Personal Capital

Personal Capital is a financial tracking tool I have been using since 2015. It lets you see all your investments, income, and expenses all in one place online. It even offers investment advice and recommendations. It’s easy to set up, easy to use, and best of all it’s free. Check out my guide to Personal Capital here.

M1 Finance

M1 Finance is a hybrid between an online broker and an investment manager that allows for robo-directed investing and self-managed investing alike. While I prefer to invest the majority of my money in passive index funds, I use M1 Finance to invest some “play money” into a basket of individual stocks.

The best part about M1 Finance is that they have no minimum investment requirement, they charge zero dollars in management fees, and they allow investment in fractional shares. Read my review of M1 Finance or get started for free here.


I love the idea of investing small sums of money on a regular basis, but it can be a pain to manually do so each week or month. Fortunately, I’m able to use Acorns, a free financial app that took literally five minutes to set up and automatically invests my spare change for me in a diversified portfolio.
