    I used the Savings Tracker from The Coupon Project.com last year and it was a fabulous help. I think there are some new features for this year. I have it downloaded but haven’t been shopping yet to use it.

    I have to say I used Mint for a while and I didn’t like it at all! It would constantly apply charges through my bank to one catagory “Shopping” and give me all these notices of us going over budget. The thing was we were always under budget, Mint was just doing it’s own thing.

    If you decide to sign up for mint.com, you can actually sign up through InboxDollars or Swagbucks and get PAID to do it. Pretty cool. I did this the other day and have really enjoyed mint.com.

    Also check out PearBudget. It’s a free downloadable spreadsheet that is the best ready-made budget I’ve ever found!

    Crystal,

    Have you been able to track rollover funds in Quicken? For example, if the heat bill is $10 under budget one month and $5 over budget the next month I still am $5 under for the two consecutive months.

    I’m also looking for a system that helps me keep track of separate funds I’m saving in one account. For example, I budget my different insurances each month so I have enough set aside when they’re due. Do you know of something that will keep track of balances within an account?

    Thanks in advance!
