"and how does ur method work?"

I enter everything into Quicken. It really is eye-opening to see WHERE all you money goes.
Come tax time, I print out reports and all my documentation ready in no time.

Just was wondering the same thing for myself. I'd like my budgeting to be a little easier to figure out and was wondering about mint.com as well as Quicken. What is your reason for not wanting to use mint? I have tried to connect everything online through my bank, but it hasn't worked out how I hoped.

DOS is what we used before Windows was invented.

I do not import anything.

I am trying to find an easy to use, not MINT software to budget. I am using the trial verion of "You need a budget" and its not AS great as they made it out to be.
