Although this blog is about consumer rights and how not to get fobbed off, I thought it might be useful to share some good money blogs with you. If you are interested in knowing your rights you may also be interested in finding out about ways to save and make money on a variety of things from holidays to personal finance, food to energy saving and selling stuff! There are of course thousands of blogs out there run by people keen to share their ideas and sometimes you may stumble across them and some that are equally as good that you don’t. So I’ll list some for you all in one place so that if you fancy putting your feet up with a cuppa or glass of wine, here are some good ones to start you off. If you find any of them useful or you’d like them to cover a financial issue that fits with their blog then please do mention it in a comment on their (not mine!) blog.
I have tried to provide a varied list to give lots of choice of what’s out there, so that each one I’m showing you, is for the most part, quite different to another.
Be Clever With Your Cash is a blog about helping you do the same. It picked up Best Personal Finance Blog at this year’s Headlinemoney awards. (I was nominated I’ll have you know, but my blog is pretty niche! “I only do complaining” I often say!) Run by Andy Webb covers all sorts of great stuff.
