If you’ve ever wondered how your personal spending habits match up with your neighbors, then Bundle is a web-app that can answer those questions once and for all. Part financial exploration tool, part money management application, Bundle offers statistical data based on location-based trends that people can use when setting their own budgets and tracking their own financial goals.
To set goals, track expenses, and curb bad spending habits, click on the “My Money” link and register for a free account. Add information for all the bank accounts, loans, and investment portfolios you’d like Bundle to track – similar to the way you’d add banking information on Mint.com – and a list of all your current spending habits will appear consolidated on one main screen. Manually categorize all of your latest purchases to create an even clearer picture of where your money is going. Bundle makes it possible to set monthly budgets, and creates custom graphs and charts that make it easy to see how you’re doing at any given time during the month.
Of course, the great part about Bundle – and the feature that really sets it apart from competing money management apps – is its comparison tools. Using financial data culled from credit card companies and government sources, Bundle allows its users to compare their spending patterns and monthly income to people in any city nationwide. Financial data can be broken down even further by selecting for age group, marital status, and income level. This information makes it easier to set accurate budgets that people can really stick to.
