Hi, I'm Budget Bot! I try to make budgeting less of a chore, and more like a fun chat. Say things like:
- Tell Budget Bot I spent $200 on rent
- Ask Budget Bot how much I spent on groceries in the past year
- Ask Budget Bot for personalized spending tips
You can tell me about your expenses using Alexa, Facebook Messenger, or the web and I'll put them all together at tellbudgetbot.com where you can view, modify, and visualize your spending. Budget Bot works best if you enter all your expenses so you'll get the most accurate suggestions and a full picture of your spending. Once you've used Budget Bot for at least a month, ask Budget Bot to "make a plan" and you will automatically receive a personalized monthly budget to help you keep your spending on track! Budget Bot can even notify you when you are spending more than you planned in a certain category.
