Managing your finances in 2012: Personal Assistants

I don’t know about you, but one of my new year’s resolutions for 2012 is to manage my finances better, set-up an budget, and hold my wife to it (of course me too). With a 2 year old and a baby on the way, making sure they are provided for is extremely important to me. But, if you are anything like me, I don’t have the time to write down everything I buy, categorize it, and budget it. So I have turned to an online personal finance assistant.

Online personal finance assistants allow you to sync your credit card accounts, bank accounts, investment accounts, auto accounts, etc. and manage them in one location. These services will breakdown what you are spending your money on and help you prioritize and keep up with a budget for each category. There are many good personal finance assistants out there online, and most of them have apps in the Android Market or in the Apple Store.

If you are looking for help, here are my top 5 Personal Finance Assistants.

1. Mint.com

Mint.com was one of the first personal finance assistants and the most popular. Which is the reason why it was purchased by Intuit in 2009. Mint.com allows you to sync with the major financial institutions, but not if you have a GAP card.
