Mint Personal Financial Tool

Many of you have probably never heard of, this simple to use software program is a great web based financial tool that is totally free to the user and it only takes minuets to add your personal accounts to the program.
This program is mostly about helping you budget and track your expenses. Every time you use one of your accounts the software program will sync your transactions and then send them to a category that you and the system setup. This will help you find out where your money is going from week to week, it is an eye opener to see what your spending habits are. This will assist you with your budgets and make sure your spending habits are managed.

Since this web based program is free one thing that you cannot control on the site is the advertising. Mint does target advertising, so some of the ads on the site may be beneficial to you.
A lot of people have asked me about the security of the site especially today with all the online hacking that is taking place. uses a bank-grade security software. According to the NY Times article all passwords and usernames are protected with the same level of security as a financial institution.
One of the newest features of has recently rolled out is a free credit score tracking option. With just a click of the mouse you can view your credit score, payment history, age of your credit accounts, and your spending habits.
I truly believe this to be another great free tool for people needing help with their credit and or budgeting.
