Ha, I didn't know it was called envelope budgeting, thanks for that.

We use a single account/budget so we dodged a bullet there. 😆

As far as credit cards are concerned, my experience is that it…

I use YNAB.
I love the fact that it matches my approach to personal finance, and it removed the pain to make this approach work (I used Excel before that).
The only (manageable) issue I have is…

For now, the Airtable iOS app. If you have a Barcode field in your table, the search input automatically supports searching by scanning.
But adding/removing items still a bit slow to my taste because…

We write focus documents, but it's over 6 weeks instead of a month (duration borrowed from Shape Up).
It's ingrained in the async tool we built, and that replaces Slack for us (and helps cut through…

I built two apps with Airtable + some ruby:
* one for the finances of our company of 2: import transactions from the bank, import, parse and sort invoices from Dropbox

But, you'll have to jump through hoops to get it: translate the site, pay international shipping costs (but they do ship…

I've been working from home since 2009, and I'm a bit of a contrarian:
* I sit on a wooden chair, all day long: I've had various sorts of higher-end chairs, all caused me back problems. After I threw…

We built an internal tool for our own communication and after talking with some of our customers, we decided to invite some of them in January.
