Thursday Tidbits #6

by Kay Lynn

Where do you get financial information?  In addition to the usual suspects (newspapers, magazines and financial services companies) I wanted to tell you about a couple of resources I use. 

AARP isn’t just for retired people anymore and they have a lot of resources on personal finance and money.  Another money newsletter I subscribe to is from  Now there’s a women who knows about money! But she has experts including Suze Orman producing articles and videos on a wide variety of financial topics.  Check them out and also let me know about your favorite resources.


There are a lot of giveaways in the blog world.  This post promotes only those hosted by personal finance bloggers.
