Hey – Welcome back or for the first time. Glad you stopped by. I’m instituting a segment on this blog that will highlight “Tips and Tricks for Living Your Best Life with Multiple Sclerosis” – hence, the title! In this segment, I’ll let you know of any cool gadgets, websites, programs, music, books, videos – whatever – that somehow help in our quest for making our MS’y lives better.
Today, I’m going to give you a tip that I’m instituting right now. It’s called Mint.com and it’s a FREE budgeting website and App. I’ll let you know how it goes for me, but I’ve read a bit about it and it looks like it could really help alot. You can input all of your financial information into it – like your mortgage payment, insurance info., utility bills, savings account (ok, who’s got one of these??), car payment, credit card account, investments – and Mint tracks it all and gives you a visual reference – like a pie chart – to see where your money is. Oh, and, this is cool, it will categorize your expenses and create a budget for you based on your history. You can make changes anytime. The point is – it’s quick, easy, free and very secure. Here’s a link so you can check out a video about it: https://www.mint.com/how-it-works.
I’m looking forward to tracking everything -IN ONE PLACE – so I have one username and password to look at all of my accounts – and a budget would be a good thing too! That’s right, I’m admitting it. I don’t have one – yet. This little tool is going to help me streamline. And isn’t that what it’s all about? Finding tips and tricks to live your best life – IN SPITE OF MS??
Sure would love to hear any tips and tricks you have. Drop me a line at Kathy@FUMSnow.com or leave a comment right here on the blog. I’ll be testing other ideas and bringing them to you right here. So – come back, check in, comment, participate in the community, learn something, share something. We’re in this together. Let’s make it the smoothest ride we can.
Thanks for your seemingly limitless support —
