A Feast of Thanksgiving Financial Links


In our house Thanksgiving is all about having the five of us together and eating way too much, passing out in a food coma and then eating some more.  In between the food, family, football, shopping, or whatever it is that you do over this holiday weekend here are some links to some great financial blogs if you have the time to do a little reading.


Must-read financial blogs

I recently attended the FINCON conference for financial bloggers in St. Louis and had a chance to connect and reconnect with some of these great bloggers.  This is a list of finance blogs that in my opinion offer great financial information and insights.

Getting Your Financial Ducks in a Row

Consumerism Commentary

Barbara Friedberg Personal Finance

Mom and Dad Money

The Dollar Stretcher

Frugal Rules

Free From Broke

AAAMP Finance Blog

Len Penzo dot Com

Modest Money

PT Money

Money Crashers

Good Financial Cents

The College Investor

The Reformed Broker


Wealthcare For Women

This is not in any way, shape, or form an exhaustive list and I’ve certainly omitted some outstanding blogs.  None the less, the list above provides a great start in terms of finance blogs you should consider adding to your reading list.

Thanks for the recognition 

I want to thank Crain’s Chicago Business for featuring this blog in their recent article 8 must-read (and locally written) finance blogs.  My blog was profiled in The Chicago Financial Planner: A self-starter’s money guideNote this link might require you to log-in to their free limited subscription option. 

Jean Chatzky, the financial editor for NBC’s Today Show, was kind enough to mention this blog as her top pick for investing blogs in a piece for AARP Personal Finance Blogs You Should Read.

I hope that you and your families and loved ones have a great Thanksgiving holiday and enjoy the time spent together.

      Well deserved Matt. We did what we always do which is eat too much, fall asleep, then have desert. Bummer of a Packer game. Trips to the airport today and tomorrow as the kids head back. Enjoy the rest of the holiday weekend.
