Farewell, sweet Wesabe
Boo-urns! I’ve really liked using wesabe! It’s helped me create a budget and to keep track of my spending and saving.
And now I’ve only got a month to figure out how I’m going to track my finances. I checked out wesabe’s competitor, Mint.com, but their system doesn’t work with Canadian accounts1, and from reading the forums there, there isn’t currently any online system that works with non-US accounts. Apparently wesabe is going to release their website & infrastructure as open source so you can run it on your own computer, but it sounds like you have to know quite a bit more about computers than I do to get it set up. So, I may be harassing one of my more tech-savvy friends to set it up for me, but I figure I should have a back up plan in case it doesn’t work or in case they don’t get it released by the end of July.
Possibilities I can think of at the moment:
- buy MS Money or Quicken
- use Excel (though that seems like a lot of extra work)
- give up and go on a crazy spending spree, wasting all my money on candy and shoes!
Anyone have any other suggestions?
- they claim they are working on getting it set up for Canada, but I’m not going to hold my breath [↩]
