I’ve been looking for a solution for keeping track of when my bills are due. I’ve used Quicken and Excel, but those are complex systems, and I have to remember to go check and update them. I want something to simply remind me of when bills are coming due. For a long time I’ve kept a simple notebook on my desk, writing down due dates and amounts by hand, then glancing over it every week or so.
This morning I found the perfect solution. If you’re a Mac user, fire up the Mac App Store and download Chronicle Mini for free. This is a super lightweight app that sits in the menu bar and reminds you of when your bills are due. Add your bills and their due dates and you’ll never miss one again. It’s a simple as that.
Chronicle Mini is designed to work with the full version of Chronicle, but the full version is not necessary to use the Mini app. I don’t use the full version and don’t really intend to. The Mini app is simple and does exactly what I need it to. Best of all, it’s free.
