Friday Link Love, Planwise & A Trip

Hi All!

It’s Friday once again, how does that happen so fast? And time for another round of link love. BUT first! I want to talk about Planwise.

What is Planwise?

Admittedly, I’m a little late to the game on this software, but essentially Planwise is a cool, free forecasting tool you can use to figure out things like debt free dates, time to savings goals, etc. You can input your goals, and potential life changes like a raise or budget savings to see how those things will affect your goals.

As a chronic planner, I find software like this to be pretty cool. It’s also a perfect compliment to my Mint.com accounts, which are pretty good are tracking historical data, but not so hot at forecasting.

If you’d like to check out Planwise, visit the Widget installed on this blog, or visit their website. Or, watch this quick video to see if Planwise is right for you.

Peace Out, Winter

On Sunday, I’m hoping on a plane and leaving this frigid tundra behind for the warmth of Dallas. I wasn’t very excited about this trip, since it’s a business trip and I’ll be working most of the time, but this latest blast of freezing weather has made me eager to get the hell out of here.

I’ve got some awesome guest posts lined up, so this blog won’t be going silent. Some of my favourite bloggers have volunteered their time to contribute posts, and I’m really excited to share them with you! Of course, I’ll be tweeting and instagraming all next week, so if you miss me too much, you can always follow me on those platforms.

    Hope you have a good trip to Dallas. I’ve only flown through Dallas, but do want to visit someday. Thanks again for letting me guest post while you’re gone in a few weeks.

    Thanks for the mention Jordann. I hope you enjoy your trip to Dallas. That Planwise tool is pretty cool and I use the one installed on my website. I like it!

  • Jason @ WorkSaveLive

    I’ve heard a lot about Planwise but I’ve yet to use it myself. I’m fairly old-fashioned and have grown accustomed to the way I budget and track out debt payoff progress. With that said, it would be a great tool for somebody that isn’t set in their ways or are just trying to focus on paying off debt/getting their finances in order for the first time.

    I hope you enjoy your trip and thanks for sharing my article!

    Thanks for sharing planwise I’m going to check it out. I use our own budgeting spreadsheet but the forecasting might be interesting. Have fun in Dallas even if it is for work…!!

    Have a great time in Dallas and thanks for the mention! It’s nice sometimes just to get away for a bit, even if it’s for work.
