“The numbers were always going in the wrong direction with Mint”

Jonathan had been using Mint and spending $300 more each month than he had. “After three months of YNAB, I got my spending under control and started saving intently. I can’t tell you how much better life is now that we have YNAB clarifying our priorities.”
