Zendough: Become one with your money

In early January, TransUnion will launch a new personal finance tool called Zendough that, instead of focusing on every transaction you make, aims to help you become one with your money. WalletPop was able to get an early look at the service -- which you can test out with a free, seven-day trial -- and we're impressed overall with the amount of information provided and the easy-to-understand manner in which it's presented.

The first thing you'll notice when you start using Zendough is that the Zen theme runs deep, but rather than being corny, it works. Perhaps it's the calming effect of a bonsai tree, stacked rocks and a Koi pond that makes knowing exactly how much debt you have less of a heart rate elevating experience.
