Mint.com is one of our favorite and most obsess-able budgeting tools. It’s both big and small picture; look at your net worth to watch your overall progress or look at a specific investment account to see if it’s worth it’s salt, track due dates and goal progress.
Other options similar to mint.com are personalcapital.com, and manilla.com. We have an account with personalcapital but it seems redundant to our mint account so can’t say we’re in love. We also don’t use manilla but it’s well reviewed and looks like a similar program. Look here to see our descriptions of these alternative programs.
If you’re anything like Krista – all you have to do is make it a game. Saveup.com is a fun website that tracks saving habits, gives you points based on how much you’re saving and then lets you play online games with the points you earn. I’ve been playing for a while now and haven’t won anything, but the competition still makes it fun!
