What Mint and Tiller
have in common:
“The biggest reason for quitting Mint.com? My financial circumstances didn’t fit. As a freelancer, my monthly earnings fluctuate from month-to-month and trying to stick to a set-in-stone budget just isn’t doable. I needed a more flexible tool to fit with my family’s finances.”
Why You’ll Love Tiller
Track your financial life all in one place, create unlimited reports, and customize everything, all with strict privacy and no ads.
No Annoying Ads
Mint is a free service that earns revenue from monetizing user data and selling ads. But Tiller Money is solely supported by user subscriptions, and never shows ads or sells customer data.
Total Control of Categories, Transactions, and Your Balance Sheet
Mint doesn’t let you delete or rename default categories. You can’t delete transactions or modify your balance sheet. But with spreadsheets powered by Tiller Money, you have total control of categories. You can also use custom category groups and tags.
Automatic Categorization Based on Your Rules, Not Mint’s
Mint attempts to automatically categorize your transactions, leading to errors requiring manual fixes. But with Tiller Money, you have total control of categorization rules. You can even choose automatic, on-demand, or zero categorization.
Better Reporting and Graphs
Mint offers just a few graphs that can’t be customized. (You can’t even make a simple profit and loss report.) But Tiller Money offers dozens of customizable reports. Plus you can use any of the hundreds of reports, charts, and graphs available for Google Sheets.
Mint is designed to track individual accounts. But Tiller Money offers all the collaboration features of Google Sheets, so you can securely share your spreadsheets with your spouse or bookkeeper.

Unlike Mint, Tiller Money lets you budget with custom time periods and lumpy income.
