    Free Personal Finance Software

    Anyone have any good personal finance or accounting type freeware? I am looking at something to track my finances...revenues, expenses, assets, liabilities.

    Decent reporting option would be nice. Maybe like a 12 month cash flow, Balance sheet, and revenue/expense report.

    Let me know if you have any advice.

    Not sure if this has everything you're looking for but Mint.com is very nice.

    Re: Free Personal Finance Software

    I'm still not comfortable putting all my personal finances on one web site like Mint. I guess I'm old fashioned or something.

    microsoft accounting express is a free program you can download on the web. Not sure on the features it offers though.

    Re: Free Personal Finance Software

    I use GnuCash and like it. It's open source and has a few quirks when you're getting started but it does everything I need. Best of all, I know it will always be in a format I can use and will never be subscription based or anything like that.

    Those of us who are wary and type-A are just hosed, then. I also don't want my information like that centrally-located online.

    I tried GnuCash a while ago, but never got past the initial setup. My mom is a bookkeeper and always has the current version of Quicken, so I get a "courtesy install" . Whenever that is no longer an option I will strongly consider GnuCash.

    My impression from my previous interaction with it was that it didn't have some of the polish/bells-and-whistles of commercial programs, but the core functionality was there.
