any thoughts on

July 7th, 2010 at 05:14 pm

I'm wondering if it's useful enough to warrant the time to set everything up. I started fiddling with it today and wasn't super impressed. I don't know.

    I haven't heard much good about any of the free stuff. You get what you pay for. I would recommend buying Quicken, if you really wanted some powerful software for tracking your spending.

    It never let me set up my main bank. This is not a small town bank either! That was a problem for me. Couldn't be bothered with the rest of it if it missed my main account. I just needed something to track my credit cards, loans, investments, etc. Yodlee works great for me in that respect.

    Well, I liked it enough if you just want a way to automatically check all of your accounts in one place.

    I never did quite figure out how to use their budget feature, but I already had my own system and didn't feel like trying to figure out another.

    They also have a feature that lets you check your portfolio versus the market, but it seemed kind of buggy to me.

    Finally, they also offer deals and suggestions to help you save money, which didn't help me in my case... perhaps I am either already doing it or it didn't apply me (such as debt or mortgage consolidations since I have neither).

    But for the price of free, it's not bad. I just don't really need it, so I don't use it.

    I'm using it to track my accounts and such. I have my own spreadsheet as far as budgetting debt payoff, etc is concerned. I haven't really gotten into Mint yet to see what it could really do for me

    I attempted to start using mint, but I wasn't overly impressed with the time it took to set everything up. I use quicken and love it!

    I am way behind in tracking expenses. I have an excel spreadsheet that I try to put everything on, but have been missing cash items. I am very careful to thoroughly put all my credit card expenses on it and total everything though.

    I also try to write down all cash purchases in my check book register (putting CASH next to them).

    Sounds like Quicken is the way to go. I really just want to be able to analyze our daily expenses and credit card expenses, to see where we can be doing better. I think a copy of it came on my Mac...
