Organize Your Finances With Free Online Servicesby Tim Manni
There’s no more important time to organize your finances than when times are tight. On his Monday show, finance expert Clark Howard discussed three free online services designed to help you organize your finances — no matter which type of spender or saver you are.
See where you’re spending: “With your credit and debit cards connected to Mint[.com], we’ll automatically download and categorize your transactions for you every night. Check out your spending trends to see where you can improve.”
Keep on top of your bills: One of Rudder.com’s many features helps you track and pay your bills on time by sending bill reminders to your inbox.
Prepare yourself before big purchases: “Thrive has a free credit score estimator that will help you figure out your credit score. Then we’ll give you advice to help you raise it so you get the best deal on your car or home.”
