I admit it, I’m a personal finance junkie. I love reading about budgeting, saving money and planning for my future. Every day I take the time to visit these four websites to make sure I’m up-to-speed on the latest in personal finance news.


1. SmartMoney

I love the content on the SmartMoney.com website but I also love the layout. Nothing annoys me more than a site that has great content but is difficult to navigate; this is not the case with SmartMoney. The homepage is packed with information and the subsections help you narrow down your search better. If you want to focus on stock market-related news, simply head to the Invest tab for all investing-related stories.


2. The Motley Fool

The Motley Fool is really a one-stop shop for all things investing. Whether you’re new to investing or an old pro, Fool.com has something for you. If you find yourself loving the site as much as I do, you can sign up for an account and take advantage of one of the many premium fee-based services available to subscribers.


3. WiseBread

With a tagline like “Living Large on a Small Budget,” it's easy to guess what kind of information WiseBread focuses on. I love how WiseBread’s tips and tricks are easy to implement and can really make an impact on your budget. Articles featured on the homepage today include:



4. Bankrate.com

Bankrate.com has more than just the latest mortgage and CD rates; the site is chock full of information about banking, personal finance and more. If you’re in the market for a new banking product, Bankrate.com should be your first stop. If you want to calculate how much money you need to save now to retire comfortably, Bankrate.com has the tools you need. Don’t forget to check out the site’s bloggers and the advice section for more personal finance news.
