I am really big on tracking spending and budgeting, it just helps our family stay on track!

Well, I signed up back in May with Mint.com, which is a FREE service that helps you create a budget, track your spending, save money, and make your bank account much easier to manage. It has lightened my load a bit, but I can’t seem to get away from my spreadsheet habit when it comes to managing our money! I have to be honest, I have not had the time available to use it to the fullest!  I am resolving this year to go for it full force to make my life a little easier and less cluttered! 
.
Over 1 Million people already use Mint.com
(that’s me … I am 1 in a million) and it’s been featured on nearly every morning show, in newspapers, and magazines. They download and categorize your balances and transactions automatically, making it so stinkin’ easy to see graphs of your income, spending, balances and so forth.

I’ve been using Mint for a year and a half now and I absolutely love it. I’m kind of obsessed with updating it constantly.

I love Mint. I have been using it for about 6 months. I love to see where the money goes and how to adjust my budget to make it work better for my family. Great Post Carie! Thanks!

My husband looked into this the last time you mentioned it, but with 3 little rugrats (and both working a lot of hours), I knew we probably would have no time to keep up with it. Now that we have a goal to reach (to finish our basement), I am going to look into this again tonight and hopefully get back on track with my family’s budgeting!

I switched over to mint.com when quicken online closed this past year. I have a big problem with mint.com because they do not forecast into the future. Mint.com helps me see what money I have and what I owe, but that is all past or as present as they can get. There is nothing to forecast what my lowest point in the coming month/months will be. Quicken was good at that, but mint.com has NOTHING for that.
