PocketGuard makes you aware of your spending habits.

PocketGuard also makes it very clear what money is available to spend after you’ve paid your bills and set aside money for savings. It also allows you to set spending limits (for the expense categories that you choose) and the app will alert you when you’re going over budget. Lastly, PocketGuard automatically builds a personalized budget for you, based on your bills, income, and goals.

Claritymoney helps you track your spending and organize your expenses by breaking down your spending by category. Also, if there are subscriptions that you’re not using, Claritymoney can help you cancel them.
