How To Make Mint.com Useful Part 4: Real Transactions

Welcome to part 4 of this series. To this point we have been organizing and setting up your money. This step is where the rubber hits the road. No more setting up. Now you have real transactions coming in that you need to manage and measure against the beautiful budget you set up. In this video I will show you how to tag your transactions each week so that you know if you are within your budget or not. The one thing you will need to set up is your notice preferences so that Mint.com will let you know if you are close to a budget or worse over budget. This step takes your diligence in order to manage your money. I have to admit that this is the step that gets me most of the time because I neglect it. As always let me know how I can help and if you get a chance please leave your comments or feedback below.
