I have Quicken on my PC but I have been on the look out for a web based free tool to track my expenses. I came across this timely post from lifehacker from which I discovered buxfer and clearcheckbook.
Both sites meet my expectations and are great tools for creating and tracking budgets & spending, though so far I prefer clearcheckbook because it is quite similar to quicken, while buxfer is more appropriate for group spending and shared resource tracking.
beauty of 2.0: Both sites added Kenya shillings within 12 hours of my emailing them this request and I am now able to see where most of my weekly money goes.
Another list of budgeting and financial resources.
