The other day, a friend of mine mentioned that she uses the free money-management tools at Mint.com. Since I don’t use any type of software to manage my finances — I have my own Nicole-esque system — I figured I’d check it out.
Mint.com bills itself as “free personal finance software” and seems to be highly regarded by PC Magazine, PC World and the Wall Street Journal.
While I think anyone would be slightly reluctant to surrender almost all of their financial information to one website, Mint.com does offer a ton of budgeting tools and even “24/7 financial protection,” where you’re notified if anything seems amiss with your accounts. It sounds like it’s pretty darned secure.
I definitely see this as being great online personal budgeting software for people who need to track where their money goes.
Does anyone else use Mint.com or another similar money-management site?
