How Good is Your Check Fu?
Close your eyes! How much money do you have left in your checking account right now?
Okay, you can open your eyes again. Did you know, or did you have to guess?
Let’s just say that you did know, because you’re that good. Now, how much of that amount have you set aside for groceries? For gas? How much is left to pay the babysitter?
The picture gets a little blurry for some of us at this point.
My name is Jon, and I’m a software and music developer who’s probably off looking for a cup of coffee right now. I created Check Fu! to help me answer these questions, and to become more mindful of my own cash flow. I really enjoy using it, and I thought you might, too.
Take a quick look at what you can do with Check Fu!, all for free:
Record purchases, deposits, and transfers with quickness and ease. Reconcile that which has cleared. Smile broadly while using Check Fu’s intuitive human interface.
See The Truth.
Your bank thinks overdraft fees are delicious. Stop feeding them! See what’s really available at a glance using your Check Fu Dashboard.
Spend With Confidence.
Allocate money for groceries and rent, then see if what remains can buy you that shiny new Bo staff you’ve had your eye on. See what is left for each allocation as you spend.
Update From Anywhere.
Sign on, update, and check your real balance from anywhere. Don’t even have time to load up our nimble little site? DM your transactions to @checkfu, and we will have our trained grasshoppers enter them for you.
Don’t just guess at when you paid your friend back. Ask Check Fu! We’ll pull that right up for you.
Increase your Check Fu with each wise move you make. We’ll keep track.
Plus, in a little while (after I catch my breath), I am going to crawl behind the Check Fu! web server, and with all my might throw the giant switch that will activate the Black Belt features:
Make A Plan.
Create a spending plan of transactions, allocations, and transfers entered using the same techniques used to balance your Check Fu accounts. Predict what’s left over. Do something wonderful with it.
See What’s Coming.
Never be surprised by an oddly recurring expense again! Integrate with your favorite calendar application to track when you get paid next and when bills are coming due. See what you need to worry about in the next two weeks. Stop worrying about it.
Be the most important bill you will ever pay. Paying yourself first is easy with the Check Fu! Plan Wizard.
Keep track of who you owe in Check Fu! Bills. Use the Plan Wizard to help you snowball through your debts and reach your financial freedom.

Score More Points.
Besides the instantaneous good Karma you will receive for supporting us, you will boost your Check Fu! by up to 250 points.
