I use mint.com, for all the good it does. It is tough remembering what categories I used for certain things, especially with all the choices mint gives you. There are so many ways of categorizing, it is often not clear which is best, and the same sort of thing gets categorized one way one month and another way another month. Maybe I will repair this some day. When I look at my expenditures for the month or year, I get little insight into what's going on. Maybe there is some filtering feature I missed.

Also, it does not track cash purchases easily or well. That's not all bad, because it helps convince my wife to give way one her 'cash-based' system and use credit cards that can be tracked automatically. Still, when 10% of your money isn't tracked, it can be a problem.

And, you have to wonder how safe and secure your data and passwords are.

Some of mint's cost saving ideas are useful.

The best I can say for it is that it is very convenient.
