Manilla – Free Online Financial Organization


Manilla Online Financial Software

I’ve been hearing a lot about lately & had to check it out for myself. As you’ve probably noticed, I’m an organizational junkie. I am far from organized (definitely not Born Organized) and am always looking for new ways to keep track of things. Right now, I use my Fly Calendar to keep track of everything but it only works when I remember to write down the bills on their. Occasionally, I don’t receive a bill in the mail or my email eats them.  Plus, I’m the mistress of stupid financial mistakes; like paying my Alliant (light & gas) bill twice and forgetting to pay my cell phone one month. You know I had to magically come up with that from somewhere, because there is NO WAY I can go even 2 hours without my phone (yes, I really do sleep with it). So, I immediately signed up for Manilla for a couple reasons. The biggest: its FREE!

What is Manilla?

Manilla is wonderful because it imports all of your accounts in one location. When you first set it up, you select the accounts you want to import & enter your login info for them. It may ask for more information on the next screen (my student loans required my DOB & account number), but it is the same information you provide when you log into that account directly. I was able to set it up with Alliant Energy, Mediacom, US Cellular, Qwest, Sallie Mae, Bank of America, Paypal, and Netflix. I noticed some cities have their water bills accessible, but I wasn’t that lucky.

After it is all set up, you can receive custom notifications (email or SMS) 7, 3, or 1 day before your bill is due, when it is overdue, and when there is a problem with your account. It stores any account documents you receive. It even warns you not to open the document when others may have access to the temporary files for your privacy & displays them in your browser.

Why should you sign up for Manilla?

Most people have more than 20 different household accounts, including three to four credit cards, several travel and hotel rewards accounts, multiple magazine and newspaper subscriptions, plus cable, phone, and other assorted utility bills. In order to stay on top of all this, people have to manage daily incoming paper mail, an array of online usernames and passwords, and websites in order to access important account information and take action. Manilla seamlessly retrieves all your account information – current balances, previous payments, upcoming bills due – and stores it for you in one secure place. Most importantly, you need only one password to view, manage and organize it all. And, did I mention, its FREE!
