Website Review:

If you're looking for a way to track your expenses and stick to a budget, look no further than

I've been using the site for nearly a year and it just continues to get better. The premise is that you provide the login info for your bank accounts, mortgages, loans, credit cards, investment accounts and any other finances you'd like to track. While this may sound scary, it's extremely secure. prides itself on its safety and the security of information is essentially the basis of their entire site.

Each time you log into, it accesses your accounts to ensure you have the most accurate view of your finances. You can see where your money goes each month by tagging expenses, such as groceries, rent, cell phone, home improvements, etc. Best of all, you can customize your own expense categories. can provide you with trends -- what you spend where each month. You can also create a budget for each category, and will alert you if you go over that budget. recently upgraded its site so you can now include the estimated value of your home and vehicles, providing an even more comprehensive view of your finances.

I highly recommend if you're looking for a way to monitor your saving and spending. I almost forgot the most important part -- is free! How does it offer all of these great features for free? Based upon your spending and saving habits, will recommend credit card companies, banks and other companies that can offer you a better rate than you're currently getting. It's a win-win !

Check out today and let me know what you think.

  1. Yes! I totally love Mint, and have been suggesting it to everyone... I even got my boss using it. I also think there's potential for it to be green, since you don't need all the paper bills/statements: you can just see it all online.

  2. Glad you enjoy, too! You're right, it could definitely be considered green. Thanks for checking out my blog!
