If you are serious about getting out of debt then you should already be using online tools and smartphone apps to manage your various bank accounts, loans and credit cards. Mint.com is our current favorite, but there’s a new contender stepping us his game.
Still officially in beta, Manilla is a free (and we like free) web-based tool that allows you to keep track of your financial accounts and bills with one simple interface and one login.
You can set up custom alerts so you don’t miss payments and get hit with later fees and higher interest rates.
What really sets Manilla apart from other aggregation tools is the ability for you to keep track of an amazing assortment of accounts outside of your typical banking providers.
This includes, but is not limited to, your utilities, cell phone provider, travel loyalty programs, magazine and Netflix subscriptions and even online coupons from sites like LivingSocial and Groupon.
And of course Manilla also is available as a smartphone app, for iPhone and Android users.
If you haven’t joined the 21st century and are still trying to keep track of your personal business with pen and paper statements, it’s time to step your game up.
Check out Manilla. It’s free and easy and you can’t afford not to get a handle on this stuff if you want to get out of debt.
