Personal-Finance Site Gets Down to Details

BOSTON ( TheStreet) -- Bundle.com, the latest entry among personal-finance Web sites, went live today, joining Mint.com and FiLife in a crowded field. The site's new wrinkle is providing detailed information on spending and saving.

Bundle.com's centerpiece, "Your Money," assesses a user's spending patterns, and compares and contrasts them with others matching their demographic, zeroing in on income, marital status, family size and home city. The site, using anonymous banking data and government statistics, also provides a breakdown of where money is spent, business by business. Writers and users blog about their experiences and savings tips.

Bundle's initial investors include banking giant Citigroup (C - Get Report), software firm Microsoft (MSFT - Get Report) and investment researcher Morningstar (MORN - Get Report), all of which are represented on its board of directors.

By way of example, consider that bellwether of all things Middle American -- Peoria, Ill.

How do things play in Peoria? Peorians outspend the country in nearly every category, including 37% more on shopping and 21% more on food. As the site puts it: "The quintessential American city is more gluttonous than the country itself."

Chief Executive Officer Jaidev Shergill says the site was born from a rude awakening he experienced when, working for Citigroup, he saw a healthy pay raise evaporate before his eyes.

"The money was spent without anything to show for it," he says. "There was nothing extra in my bank account and no additional savings. There was no major upgrade in standard of living. It was money that just disappeared through spending."
