What is money management?

After you’ve identified the financial goals you want to achieve, it’s time to assess how you spend your money. See, money management is a blanket term for how you budget, save, invest, and spend your money. When you have an understanding of where your money is going, you’re one step closer to having maximum control over your finances — which is key in getting you from point A to B.

What’s the best way to budget your money?

There are plenty of budgeting apps on the market that connect with your bank account and credit cards — Mint, Personal Capital, You Need a Budget (YNAB), and Zeta — to name a few. Allowing these apps to automatically download and categorize your transactions is an easy way to gain insights into your spending while comparing them with your budget.

These money management tools often come at an affordable price, are easy to use, and have features that can be adopted to meet your budgeting style. Connectivity issues between these money management tools and other bank accounts isn’t uncommon, however, and can lead to inaccurate, out-of-date account insights.

When your financial goals are out of sight, it’s much easier for them to be out of mind, which is why we think bank in-app money management tools are the way to go. Our solution to this is the nbkc Everything Account.

All the tools. All in one place.

We may be a little biased in our opinions of the nbkc Everything Account, so we pulled a few testimonials from customers to back it up.

I like the UI on the app. Especially the ease of opening a savings account especially for different savings goals.
I have banked with other banks and unfortunately their main goal seemed to make money from me by charging fees for all sorts of things. NBKC seems to try to help me save money.
NBKC Bank has been wonderful in offering an all-in-one account with an interest rate that is 3x better than my credit union checking account's interest rate.
