Last night I heard about mint.com. It allows you enter your bank information, credit card info, loans, retirement, etc boils all that data together to give you a good picture of what you’re spending on what and gives you neat graphs and such. It is really helpful knowing that I have X amount spent in my credit card and spent X last month over the course of the month. Pretty cool service and I think its something I’ll actually be using from now on.
Oh, and for those scared about security. The service is “read-only” which means that even if someone were to gain access to your mint account they wouldnt be able to change anything, but just to be safe I came up with a ridiculous password. Plus the site has a PC Magazine Editor’s Choice award, so that gives it some cred as well.
