I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned it here at the Experiment but one of the most fantastic pieces of software I use regularly is Mint. Mint tracks your finances, spending and investments and it does it extremely well, far better than Money or Quicken. There is very little for you to do other than verify the categories. On top of that, it’s free. I’m a little more OCD when it comes to money than most people but still, I think almost anyone would benefit from having a comprehensive view into their finances without having to jump through all the hoops that other packages force you through.
If you’ve always wanted to track your finances but didn’t want it to require 3 hours a week to keep up with, you should check out Mint.
