functionalities.

We started recording expenses about half a year ago. We wanted to reorganize our approach to personal finance a bit, and for that we needed a summary of current situation and getting to know our habits. We had some fears at the beginning. We wondered if it makes any sense at all or the potential benefits will not be offset by the amount of effort that will have to be put into the whole process. We were worried whether we would have enough strong will, if we would have enough patience and meticulousness, so that the results we receive at the end of the month, would be meaningful in any way. However, after a short conversation, we came to the conclusion that it is worth a try. Fortunately, it was already after the first month that our fears were largely unjustified.read more
Have you ever wondered what you really spend money on?
How much does it take for food, how much for home maintenance, for the car, and how much for things that you really do not realize? Until recently, we did not know, and to be honest it was probably even comfortable for us. We earn quite well, it was enough for the majority of whims and the control of expenses seemed to us unnecessary and very troublesome.
