What is the most simple online money manager that allows manual entries?

James Bruce January 31, 2011

I’m in need of an online money manager, free or paid, but can’t find anything suitable in my own searches.

These are my requirements:
– manual entry (can’t use mint.com because it needs to link with bank accounts) due to the international nature of PayPal, various banks etc.
– needs to be very simple or I won’t continue to use it
– handle multiple currencies if possible, if not then just US$

    The easiest online money manager is http://www.budgetmath.com. It only takes 5 minutes to use and works great.

    Based on what you want to do, I think ClearCheckbook will fulfill your needs:

      Thanks Fidelis, I'm leaning towards moneystrands more purely on a simplicity and visual point of view, but it's great to have an alternative if that doesn;t work out. Thanks!

    I just took a fast look at moneyStrands but it seems to be what you are looking for.


    They offer both, connection to your actual accounts at your Bank and Manual Accounts. You can even import CSV or other transaction log files to get your "history" into the system.

    Hope that helps

      Thanks Mike, that looks perfect, and it's quite an attractive looking system!
