Budget Saver Tip #1: Online Budgeting Help

While I am thoroughly and completely frugal by nature, I am not always the best at knowing how much of any particular budget I have used for the month and how much I have left. That's why I was so excited when I discovered Mint.com. It is a free, online program that allows you to budget anything you want for whatever amount you choose, plan for regular payments and those that happen only a couple times a year, see how your expenses compare to those of the average American from month to month, see where you're spending the most money and get ideas of how to reduce expenditures, etc, etc. If you use a bank account, you can use Mint.com and it will automatically show you what you've spent, so there's very little to plug in manually. And when you get close to your budgeted amount--or go over--you'll receive an email about it, so you're always in the know. It's great! Too bad Mint.com won't pay to have me advertise for them... :)
