I want to track my spendings in Emacs (and, perhaps, Org-Mode).
Are there any tools/techniques available for this purpose?

Actually, I only need a couple of simple features:

  • Easy tracking of one-time and recurring earnings and spendings;

  • Weekly/monthly reports (as with the Org-Mode's time tracker).

  • how do you manage it...badly :-) ...anyway aren't there better free programs to do this? – mdpc Feb 14 '13 at 19:26
  • Sure there are (GnuCash and whatnot), but at least for time tracking I've never seen anything better than the Org-Mode's clock. I hope that there might be some similar solution for personal finance management in the Emacs environment. – NikitaBaksalyar Feb 14 '13 at 20:14

I find hledger quite nice. It operates on text files in a fairly readable format. I think you could get org-capture to append new transactions to a file even though it's not an org-mode file, but I haven't tried it myself, as I mostly do CSV imports.
