I am in love.
I never really thought I would say that about a website. Some websites (like Facebook) I have a love/hate relationship with. But I can say that I have 100% fallen in love with Mint.com.
I hadn’t heard about it until a couple of months ago and I wanted to test it out for a little while before telling you guys about it.
So… what is Mint.com? Mint.com is owned by Quicken and gives you a one stop place to see all of your banking information for FREE. You add your checking accounts, savings accounts, paypal accounts, mortgages, credit cards…. everything and they give you a complete summary of your spending. You can set up a monthly budget for different categories and Mint will give you updates on if you are meeting your budget or going over.
And the best part? (…at least for me) I didn’t have to do a THING after I created my account and entered my info!! I can log on at any time and it pulls all of our updated info so that I can see exactly where we are financially at all times. Yeah, I’m not very good at keeping up with financial information that I have to enter on a daily, or really any kind of regular basis.
They have bank-level security on their site, so it is extremely secure. I know that some of you guys will not want to use it because it means your info is somewhere online…. but really, all of our info is somewhere on some company’s server at all times anyway.
So, if you are interested in signing up, you can go to the Mint site HERE and get started. It was very easy to set up our accounts and took around 15-20 minutes.
Since using Mint, I have seen so many areas where we can cut back on our budget which is why I’m putting it under the “Survival Tip Tuesday” category.
Let me know what you guys think and if you love it as much as I do!
