Hi, I'm mostly a lurker, but I wanted to share a great spending tracking/budgeting web sight. Its called Mint.com. You can safely put in all your information, and in the end you get a great budget tracking page. It even tells how much you should be spending on certain things... for instance it told me that I went over my food budget for the month. Great!
Anyways, I thought I would share.

I signed up for this but because one of my credit cards is through my credit union and I access the website via my account at the credit union (meaning I have to log in to my Credit union account to view the cc info) I can't pull that information for me.

I do think it can be helpful, but because of that quirk (not mint.com's fault) I opted out of using it.

That's too bad! I was exploring it more last night, and its a really great sight. I loved how I could see the % of my income spent on certain things, and see how I ranked against other users.
I'm not so much a fan of the credit cards it pushes (but they have to make money some how)... but the budget tools are really great.
We use our Amex for everything, and I love that I can now see how much is spent on things like food, eating out etc...

We have been using mint for several months now, and we like it.

There was a glitch in the system last week though, because we received about 30 emails saying we had exceeded our mobile phone budget by $0. :-D Most of the time it works well though.

I've been to mint.com, and it looks good.
