Mint.com is a personal finance website that organizes and categorizes your spending habits. The site functions like a personal budget account, though all you have to do is input your bank account information and the site does the rest. Mint.com automatically categorizes your expenses based on where your bank statements say you spent money. The site breaks your spending down into categories such as groceries and restaurants, or you can add your own specific categories to keep track of where your money is going.
Aside from categorizing your spending, you can also keep track of credit card payments and bills. Mint.com alerts you of when your bills are due, and can also help allocate your income based on how much is due. On the left-hand side of the site, all your accounts are shown. You can add in loans, investments or property that you may have to create a comprehensive budget calculation. Mint.com automatically generates a trend report about your spending habits displayed as a graph, and this can be emailed to you weekly as well.
