Keeping up with your finances can be tricky, especially if your pay and bills aren’t consistent every month. But you know what’s even harder to keep track of? Investments. Those tricky things have the bad habit of gaining and losing value all the time, and knowing the actual amount you have in stocks and bonds at any given time is usually a guess at best. Then, if you want to know if your investments are actually working out good for you, you’ll need a ton more research … and luck.

I didn’t need the “get rich quick” mentality; just an avenue to invest.
A few months ago I stumbled upon Betterment, a web application that lets you invest your money and makes it pretty easy to do so. It is a great service that gives you a wide variety of ways to educate you to make an informed decision about investing. But it doesn’t stop there; it is a site where you can put your money into stocks and bonds through Betterment’s portfolio.
