Apps for spending less and saving more
There are many apps that help to save money, especially during times when costs are higher, like after vacations or in the month of January when the rising prices and the excess from holidays leave you with a big bill. The first app we suggest is Tus Gastos, an app available for iOS and Android that is part of the platform MyValue. You can keep track of your cash spending in a simple and easy way that lets you take total control of your finances. In this way, along with the platform MyValue, this allows control of all your income and direct debit, keeping all your money organized and making it easier for you to control your spending and avoid overspending. You can also compare incomes and spending to be able to designate more or less money depending on the balance.
The next app we suggest is Fintonic. This app, designed in Spain, is also available for Android and iOS and allows you to take control of all your different bank accounts in one platform. Fintonic also sends alerts related to commission charges, due dates, multiple charges and, best of all, they offer solutions and advice regarding finances and potential services taking into account your spending and income. This comprehensive and intuitive app makes it easier to control your finances so that you won’t miss any details and can save more each month.

Finally, we present an interesting web platform for saving money on food. One of the most useful ways to save is by comparing prices between supermarkets, although nowadays few have the patience and time to what our mothers did to save each month. It is for this reason that we have technology to make life easier, and thankfully, to assist with our finances as well. The website is called SoySúper, and while it is not an app, it is a useful and effective tool for saving on food each month. SoySúper compares prices of the majority of supermarkets in Spain, including Condis, Caprabo, Alcampo, Carrefour, Mercadona, Eroski, Día, El Corte Inglés and Hipercor, and you can do your shopping from the same platform from different large stores with lower prices. Each supermarket will take you shopping for corresponding items, but you should keep in mind the shipping fee of each one. Then you can see which supermarket purchase goes best and, if you think it’s worth the time, combine purchases at different supermarkets at the best prices. A great and practical tool to have.
