{Digitwirl}– Show me the money!

Keeping track your life is challenging enough, so who can remember when your next credit card payment is due or that your checking account is on life support? But there is a simple way of keeping track of all your finances, by storing them in one secure place–

With a few simple clicks you can upload your bank account balances, bills, mortgage statements and student loans and Mint will organize them in one place so that you always know exactly what’s going on with your finances. No more searching piles. No more late fees.

And, Mint gives you an up-to-the-minute view of all your transactions, analyzes your spending habits and lets you set up a budget. It might just surprise you to see where your cash is going and how you can save money!

With the Mint app (available for both iPhones and Androids) a quick peek at your bottom line will help you decide whether to purchase, or pass on, that little “Me gift” you’ve been eying.

By making it easy for you to track your spending and pay your bills, you can save more, and avoid those dreaded late fees. And that leads to MUCH less stress in the back of your {already-super-busy-mommy} mind! Less stress = More fun!

But… I have a confession. I have an account at, and never did anything more than sign up. I never took the time to set it up or link my accounts because I thought it would be complicated.

No, keeping track of piles of bills and writing checks is complicated! I am SOOOO glad to have watched this video and realized how easy it is to set up, and how simple it will be to keep everything organized. Because although I am the queen of home organization, even I get overwhelmed sometimes!! You can imagine what my mailbox is like each day {you’ve seen the pictures!} so it’s easy for bills to get lost.

And I especially like that NO MONEY can be moved around, making it safe as can be. Love that.

I know that the momma’s that follow my blog are all about saving money, right? Of course! We clip coupons, search for deals and offers, and do what we can to give our family the BEST possible life, at the LEAST expense!

But, so many of us forget to manage those savings, or save for the future as well as we should. So I feel totally confident recommending this awesome service to you, and I hope it helps many of you reach your financial goals :)
