4 of Our Favorite Personal Finance Blogs

There are a lot of personal financial blogs out there competing for your attention. Hundreds, in fact. So rather than spending hours reading through site after site to land on one that addresses your concerns and goals, here's a list of our favorites. We find them insightful, smart and far-reaching, offering great guidance and useful information.

Wisebread.comThe site’s tag line says it all: “Living Large on a Small Budget.” From credit cards to life hacks and coupons to career advice, the site is dedicated to viewing money as a tool – not a goal in and of itself. It’s a great place to start practicing solid financial habits.

Topics range from personal development to career advice – and there are quizzes galore to help you assess where you are and where you want to go.

The Simple DollarCovers the financial basics with engaging articles, fun graphics, and relevant topics. Extra points for the site’s Education section which offers up-to-date information on affordable online education, financial aid articles and loan information.

 Afford Anything—This blog explores two critical questions:

  • How can you make smarter decisions about your money, time and life?
  • How can you align your daily behaviors and habits with the lifestyle you value most?

The site’s founder Paula Pant includes wide-ranging articles on investing, travel, lifestyle design, financial independence, real estate, entrepreneurship, productivity, personal development and philosophy of money.

We hope these are helpful to you as you work through the steps of developing your own financial plan!
