Tutorial


PROBLEM:

If you:

  • have shopping lists written on slips of paper
  • tend to impulse buy items
  • fall behind in holiday, necessity, and school shopping
  • overspend and fall into debt
  • forget to teach children home economics

This app may be beneficial to addressing these problems and more, especially in today's economic climate.

SOLUTION:

We wanted to help parents and teachers with planning purchases as well as budgeting for any custom category such as holiday, birthdays, home, school, etc...

NOTE: The solution is based upon the same user flow as iPlanLessons to help ease usability
