hey everyone...

i've entered the real world and need to straighten out bills and such..

i'm looking for a free personal finance program. i dont need it to connect to banks or read online statements (i hope I can keep tabs myself), but I would like something like a calender (or even better...reminders) and such. graphs, budgeting, etc. would be great as well (but i understand to be free, i will have to make some sacrifices).

Anyone know of any?

I use Mini$ which is free. It's a checkbook registry-style program and it allows you to categorize your finances and it easily generates reports. It imports/exports popular formats like CSV and Quicken, which is very handy since many banks allow you to export data in these common formats. It will even identify possible duplicates during the import. And it allows you to set reminders for credit card payments and such. I find it easy to use as well. Try it and see what you think. For me, it's just what I need.
