So, That's it!

2 months back
If you are like me, then there is a list prepared by your mother or wife sitting in your pocket reminding you to purchase some items on your way back home in the evening :) I slightly deviate from my regular walking route and reach the shop where I buy most of the household items. By the time I finish shopping and reach home I am almost dead tiered and never dare to imagine to sit and document how much money I spent few hours back.

1 month back
When Srushti's lab released a private beta version of Expense management application, ServeEase and suggested me to use. I am reluctant to use it until I explored the following feature.

Today
I always suggest my wife to include purchase items to "Expense" section of ServeEase. She does add items marking their price as zero.

So, everyday evening on my way back home, I make sure to check expense section on my mobile and get all items that are with zero price tag. That clearly hints me these are the items to be purchased for the day. As soon as I purchase them, track their cost whenever I find time (like..in the long wait for traffic signals or travelling by city bus) and that's it!


Once in two weeks, I navigate to "Accounts" and check reports section, that clearly present expense and current balance statement to me. End of the day I feel happy because that's all I wanted and ServeEase does it very nicely.

No doubt, it clearly helped me to analyze and control expenses. Saved time, saved some money!
