Keep a Handle on Overspending!!

Tell me, do you have a plan for your Christmas budget?  Will you be able to keep your spending under control this Christmas season?

It is very easy to go over budget at Christmas, right?!  {Of course, taking advantage of our big list of gift ideas will help}.  I want to take a moment to tell you about the tool I use to keep my spending in check.

Best of all… it’s a FREE TOOL!

Have you heard of mint.com??  They have millions of users already (I’m one of them).  It is a online money management software.

ONLINE means you have access to it… when ever you want, WHERE ever you want!

In fact, there is a Mint.com app for iPhones and Android! Anytime I’m on my phone I can see my current bank balance and most recent transactions!


Mint.com - Take Control of Your Money

Don’t have a smart phone?  No worries!

After you set your budget up, and link your banking accounts, it pretty much does the rest!

  1. It will securely communicate with your bank
  2. Any time a transaction comes through, it will update your account on mint.com.
  3. You can set it up to receive notices via email or text when you are going over budget!
  4. It will even send you a weekly recap of your spending!

Mint.com is an AWESOME tool – and it is FREE!

Signing up and linking up your bank accounts will take less than 15 minutes.  I am so glad I did (and I’m going to get my husband going on this too)!
