With all of the different applications out there these days, it can be easy to get overwhelmed with which one to pick. When keeping track of your receipts, spending, and financial documents, it is a great idea to use Mint. It is an amazing money manager that does so much for you, allowing you to sit back and relax a bit. The best part is… It’s all FREE!
Set Up a Budget – Mint will help you to set up a budget, whether it be monthly or annually. It shows you where you’re spending your money, and allows you to see where you are saving money too. You can adjust it at any time, depending on what life changes get thrown your way. This option also allows you to set savings goals and shows you what you have left each month or year.
Track and Pay Bills – All you have to do is take a moment and set up all of your accounts. Mint will then keep track of your bills. You can choose automatic payment options or have Mint send you reminders when payments are due. It saves you so much time by having all of your accounts’ transactions in one place so you don’t have to log into each account website separately.
Alerts – You can set up Mint to alert you for all different things you should know. Whether your account balance is low, a bill is due, or you have gone over budget, it will alert you. It will even let you know if you are getting charged extra fees on any of your accounts. The alerts will help keep you protected and aware.
Categories – Mint wants to make things easy for you. This includes categorizing your spending habits so you can easily see where your money is going. It has it’s own categories, and you can also add your own. The amazing thing is it can even take multiple items that you purchased in one transaction and organize the specific costs into your categories (i.e. buying clothing and groceries at one store).
So as you can see, Mint is pretty awesome! It will save you time and headaches, and it really is so easy to use. You can even use it across all of your devices. What a great way to get the financial part of your life organized.
