4 great blogs to boost your financial I.Q.

Reading material for your financial health

One of my goals for 2017 is to read more and learn more.  I’ve been slowly churning my way through parenting and business books, but I also enjoy being able to read shorter articles on a daily basis.  I often pick up a few pearls of wisdom from shorter pieces that I can put to immediate use.  I’ve found the following blogs to be very informative and useful to improving my financial I.Q.

Bigger pockets – A real estate investment blog with a wealth of information from seasoned real estate investors who are willing to share their experiences.

White Coat Investor – This blog was started by a physician and is aimed at health care professionals.  However, it has lots of useful information that is pertinent to most people, like mortgage refinancing and budgeting.  I actually used his advice to refinance my student loans and I’m saving about $1,000 every month on student loan payments.

Afford Anything – My colleague introduced me to this blog recently and the articles are fun to read.  The premise of this blog is to get more out of life for less, even if that means doing things in a slightly less conventional way.

Mr. Money Mustache – This is one of the most popular blogs in the FIRE (Financial Independence Retire Early) community.  It’s about achieving financial independence by living beneath your means and reducing your cost of living.

What are your favorite financial blogs?  I’m always looking for recommendations for new reading material.  Please share in the comment section below.

  1. Such an important topic! And I’m glad you’re enjoying Afford Anything. 😉
    I also love the Mad Fientist podcast. He interviews a wide variety of people who have obtained or are on track to financial independence (including MMM, Paula Pant, J.L. Collins, Vicki Robin… and lots of other awesome people doing creative things with their lives and money). Probably my favorite podcast on the web right now. Enjoy! 😀
