18 Financial Literacy Websites that aren’t Blogs

Posted by idawrites on April 15, 2009 in Children, education, Finance, Money |

When you’re selling a house, the realtor will tell you to move all of your personal stuff, (knick-knacks, photos, and general clutter) into a storage unit so that perspective buyers can see THEIR stuff in your house. It makes sense. After all, it’s harder to envision how your things fit when the house is so full of the seller’s stuff. Lately, I’ve been finding the same perspective while reading personal finance blogs. I’m seeing too much clutter in their stories to apply their lessons to my own life.

So, today I decided not to read the 20th article about how to use a credit card effectively (or how EVYL they are), I decided to go wandering for some less personalized perspectives. Maybe you’d like to get a de-cluttered set of financial resources too… you know… so you can see how it applies to your life, instead of trying to make room in the existing story for your own details.
