If only we didn’t have to pay pesky bills for things like electricity, rent, and groceries, then fitting cigars into a budget would be much easier! However, enjoying excellent smokes on a tight allowance is possible — if you know how to make savvy financial decisions. Thankfully, we’re here to help with just that. Here are four apps that can help you save money PLUS four excellent cigars that represent great value for money. 


Mint is a great place to begin your budgeting journey. It’s free, easy to sync with your credit card and savings account, and it allows you to set limits to different types of spending based on your budgeting goals. 


Honey isn’t a budgeting app, per se, but it can help you save money on products you plan to purchase. That’s because Honey automatically looks for coupon codes when you shop online and can help you score discounts you might otherwise miss out on. 


Budgeting alone is hard. Budgeting with a partner can be even more challenging. Enter, Honeydue — an app designed to help significant others budget together. With Honeydue, you can sync shared and separate accounts, set up reminders for bills, and set monthly limits for yourself and for your partner. 


Want to dip your toe into making investments in the stock market without risking too much? Then Acorns may be the app for you. Acorns automatically rounds up your spare change on regular purchases and applies it to your investing account. This is an excellent tool for hands-off investors and beginners!

    Man o man the CHILLIN MOOSE is a boat load of flavor without spinning your head. I love it! Easy draw, nice even burn. Forced myself to give it 2 weeks in its own Humidor,isolated from the other smokes. Paired with a dark rum, chilled...Heaven.
