So one of my New Years' resolutions is to better track and budget my spending. For that purpose, I'm playing with Mint.com, a free web service that lets you import your credit card and loan accounts and track what you spend. It's not quite as great as, say, Quicken; on the other hand, it's free, and works on a Mac.
I offer this space for two open threads:
1) What steps so far have you taken to act on your New Years Resolutions?
2) Any free or low-cost tools you recommend for weight loss, financial management, and so forth?
