As many of you know, No Credit Needed is a member of the Money Blog Network. I’m consistently impressed by my fellow members – and the content of their sites. I thought it would be cool to highlight a few of their posts, and how those posts have helped me save money and kept me informed.
A few months ago, I purchased a new-to-us automobile. I used a version of this letter , designed by Five Cent Nickel, in my email to the automobile dealership. I also followed the advice in this post, from Free Money Finance, for finding the real cost of the used automobile. By combining their advice, I was able to get a good deal and we now have a car that we love.
All Financial Matters always does a good job of breaking down complex topics into easy-to-understand posts. For instance, I had a choice of two different index funds – and I used the information here, about S&P 500 Index Funds, to make my choice. As a side note, JLP from All Financial Matters was recently interviewed by Mike Causey. Click over and check it out!
Get Rich Slowly is a treasure trove of valuable personal finance information – and one of my favorite posts is this one about escaping the paycheck-to-paycheck cycle. Personally, I believe that the most important financial decisions we make must be made before, not after, we receive our paychecks, when we sit down to create our monthly budgets.
A few years ago, Consumerism Commentary wrote this interesting post about choosing a new cell phone provider. While I’m stuck in my current contract, I did forward the post to a friend, and HE used it to get a great deal!
Having a new baby is great – and expensive. Thankfully, Wise Bread has some great DIY tips for new parents. Our baby girl is awesome and she’s sleeping five hours at a clip!
Mighty Bargain Hunter compiled this awesome list of money related forums and message boards. I love connecting with other people who are interested in personal finance and money management.
I hope you’ll take a minute or two to visit each of these sites.
