Mint.com Personal Finance Management
Mint.com is endorsed by Money Magazine, Kiplingers, PC World and won the 2009 Webby Award for Best Financial Services Website. I've been using it for a few months and really like it. You create a Mint account, add your bank, credit card, home loan and investment accounts and then Mint really gets to work. Mint keeps track of your spending in every category, and creates budgets with wonderful charts that enable you to see exactly where it is all going which should help you to save and pay off debts. It also does a very nice job of tracking your investments with great graphic representations.
Wait a minute, you're probably thinking, what about security? Mint uses the same levels of physical and encryption security that banks do to protect the data. Mint is a “read-only” service. You can organize and analyze your finances, but you can’t move funds between — or out of — your accounts using Mint. And neither can anyone else. Your Mint account is anonymous; set up requires only an email, password and zip code. Mint doesn’t know your name, address, social security number, account numbers, or PINs. Their practices are monitored and verified by |TRUSTe, VeriSign and Hackersafe, and supported by RSA Security.
Now that April 15th is upon us, take a little time to get your financial house in order.
And did I mention that Mint is free?
