Recommend a personal finance software
Late to the party on this one, but better late than never. I'm looking for suggestions on personal finance / budgeting software to track family spending habits. Those of you who use this type of thing, which one of the existing (Mint, Quicken, etc.) modules works for you? Or am I better off creating one via Excel spreadsheets (and does anyone have a template they use)?

Mint or YNAB

re: Recommend a personal finance software
I use excel and I have created my own spreadsheet to track all of my income/expenses. The layout occasionally changes if I want to introduce a new category, or manage it better for data analysis. It doesn't have all the fancy tools packed in with it, but I do have full control over the data and how I want to analyze it. Very time consuming due to lack of automation, although I don't have an issue with it. As long as I have receipts or record how much cash spendings I have incurred in a day or so on my phone/notepad, I have no problem keeping my spreadsheet very accurate.

Have you used an App called SigFig? A buddy of mine mentioned it the other day, says it's awesome.

I am a fan of Quicken. I like to be able to pull reports and use the tools that are available.

It depends a lot on what you want to do with it. If you're looking for budget software many people swear by YNAB. Personally I use Quicken for the easy transaction downloading.

As far as just a transaction aggregator Mint is awesome. You could always then export data from there to get more flexible with it.

To all:

With YNAB, would I manually have to input every purchase I make?

I am interested in this as well. What is the basis?
