Technology has made life easier in every way imaginable. Certain advancements like global positioning system apps (GPS) have become so engrained in our lives that we could not function without them on a daily basis. Now take into account all the technology that is out there that you may not use, like google calendar, budgeting apps like mint, or personal assistant devices like amazon’s echo or apple’s siri. Some of these are simple, while others may require more involvement to utilize. Even simple advancements like the text message can help us with our finances.
