Having been a Microsoft Money user since the early nineties, the lack of a comparable package for the Mac when I switched platforms was frustrating. I've spent many years using a custom spreadsheet to try and manage the home finances. I recently came across Accountz and bought the software on the strength of the reviews elsewhere.
As ever, Accountz is as good as the information you put in and it's worth taking a couple of hours to understand the concepts it uses to track money. Once you've done that, take a little while to figure out the depth of information you want to track and budget for and then get to work on the software. Having procrastinated about building yet another spreadsheet, I had over three months of receipts to reconcile once I had Accountz up and running. It was incredibly quick to get everything entered (far quicker than MS Money) and - most importantly - the accounts reconciled with my bank and credit card accounts on first attempt.
This really is a superb product and I'd recommend it for any Mac user wanting to get on top of their home finances and budgeting.
