See a penny, pick it up, and all the day you’ll have good luck. That’s kind of what this roundup is. While it may not make you any luckier than you already are, it will definitely make you wiser when it comes to all things money. These are some of my favorite posts from some of my favorite blogs when it comes to all things money.
Financial Literacy is Your Responsibility
Here’s the thing about Sarah from Smile and Conquer. She says a lot of what I think about getting your financial ish together; she’s just a lot more collected about it. Her post has tons of resources to share with your favorite friends who might need someone to throw them a lifeline or buy them a vowel when it comes to making heads or tails of their money.
Maslow would totally nod in agreement with this money hierarchy post from Boomer and Echo. Whether you’re new to the personal finance world or you’ve been hanging around for awhile (raises hand), you’ve no doubt seen the headlines that scream about financial success stories. While the top of the pyramid is definitely where we are all headed, understanding the different financial levels can put a strong financial footing under you no matter where you are on your journey.
If you think you’ve done all you can to save money, you’ve got another think coming. Just ask Nicola from The Frugal Cottage. In this post, she breaks down different ways to save based on financial categories. Then, she links to all the resources in all the land. Seriously. Check it out.
If investing still feels like the deep end of the pool, there’s no shame in that game. In fact, we can doggy paddle together. Thanks to posts like this from Emily at The John and Jane Doe Guide to Money and Investing, we don’t actually have to flounder. Look no further than this for a crash course in all things mutual funds.
FinTech & Blogging
In what has to be one of the freshest takes on FinTech, this post from The Lady in Black dishes on two of her recent trysts with digital money apps. Will either fling last? Only time—and her blog—will tell. If you’re looking to get your hands on some new tech-savvy ways to do money, don’t miss this post.
Are There Too Many Personal Finance Bloggers?
He said it, not me. No siree! I did not steal the cookies from the cookie jar, nor did I ask the question that is on the mind of anyone who has ever stumbled into the personal finance slice of cyberspace. I’m not about to spoil the post from Fairly Frugal Fella, either, so just click it, OK?
And there you have it. Six totally different takes on all the ways that money matters. As much as I love finding a good lost penny, I loved these posts more.
So Tell Me…What are your favorite money tips or posts? I love links enough to fish them out of spam, so go ahead and leave one or two.
