Good Financial Cents

October 17, 2009

Each week I’m going to share with you a personal finance site that I enjoy. I started this a while back with Moolanomy, Gather Little by Little, and Being Frugal but got a little sidetracked when our daughter was born.

Good Financial Cents

This week I recommend checking out Good Financial Cents written by Jeff Rose. He’s one of the financial advisor websites with blogs I highlighted a while back. Jeff’s a certified financial planner at Alliance Investment Planning who shares some of his insights about money on his blog.

I like Jeff’s site not only because he’s a practicing financial professional who knows his stuff but also because I agree with the philosophy that a big part of being successful with your money is simply using common sense. For example, his recent post about why you should keep contributing to your 401(k) even when you feel like you’re throwing away money.
