I LOVE this feature, thanks for adding! It's a helpful way to take an honest look at where I'm spending money and where I can save. It's satisfying to see my monthly spending go down when I put effort toward saving. Love to look at this throughout the month to see where I'm pacing. THANKS!

To know where my money is going is helping me a lot to control better where and when to spend my money. The fact that now I am more aware of where every dollar goes, is helping me get rid of debts in more educated way. Thank you so much for this added value to my finances.

This information is very helpful to me. I appreciate the ease of using and understanding the format and content. Information is most useful to someone on fixed income because it tells me where I need to cut back and where I can spend without going into unnecessary debt. Thank you BoA.
