Figuring Out How To Save On A Barely There Budget? Try Joining A Financial Community

Good morning Beautiful Women Supporting Women,

Happy Monday to you!

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend. Mines was spent doing a workshop that focused on Having An Attitude of Gratitude. In this environment, it is so important to focus on what you do have, as opposed to what you don’t. The old adage “the glass half full, as opposed to the glass half empty” couldn’t be further from the truth. Sunday I just listened to my jazz and relaxed. Make sure you have time for YOU!

Last week we continued our conversation on savings and budgeting. This week’s blog will focus on the financial communities that are available for us to join on either Facebook, Instagram or their website.


Whether you are looking for general personal finance advice or want to chat with fellow investors, Reddit has a subreddit (forum) for just about any money topic. The forum discusses credit cards, credit repair, personal finance and poverty finance.

Financial Common Cents:

If you want to unlock the mysteries of credit scoring and credit cards, this large group provides all the support and knowledge you need. Perfect for those who want to improve their credit scores, get out of debt and get on track to start saving, the Financial Common Cents Facebook group is an encouraging environment to help you achieve your goals.


Bravely is a community that gives self-identified women the financial tools to bridge the gap between their dreams and their realities. Founder and financial feminist Kara Perez often hosts free money chats on the company’s Instagram stories that reach far beyond what the average student learns in Econ 101. The Bravely website has an array of free resources, including a budgeting guide to teach you how to align your spending with your values. 

The Bogleheads Forum:

Named after Vanguard founder and investor, John Bogle, the term “Bogleheads” is the title adopted by many investing enthusiasts, and particularly those who post and comment on the Bogleheads forum. Like Reddit, they have a variety of topics too.

Your Money and Your Life:

The Your Money and Your Life Facebook group is National Public Radio’s (NPR),  online community for anyone who wants to start saving or make better informed money decisions. This group compliments NPR’s “Your Money And Your Life” series and provides readers a place to discuss how finances intermingle with current events, politics, daily news and everyday life. Members discuss a range of money topics such as car buying, retirement planning, family planning and career moves with thousands of other money enthusiasts.

Why not put yourself in the best position to win! Give them all a try and see which one fits your needs and style. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

If you have any additional questions, please feel free to post here or reach out to me at:

As always, thank you for reading.

Have a beautiful and blessed week.
