The Simpler, Smarter Online Budgeting System that helps you Manage your Spending in a Whole New Way – Anytime, Anywhere!
Following the success of their PC version of Mvelopes Personal 1.0, In2M Corporation announced May 19, 2004 the release of Mvelopes Personal 2.0 Web Edition. This version is accessed completely online from any Internet connection. Users now have immediate, real-time access to their spending plan information – at home, work, or anywhere they are connected – to help them stay on track with their financial goals.
Financial freedom doesn’t come from having a large income; instead it comes from managing the money that you earn.
The key to reaching financial freedom is using an effective spending management system.
In2M executive Steven B. Smith advocates a back-to-basics approach based on the age-old “envelope” budgeting method to tackle spending management – the key to financial fitness. Anyone, regardless of household income, can use the principles of an envelope budgeting system to achieve financial fitness and put him or her self on track toward financial freedom. Managing money is no easy process in today’s “cashless” society, however, if used effectively today’s technology can improve spending management by increasing awareness of money earned, spent, and saved on a monthly, weekly and even a daily basis.
“The ‘envelope’ concept was proven years ago when people divided cash among paper envelopes dedicated to a house payment, groceries, utilities, vacation and so on,” he explains. “When people needed money, they took cash from the appropriate envelope. For example, when the grocery envelope was empty they had to take money from other envelopes or not buy groceries. They were constantly aware of how much money was left in each spending envelope, and how long it had to last. Knowing this, they were able to make informed spending decisions.”
In2M created Mvelopes Personal using these same time-proven envelope budgeting principles. Mvelopes Personal is an online home budgeting system that helps members look to the future and plan their spending accordingly. With Mvelopes they can easily create a household budget, track all their spending, and always know exactly how much they have left to spend in every category. Mvelopes gives members access to all their financial information at anytime, from anywhere.
This revolutionary system uses the traditional envelopes budgeting method, partnered with today’s technology, to help members manage their spending, while living within their income – and most of it’s done automatically!
