I used mint for a while, but recently switched over to Green Sherpa ( I loved that mint was free, but I hated dealing with all of those annoying ads. And it wasn't as customizable as I liked. Since I receive my paycheck in the middle of the month, it made it more complicated to make a budget. Green Sherpa isn't free like mint, but it's more customizable, has zero ads, and has added features like cash flow projection tools which helps you plan for future and unexpected expenses. They offer a 30-day trial, and after that its 6 bucks a month (I just cut out Starbucks twice a month and it pays for itself!)

Mint has been a godsend for me and my husband this year to get our finances back on track. Now I just wish they would release an Android app for our Droid phones...
