    I’ll go ahead and say that this very site is great for learning about personal finance, well just about any finance. You have a nice list here, but you should also have your site added in there as well. Anyways, keep up the awesome work.

  • AndreaB>

    This is a really good list of sites here. I’ve frequented a couple of them in my days, but my all time favorite would have to be $5 dinners, simply because I like the ability of eating for such a cheap amount each night. Just imagine how much money you can save eating $5 dinners every night.

  • MoneyHungry

    I love money, I like saving it and I hate spending it. I’ve went to many of these sites in hopes of learning some things about saving as much money as possible. I hate spending money on anything, especially if it’s far too expensive.

  • $imon

    I love finding sites like this that has helped me save money and spend it on the right things instead of wasting it on pointless things. $5 dinners is a good one, I don’t frequent it enough though. I wonder if I could survive off of $5 dinners for a year.

  • Brent88

    Great list. I like Get rich slowly. Anything that can help me make money and do it at a pace I can deal with, is something I can deal with. I’m going to have to check the place out now. As a matter of fact I’m going to check out all of these sites.

  • jenny

  • Jessica Skillings

    This list is very much appreciated!

    It’s so difficult finding trustworthy and reliable sites for personal finance. It seems like most are either trying to sell me something or are offering advice that really doesn’t apply to me at all! I really just want good, honest down-to-earth tips for bettering my finances. Hopefully these will help!

  • Tom O. Bradford

    The Consumerist is pretty much my go to site for financial information, they always have exactly what I’m looking for.

    I love how direct and clear their articles are. They really take the mystery and confusion out of money matters. The more I know the more in control I feel.

  • Holly

    I really love 5DollarDinners! I’ve been following that site for a while now and it has definitely helped me plan more cost effective meals. I used to spend way too much on groceries because I didn’t know how to shop for deals or how to build cheap meals. It’s crazy how much money you can save if you plan ahead and stick to it.

  • Taryn SP

    MoneySavingMom is a godsend for me. Seriously. Her money saving tips and coupon deals are fantastic. She’s got such unique ideas on how to save money and her tips never make me feel like I’m sacrificing the things I love.

    The DIY section and recipes are definitely worth checking out!

  • Ed Roth

    I like the community feel of WiseBread. It’s so different and interactive. I find it much more relatable and engaging than most other financial information sites.

    I find a lot of blogs to be a bit distant and hard to get into. I crave conversation and like voicing my opinion so I rather prefer having a community to share ideas with.

  • MillyM

    I love the name of the site, “Iwillteachyoutoberich.com” I need more knowledge of this in my life. This is an interesting and detailed list of resources. I fully intend to use several of them in the near future.
