GUEST BLOGGER: LIZ VANCE
Budgeting is one of the first things we talk about in the world of finance. But for most people it is not a pleasant or easy task. Luckily, we live in the day and age of technology! Technology is a great way to make budgeting easier and more enjoyable (or for some people maybe just more bearable). I have definitely heard a lot about the budgeting website, Mint, but I’d never tried it. So for today’s post I am going to let you know my first impressions after using Mint for the first time.
According to the vast knowledge of Wikipedia, “Mint.com is a free web-based personal financial management service”. But like me, you probably already knew that. However, that was about all I knew when I started researching. The main thing I got out of my research was that Mint is great for budgeting and goals but not so great at anything else. So if you need a leg up for your budget, Mint is a great option. But if you are looking for something to help you manage a wider range of your financial portfolio, you should probably look elsewhere. With that in mind, I set up my Mint account to help me and my husband get our budget rolling.
Have you ever used Mint or another budgeting program? Let me know what you think about the programs you’ve used!
