Using a budget is not a one-size-fits-all sort of deal. You could use a paper & pencil system, the envelope system, an Excel spreadsheet, software like Quicken, or an online tool like Mint.com.
For those interested in giving Mint a try, I’m showing how in a series of short instructional videos. In the video below, I’ll show you one of the most important steps for getting the most from Mint – how to set up a plan for your income and expenses.
If you have any questions about using Mint, ask away in the comments section.
