I love it when people share their favorite free tools with me. Shanna, who provided the recommendation, started using Mint.com for her personal expense tracking. The system takes you a few minutes to set up, and then all of your expenses and income are aggregated to the same place.
Mint makes its money by providing recommendations that could save you money… a suggestion of a credit card that has a lower interest rate, a recommendation of a high-interest bearing savings account. If you take them up on their offer, Mint makes money. If not, you can still use their proven budgeting system for free.
Last year it won awards from Kiplinger.com Time and Money magazines, PCWorld, lifehacker… yeah. Everybody loves it. It’s secure, easy to use and just makes sense.
And the website looks cool, too.
