5 Blogs to Follow for Frugal Living

As much as I’d love for Bargain Bin Guru to be the only resource you need for personal finance advice, I can’t ignore some of the great blogs and websites out there that are a must follow if you’re looking to gain control of your money. Here are five of the best places on the web for personal financial advice:

1. The Penny Hoarder

Founded by Kyle Taylor in his 20s as a way to document his attempts to climb out of debt and make sound financial decisions, The Penny Hoarder has grown to one of the largest personal finance blogs on the Internet. Initially focused on ways to save money and opportunities for extra cash, The Penny Hoarder has sections on saving money, jobs, side gigs, deals, freebies, budgeting, and even life. With over 8 million newsletter subscribers, The Penny Hoarder has established itself as one of the go-to sites for the frugally minded. Popular post: The Best Internet Freebies

2. Two Cents @ Lifehacker

Overall Lifehacker is an outstanding resource for anyone looking for advice on personal growth, productivity, professional development, and just about any topic you need to make your life easier. Lifehacker’s Two Cents blog offers an abundance of advice, product reviews, and personal finance “hacks” to help you cut expenses, make sound investment decisions, and leverage technology to meet your savings goals.

3. Mr. Money Mustache

Peter Adney retired from his job at the age of 30 after spending years aggressively saving his income and investing.

5. Nerdwallet

In addition to their expense tracking app, Nerdwallet has an encyclopedia of information about personal finance from how to get the best rate on a mortgage to debt pay down strategies.
