Technology, Family and Finance: It's Simple Really

If your family is anything like mine, you have one person who centrally takes care of the finances but two or more people actually spending the money. Depending on your financial situation or spending habits, this might not be much of an issue. In my case however it occasionally creates some issues when paying larger bills like mortgages and utilities. Sometimes that one transaction my wife does will throw off out balance and create an overdraft nightmare from hell. It's not her fault of course, it's the lack of communication that is really to blame. Here is how I came to use SIMPLE technology to solve the issue.

Lovely G+ and Me

So I'll try and keep this brief as possible - I've shed myself of the bullshit horrible bank job, so I actually enjoy what I do now. That said my blogging time is limited at best. I want to keep this blog a place where I can really post how I feel. I've linked my Google+ page on the bars to the right. For quick posts (funny vids, news stories, etc) I'll be posting them on my G+ wall publicly. Please follow me there as well.
