Mint – Financially fresh

In the fifth post of this six-part series (parts 1, 2, 3, 4) I’m covering a tool that has been in the forefront of online personal finance for quite a while.  In fact, Mint was the first personal finance website that I ever heard of, though I was unable to use it then because my bank was not supported at the time.  I do know many people that use Mint and are very happy with it.  Let’s take a look at what Mint has to offer (as well as were it falls short).

Buxfer – My old friend

First off, my apologies for the long delay in the next installment of this series.  I have a couple of excuses, but rather than waste your time with them I will instead give you a link to a guest post that I wrote for  I talked about a couple of tools that I have already covered with this series, but I also talked about another very new tool.  I suggest giving the article a read.  Also, as always, here are some links to early installments of this series: part 1, part 2, part3.  So let’s jump into part 4 of this 6 part series.

The best online personal finance tool

When it comes to keeping up with where you spend your money, there are a whole lot of options out there.  Some of the old school among us still use the register in our checkbooks.  That’s right, kids, some people still carry checkbooks (and I remember what a register is).  All kidding aside, there has never been an easier time to be financially responsible than in the 21st century.  The main reason for this is a long list of personal finance websites that make it super easy to keep up with exactly where your money is going.  Maybe the hardest part these days is just deciding which website to use!
