Open Thread: The '43 Folders' of money management sites?
Merlin Mann | Sep 29 2006
Funny thing -- in the last week or so, I've gotten email from three different people asking me which site I'd consider to be the '43 Folders' of money management.
By this, I think they mean they're looking for some kind of framework and tips for understanding the role money plays in their life, and then trying to find the best and most practical ways to implement and maintain healthy financial change. As against fancy "wealth management," I'm thinking more along the lines of "what tricks will help me get smarter about the day-to-day dollar leakage?" Money Hacks, if you prefer.
The short answer, unfortunately, is I have absolutely no idea.
Lifehacker does lots of coverage of financial stuff, and I've enjoyed reading I Will Teach You To Be Rich and Get Rich Slowly. I think Frugal For Life is pretty close in terms of hack-i-ness (which I mean as a compliment, of course.)
But, you tell me. What are your favorite sites about managing your money? Any places out there you think might especially appeal to 43 Folders readers? Feel free to toss in your favorite books on the matter, too.
