    I set up a user account for my wife on the same laptop. How do I give her access to the same data I use (with my user account) for certain applications?
    For instance, I'd like her to be able to access the same data for YNAB that I do, same 1Password data as mine, Turbotax, etc.

    The easiest method that I have found is Dropbox.

    I know that 1Password can use Dropbox. When we started using it that was the preferred method. I don't know about your other applications.

    There is a folder at /Users/Shared that all accounts can access. That might do the trick for you.

    So just move the data files I need to this location?

    Yes exactly. Both accounts can see the data there.
