I need a recommendation for a budgeting tool that makes it easy to get your transactions into it.

I currently have a Numbers spreadsheet with recurring income and expenses. But there are some estimations here and it’s not giving me a clear enough picture.

I’m totally fine with paying for services. I do it all the time. I probably overdo it. BUT…

I’m a little miffed at IFTTT. I was using a free integration for the past year. Then it suddenly quit working. Turns out they decided to charge for it now.

Luckily it’s easily replaceable by a cron job.

What do you call an in-joke that’s more of a reference than a joke? For example, this sentence:

No one outside the group understood why the cat was named Foobar because his name was a [word that means inside reference].

Or maybe “inside reference” is right. I don’t know.
