For my second month of my Happiness Project I am going to focus on money. I will take a close look at my finances and figure out where I can make some better decisions on spending. I am also going to make a plan on how to get myself out of debt and start a savings plan.
Unlike the picture above, I do not want money to control my life. I'd rather get a plan in place that runs smoothly on its own so I can live my life but still spend wisely.
In order to start making financial plans, I need to know where I stand. In order to get a good picture of my money situation, I am going to use Mint.com to track my spending. Their tagline is "It's easy to understand what's going on with your money." They pull all your financial accounts into one place and let you use that data to create budgets and track your goals.
They have a great mobile app that you can put on your phone so your financial information is always at your fingertips.
Now it's time for me to get tracking!
