If you have a propensity to overspend on your reno then you need this one because you can manually track and budget your spending during the project. Creating a budget and tracking your spending can save you hundreds of dollars. Do it all with this App. It features easy input expense tracker with graphs and percentages to show you how much money you have left to spend. You can create custom categories and either enter a quick cost or detailed description including dates and pictures of receipts. The thing I love is that you can build a personalized budget with custom categories and spending limits. It is called Renovation Budget Tracker and is available in the App store for $4.50.
If you are like me and love spreadsheets then check out Tom’s Planner . It is great for setting up a project program. It is brilliant if you have a team and need to get everyone involved in project planning. It gives more accountability across the board and fewer “what’s the status on this?” emails and calls from your team. You’ll spot bottlenecks before you get any angry emails, you can reallocate resources before anyone is on to you, and hit even more deadlines.
