The Best Personal Finance Blogs 2018 – Written By Moms
First, one of the blogging titans to start with a bang:
Crystal – Money Saving Mom
Do I really need to introduce Crystal Paine, the Money Saving Mom? Her blog was one of the first I ever followed! Deal posts are her jam but she also has a lot on finance and time management for moms! Crystal and her husband started their life together on a beans-and-rice budget. Much has changed and Crystal now not only runs a huge blogging business but also teaches other moms how to manage money better and earn more. (She has a huge resource library for subscribers, too.)

Emma Johnson – Wealthy Single Mom, shares her unique perspective of being a single mom that builds that full, awesome life of her dreams. She is an inspiration and totally open on her personal finance blog! The New York Observer named her one of the “9 Most Eligible Singles” and her podcast is named a “Top Personal Finance Podcast” by US News. Emma also published a book: The Kickass Single Mom: Be Financially Independent, Discover Your Sexiest Self, and Raise Fabulous, Happy Children (Penguin, 2017), that was a #1 bestseller.

Rich Single Momma. Samantha got divorced 10 years ago and found little encouragement for single moms who want to thrive with money. So she decided to start her own personal finance blog in 2008 to share what she found helpful for working single moms who want to make more money and manage well what they have.

Read what she has learned along the way on her finance blog and be inspired!

Rosemarie – The Busy Budgeter
Rosemarie Groner, aka The Busy Budgeter, has been a huge inspiration in my blogging journey. She grew her personal finance blog to a full-time gig in less than a year! Woah. Apart from that, she is a budgeting and money-saving expert and shares her best money advice on her blog. I just love the “kind voice” she uses and, of course, I took her free course “The 90 Day Budget Bootcamp“. It was a thorough walk-through of my haves, not-haves, and how to manage well what I have. Until now, thousands of people have gone through the bootcamp and learned budgeting step-by-step.

Keep Thrifty. The blog by Jaime and her husband Chris is the one you should follow if you want to break free from a consumerist mindset and start dreaming big. Jaime and her husband went from survival mode with not 2 under 3, but 3 girls under 2, to taking a one-year mini-retirement and traveling the world, including almost all 50 states!! How inspiring is that!
