    This has been asked in other forms, but this is a bit different (I think):

    I am looking for budgeting software, but NOT to manage my checking accounts or savings accounts, etc. Really, I just want to plug in numbers for my expenses, credit card totals and interest rates and minimum payments, car payment and total; etc. Then I want it to crank out the best way to pay all of this stuff.

    Most of what I see are programs that first and foremost tell me what I am spending money on. I already know that.

    Any simple, straightforward budgeting software along these lines?

    Could you do this in Excel?

    as far as I know, Excel is a spreadsheet. I am not aware that it can analyze finances and make recommendations on a budget.

    Can you be more specific in what you're budgeting for? Maybe I can help? How many credit cards, auto loan? I'm certain excel would satisfy your needs with a few formulas.

    I can e-mail you a spreadsheet if you'd like

    Check out iBank if I were you.... But most, I stress the most of the applications on this search should be good for you...

    Look at www.snowmintcs.com . They have a couple of programs that can help. Budget (envelope budgeter) and Pay It Down (more suited to your needs I think)
