I just started this too, but use Excel.  I use Excel's function to calculate average
monthly expenses based on categories, such as food, gas, clothing, etc.  Gives me a
good method to predict the upcoming months.  I've cut these variable expenses from
$1200 to $900 in just one month.  Real cool.  I always thought it was the fixed
expenses that were the problem (mortgage, electric, etc).
