Mint is a fantastic personal financial planning website that is totally free. Think Quicken but easier to use and much prettier! you can enter all of your accounts (checking, savings, credit cards, student loans, mortgage, car, etc) in about 5 minutes if you have all your online access to them. It then continuously monitors your trends in spending, you can compare your spending to others in a geographical region, and it even sends you alerts if a bill is coming due or if your funds are low.

This site is awesome. It's really helping me get a grasp on what I spend, and where, and allows me to track all my accounts in 1 place.

You can change your settings for email notifications if it gets too much!

Does it get better at categorizing transactions as you correct it? It put "Moe's Southwest Grill" as Travel....

Yes, once you correct it, there is a checkbox that will make the category you chose the default for that particular item.

I found it, thanks! I also started using tags to figure out how much DH and I are spending on lunches out during the work week.
