    This is an interesting find! I am definitely in favor of tools that help people keep tracking of their money. I just save my receipts and enter them into Microsoft Money when I get home.

    This is great!! I need something like this and I did not know that twitter does this. I often times want to keep track of what I spend and never have a pen, this will work great. BTW, just followed you on Twitter.
