I really love the ability to forecast out to plan. We just had a baby and
I'm planning to stay home for a while so Income Companion is really helpful
in figuring out how long I can do that or exactly how much income I will
eventually need to maintain our current lifestyle. Again, compared to what
I'm used to in terms of dwelling in the past of what was spent, I like the
future focus and pre-planning aspect of this!
