Super useful budgeting tool

I’ve been using this app for about 7 months and and it’s been far more useful than I would have thought to begin with. Setting up budgets and keeping to them is very easy - you can’t spend money you don’t have in your spending account. It has helped me to make long term plans which is awesome.

Overall, I have recommended this app to several friends who also found Squirrel useful. There are a couple of features, like standing orders out of squirrel directly which would be nice, but nothing major to complain about. Oh, and the customer service has been exceptional so far!

turned my finances around

Until I started using squirrel, I thought I was being pretty conservative with spending, and I couldn’t figure out why I was ending up sinking further into debt. Squirrel has really transformed how I manage my money. For the first time in a long time I feel back in control of my finances - it’s so easy to see exactly what my monthly commitments are. I have set up savings goals to pay off my credit cards before their 0% interest rate expires, and I know exactly how much disposable income I have to play with each week. I’m now on track to get back in the black and I can’t thank squirrel enough for that!

Couldn’t recommend enough!

As almost all of the other reviews say, this app is great and has helped with my finances no end. I ended up in my overdraft every month without fail and since I have been using squirrel (two pay days so far) I haven’t come close! Not only that; I’m paying off my credit card debt and making savings (£450 in two months!) - I had high hopes for this app but to do so much for me in such a short time, I really could not recommend this app enough to anyone who struggles with their finances. You get three months free (and it’s already saved me more than the annual cost anyway) so give it a go!
