ANY = Austin’s New Year.  The city threw a pretty cool party this evening at Auditorium Shores.  There were bands (including two of my favorite Austin bands – Vallejo and the Flying Balalaika Brothers), art, decorated bicycles, food trucks, and nice views of downtown.  Thanks for the party Austin.  We will see you next year. 🙂

Mint

Since the New Year is coming, I am looking for a good way to track my budget.  I am going to experiment with the Mint App and their budgeting tips, and so far I have found that just going to their website to set things up is better.  For example, I cannot create budgeting categories in the App, but must use the website to accomplish this.  The plus side of things is the easy way to get started.  The negative side of things (so far) is the volume of advertising.  I will experiment with the App and let you know how things work out.  🙂
