Where does the name “PearBudget” come from?

When we first started building PearBudget, we knew one thing: We wanted something simpler than everything else out there. So we challenged every assumption about what was necessary for a budget to work, and we came up with a surprisingly short list of crucial elements.

We began building this ideal budgeting tool, and kept referring to it as “the pared-down budget.” Over time, we even pared down that name, and ended up with the cute moniker “PearBudget.”
