Today I wanted to share an awesome budgeting tool I use and recommend to my friends and clients. It is a secure web based application that helps you track your account balances and transactions and lets you know where you are spending your money. You can set budget limits for each type of spending (resturant, leisure, groceries, gas etc.) and Mint will warn you when you reach or get close to reaching them. You can set up personal budgets or goals to help you save for that new car, pay off that Mastercard bill or even save for a down payment on a new home.
This app is FREE, is incredibly easy to use and really helps you get a grasp on your finances. There is also a smartphone app you can install on your iPhone, iPad or Android phone giving you the ability to manage this all on the go. I would recommend it highly to anyone looking to save money, pay down debt, track finances and accomplish other financial goals. It’s one of my favorite apps out there and I hope you take some time to check it out and see how it can help you too!
Please leave me a comment below if you’ve used this app before or have any questions.
Here’s a short video explaining the application and just a few of its great features!
