Vera Gibbons wrote a great article about how to digitize your personal finances over at Reuters. What’s even nicer about the article is I’m quoted in it!
I tested out some receipt trackers for the iPad. Here is my section:
After Justin Esgar, of Wayne, New Jersey, launched his own app, SignMyPad – a paperless solution for his company’s work tickets/order sheets – he started to look into other ways to go green.
“I saw firsthand that the technology was there and I was tired of spending money on toner and paper,” he says.
Weary of managing dozens of business and personal receipts each month while on the go, Esgar recently tried two receipt trackers: Shoeboxed and Lemon. While both do the job just fine – receipts are scanned, digitized, saved and categorized – Esgar says that Lemon has the upper hand.
“It’s a more robust, well versed program,” he said. “Able to put more details in, it syncs with all your devices (as well as with an online account) and you can export receipts instantly.”
