Which version of Quicken should I invest in?

My DH and I have settled on a budget utilizing the "envelope" system incorporated with the "Dave Ramsey" plan. He has started to invest in 401K and I will too by this summer. We are planning to invest in our first home, and maintain school loans, "snowball", and possibly look at

    first home, and maintain school loans, "snowball", and possibly look at

    investing by the end of the year. We've always used TaxAct.com to file

    our taxes, but this may be the first year we will be itemizing.



    Any suggestions to which one is more for us? I had utilized

    Mvelopes.com last year, but had trouble keeping up with the monthly

    membership. I would rather invest in a "budget" type program that I

    could get the most of in one shot.



    Quicken Basic ($29.99), Deluxe ($49.99), or Premiere ($69.00)?

    Catherine,



    I use Basic and have for years. Since you were using the envelope
    system it's my guess that Basic would work for you too. It has a ton of
    features and is capable of more than I've needed it for. What I suggest
    is that you go to Quicken's website (or Best Buy or wherever) and look
    at the extra features you get with the more expensive versions. If
    you'd use them and they're worth the price to you, go for it!
    Otherwise, stick with Basic.

    I would start out with a notebook and a pen.
    Or Microsoft Excel, just to get every debt/expense/penny written down.
    Until you are fully aware of every single thing, there is no real reason to invest in a computer program.

    I hear that Quicken is a good one. I have used Microsoft Money in the past, but I prefer the Excel spreadsheet. I can even make up a pie chart to track our spending.

    We are working with the Ramsey ideas ourself. Decided to put the tax refund into the bank to take care of the emergency fund. The snowballing is happening afterwards. I am determined to conquer the debts and financial situation ASAP.

    While I don't have a preference to recommend for you, just want to

    remind you to take advantage of the fabulous sales on those money

    management software packages at various office supply stores with tax

    software at this time of year.



    I got my Quicken free that way, and there are always great rebate offers.



    Oh, just found an offer on Staples online for Microsoft Money Deluxe

    2007 for $19.99 after rebates or even free if you also make a H&R tax

    software purchase. Hope it is okay to post the link:

    <a href="http://www.staples.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/StaplesProductDisplay?prodCatType=1&storeId=10001& noredir=true&catalogId=10051&langId=-1&productId=151400&cmArea=FEATURED:SC3:CG5P1437">http://www.staples.com/webapp/wcs/st...lay?prodCatTy\

    pe=1&storeId=10001&noredir=true&catalogId=10051&la ngId=-1&productId=151400&cmAre\

    a=FEATURED:SC3:CG5P1437</a>



    If any problem, just go to Staples website and search for "Microsoft

    Money Deluxe 2007." There may be other offers out there also for

    Quicken. Just did a quick search.



    Good luck!

    Oh, followup to my earlier post on rebates/sale prices...Quicken is

    also on sale at Staples> free for Quicken Basic, $29.99 for Quicken

    Deluxe, and $49.99 for Quicken Premier!



    So you can go for a more expensive version if you prefer for the

    cheaper price!



    Enjoy!

    I have a really great Excel spreadsheet that I use based off of Dave

    Ramsey's handwritten sheets. It's better than Quicken because the

    budgeting is pro-active as Dave recommends and not after the fact.

    Quicken and Money both are not very good in the budgeting

    department. If you want to try my spreadsheet just let me know. I

    will have to e-mail it to your personal account.

    JonB,

    I would really like to try your spreadsheet. It would really mean a lot to me. We're struggling to find a system.

    Thanks,
