One of the main focuses in my life as I’m sure you have noticed in previous posts is personal finance. I’ve been in completely broke, in debt and living paycheck to paycheck, and it’s not a life I would wish upon anyone. I was happy to discover the concepts behind personal finance when I did because it allowed me to quickly dig myself out of the hole I had so willingly allowed myself to fall into.

The following personal finance blogs were and still are a big help in my journey to financial freedom and I hope they provide the insight you need to get your to a better financial state.


Without further ado and in no particular order…

Budgets are Sexy

J$ is my man! This is the first financial blog I ever came across courtesy of a pin I found on Pinterest. He writes about a broad range of topics all somewhat related to personal finances. My favorite of his posts are his Side Hustle series where he interviews someone with a unique side hustle to give you insight on a possibility to earn some extra cash. This is a great site if you are looking for fun reading with a lot of personality.

Young Adult Money

DC’s is another one of the blogs I lost my PF virginity to. His posts on ways to save money are killer. Another favorite of mine that he does is on Friday he does to Weekly round-up posts. One is a post with all of the current giveaways that are running on various blogs and the second is his favorite posts of the weeks. I was lucky enough to have my Tropical Green Smoothie recipe featured on his roundup post. Is it lame that I completely went geeky fan girl when I woke up to the email notifying me?

Project Ikonz

Project Ikonz is a relatively new blog but is full of great insight into the world of personal finance. Ikonz takes difficult concepts and breaks them down to you in an easy to understand fashion and covers a variety of topics. I actually find it ironic that on many occasions I’ve gone to visit his site and found his newest post was something I was recently looking in to. (including yesterdays post, but more details on that later)

The Broke and Beautiful Life

This blog that is helpful in the PF department but being a young adult female is one I can also very closely relate to. Her blog is primarily focused on finances but she also adds in very interesting opinionated posts and some girly stuff to boot.

Frugal Rules

John over at Frugal Rules has a very mature writing style. I read his blog regularly but the ones that stand out to me that have been very resourceful have been his posts on investing, real estate and credit card churning. He’s also recently written some posts on frugal travelling tips that I plan on utilizing very soon!

I hope you are able to find some time to check out a few or all of these blogs, they are definitely worth a gander!
