Mint by Intuit has been around since 2006 and is one of the most popular personal finance solutions on the internet.
Mint has many good features, but they weigh down on the performance and usability of their site. If you were to start on Mint today, you would be inundated with advertisements and calls to action. How can you start getting a handle on your money when you are overwhelmed from the start?

I'm really enjoying everything about Lunch Money and am happy to say I have been able to delete my Mint account to get away from them selling financial data to marketers.
I love Lunch Money! It makes managing my money super easy while still being very approachable as a tool. I switched from Mint and have never looked back!
