Earlier this month, the Wall Street Journal published a special insert called "The Best Online Tools for Personal Finance." I have shared a few tools on this blog in the past, but wanted to make sure I pass along a few more gems from the article for your financial management arsenal. (The Best of) WSJ's Best Online Tools for Personal Finance:
- Mint.com - I'm a broken record on this. Read why I'm such a fan girl here, here or here.
- Wesabe.com and Geezo.com - Financial tracking with a social networking component
- Simplifi.net and PlanwithVoyant.com - Tools to help you create a financial plan
- CakeFinancial.com - helps track investments and portfolios
- SocialPicks.com and Covestor.com - track investments and compare portfolio's performance to others
- CreditKarma.com (another favorite of mine) - free credit score and advice for how to improve
- ZimpleMoney.com - Social finance community for loans; tracks and monitors social financial agreements (like loans between family members)
A personal favorite not listed in the article: Kiva.org - Kiva allows you to finance micro-loans for entrepreneurs around the globe (for as low as $25). When your loan is repaid, you can either get the money back or reinvest with someone else. A brilliant system if you ask me. (See my previous post: A Lesson in Micro-Credit and Loans that Change Lives)
Am I (and by proxy, the Wall Street Journal) missing any good online money management tools? Let me know!
