There’s an increasingly big and brilliant haul of stories and advice out there about the pounds in our pockets. Each week, we’ll scour the best of the UK’s personal finance blogs and tell you what caught our eye.

Ms Money Maximiser is a lovely blog, talking all things money. It aims to help others to achieve sound financial health and rediscover life and passions by focusing on the simple things in life.
One of Ms Maximiser’s latest blog posts talks about why you should change your budget. It covers emergencies, change in circumstances, and taking charge of your money. ‘A budget is telling your money where to go instead of wondering where it went – John Maxwell’.

Savvy Dad was set up by Olly and Fi in order to raise funds for Great Ormond Street Hospital and to generate funds to pay for their son’s medical care. The blog combines the couple’s 14 years of experience in primary teaching and early years education, and the frugal knowledge they’ve gained from running a money saving community to help provide thoughtful insight on frugal living with a family.
In this article, Savvy Dad makes clear all the options that potential borrowers have before they agree to a personal loan. Just like with a mortgage, the savings could be huge if you get the interest rate right. Super important stuff to know. Great piece, Savvy Dad.
