So I have a MAC so I can benefit from the enhanced security aspect of keeping my business private. I purchased Quicken to learn that it isn’t so easy to simply convert my Quicken Windows files to Quicken Mac files. I had to start from scratch. After hours of setup I learned that Quicken for MAC and TRowe Price don’t get along, so I can’t add my investment accounts. WTF!
Anyway that was many months ago and since then I found that MINT was the answer until recently. I had everything running like a clock when all of a sudden a few days ago it stopped updating my Credit Union Accounts. You know, like checking and savings. Unable to find out an answer from MINT I turned to the Google. Many people are having the same issues and it seems that the problem is the “Secret Answer”. When signing into my bank occasionally I am asked to answer one of the secret questions I selected when I opened the accounts. With MINT there is no option to answer this question. Ahhh!
I ended up spending most of the morning setting up a program called Banktivity 5, which is a MAC banking program that works pretty solid. It isn’t as attractive to the eyes as other financial programs but it gets the job done. I know that having all of your finances in one place on a computer program is more of a privilege than a right, but I have grown accustomed to the simplicity.
On a more pleasurable note I am spending a great deal of time outdoors working on the backyard. I made a trip to pick up more garden soil to add to the raised bed gardens, cut the grass for the first time this season and did some general yard clean up. I will continue this venture today some weeding and trimming. This is the type of workout I love rather than lifting weights or walking on a treadmill. We have no access to our back yard so carrying 12 large bags of garden soil through the house was no easy task.
