Keeping Track of Your Household Spending
is as Easy as Pie.
Everyone has a pie… how you spend your money determines the pieces of your pie; your budget is what you spend your money on. At Life By The Pie™ we’ve created the tools that allow you to see and understand your ingredients so you can determine how you want to slice your own pie.
Keeping track of your spending and putting it into context is everything. Knowing where your money is going is one thing, knowing what you can afford is another. See how much of your hard earned money goes to supporting the pieces of your pie. You don't create a budget, as much as you modify one. Remember, your budget is what you spend your money on, whether you know where it's going or not. The more you know, the better off you will be. Knowing where your money is going will allow you to make the best decisions for how you want to slice your pie.
See Where Your Money is Going Each Month
Life is full of surprises... and choices. Within the confines of your income, a dollar spent on one piece of your pie, is a dollar that cannot be spent on anything else. Once you know where your money is going, you can make better decisions about where you want your money to go. It's a matter of spending less on the things that don't give your life much fulfillment, and spending that money on the things that do.
You Can Afford That! Planning for Those Things You Want
Use the Future Pie's feature to see the impact of specific events and or choices on your life.

Future Pies can help you to plan for and manage just about anything life throws your way.
Financial Planning for the Future
How much you will need in retirement will largely be based on how much money you need to live right now! Looking at the complete, big picture, you will be in a great position to determine which of your current expenses will continue into retirement and which will not. What other expenses might you have in retirement? Put it all into a Future Pie to figure out how much you will need.
