About a year ago my wife and I agreed we would track our spending through quicken. For the first six months I did the bookkeeping (which was hard for me). ... I thought it could be managed if I scanned in our bank statements and I redacted our account information from it. (Not sure whether there's a way to set our quicken bookkeeping files so that the passwords and accounts are protected too). ... About a decade ago (before wife and kids) I had about a five year run with quicken and it was empowering: I actually knew what I spent on certain things, understood where I could actually save money, and was able to smartly plan things.
