“Ever seen money grow wings as soon as it hits the bank? Enter: Mint. Upon download, I can connect my bank account and see where cash is flying out (e.g., I’m way over my latte budget). Finally, I’m well on my way to tracking goals like paying off my student loans or…going on vacation.”

Useful?
3.5 out of 5 stars
Mint helps me keep track of my budget, plan for goals, and track changes all in a clean, fresh package.

Fun?
4 out of 5 stars
It’s satisfying and easy to see when I’m on budget: Red means stop and green means go. There are lots of visuals and easy-to-understand charts, and even an advice blog to learn how to get better at managing finances.

Effective?
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
Making sure I’m managing my budget is major for my busy schedule. It means less stress, less time in front of a computer, and more time for studying and/or sleeping (depending on when exams are, of course!).
