My Three Favorite Personal Finance Websites
Welcome to Saving Money with Andrew!
After criticizing the entire financial influencer universe last week in Can You Trust That Financial Influencer?, you might wonder what online personal finance sources I find credible. A few of my favorites below:
The Bogleheads community takes its name from Jack Bogle, the founder of Vanguard (the second-largest asset manager in America) and a proponent of low-fee passive investing. The Bogleheads Wiki is a fantastic place to start if you are trying to learn the basics of personal finance, or dig deeper into a specific topic, and the Bogleheads message board is a (mostly) good community.
Reddit Personal Finance
r/Personal Finance is basically a slightly more entertaining version of Bogleheads with a somewhat younger crowd. Lots of useful info, and members are generally helpful. A lot of Reddit is filled with bad advice and really immature people, but r/Personal Finance is pretty good.
I also really enjoy The Moneyist, an money advice column by Quentin Fottrell, a former reporter for the Wall Street Journal. The letters he receives are consistently interesting, and often touch on a lot of emotional and interpersonal issues involving money.
And now, Andrew’s pick(s) of the week:
The Fight Over Penn Station and Madison Square Garden
The Hotel Cabanas That Cost More Than Most Rooms
‘How Will I Pump?’: When Your First Work Trip After Maternity Leave Is to Ukraine With President Biden
