When it comes to #adulting, one of the most difficult components is figuring out how to manage your own finances. Suddenly jumping (or, more accurately, being shoved off a diving board) into a sea of bills, insurance, overdraft coverage, and credit scores can make all of us feel like we're drowning. Remind us why we were never forced to take accounting 101?
Good news is we can solve many of these problems from our fingertips — from our smartphones, that is. Forget balancing your checkbook by hand and instead turn to these five budgeting apps. They promise to make the process of tracking and organizing income and purchases a painless one. You're just five downloads away from nailing personal finance.
