If you struggle with basic money management -- or even if you just want more of a visual/comprehensive analysis -- Mint.com is a wonder of a resource. I recently signed up for a free account, for clarity on where my money goes every month and how to better reel in certain areas of spending. Once you've uploaded various account information, Mint allocates categories for all of your debits and charges, showing a spending pie chart, comparing you to other local and national averages, and making suggestions about where you can save more and how to do it (suggesting other accounts that give more interest or money back).
A few readers are already onto Mint and commented on their experiences here. Anyone else have pluses or minuses to share?
