Tech tools to help you master your finances
Remember chequebooks? Think back to the days when we used to carry them around to make everyday purchases and spend Sunday nights balancing them. That little book helped us stay organized and on budget. But that’s all changed in this digital age. We’re now more likely to tap a card, log online or use our smartphone to spend and manage money. Technology makes transactions faster and simpler, and the beauty is that we can do it while we wait for our friend to arrive at the coffee shop.

Tech tools just make logging it a lot more convenient. Here are some of our favourites.
