Great Personal Finance Advice From Around the Web

Here's a look at tips from a few of our favorite personal finance bloggers about managing your money.

Occasionally, I'll see that readers have posted comments that the advice in my column is obvious -- something that everyone should know. That might be true. But as Trent Hamm writes in Isn’t Personal Finance Advice Obvious? on his blog The Simple Dollar, "the core idea might be obvious to some, but not everyone. Actually doing it? That's much harder than it sounds -- and every little nudge that gets someone moving a bit more in the right direction is a big help."

I couldn't agree more. Personal finance advice might seem like common knowledge to those who were raised in a family that taught them how to make smart money decisions or who have made the effort to teach themselves money-management skills. But plenty of people have never received these lessons. And even those who have sometimes need help implementing what they've learned, as Hamm points out. So read on for more great personal finance advice from a few of our favorite bloggers.
