Finances: Manage Your Money, Properly

We're in tough times all across the world. Pinching pennies to be able to afford higher gas prices, higher prices on groceries, higher prices on just about everything else, and all the while still trying to save up as much money as possible for the future (family, vacations, and what-have-you). Among my numerous journeys online I have come across a website that can only be described as the savior of monetary sorrows. It's a website that actually wants to help you manage your money, to control what you are spending and where you are spending it with no strings attached.

If you haven't guessed it, Mint.com is what I am speaking of. I know there are other websites out there that can do just about the same thing, but Mint.com means well and costs nothing. It has been rated 5 stars by Money magazine and just as well in other highly regarded publications. All you have to do is sign in, go through a process of mapping out your expenses, and Mint will show you where you spend a majority of your money and where you could be saving. It also can help you to learn how much you should be spending where so as to reduce debt.

I've given Mint.com a try and I'm pretty sure it could help out others just as well. Due to its innovative take on free money management advice, I suggest you give it a try and see if it can benefit you, too!


  1. Very informative post. People want to spend money but don't use it wisely, we all want to save it but don't have some perfect way to save it. First of all people should maintain proper list of income and expenses. To know other ways refer How to manage your money

  2. Urvi,

    I also managed to find an interesting method that may be old, but very useful. The envelope method.

    Wikihow has that up on their website in full detail.
