Finance Websites

I'm sitting here at Education Week enjoying myself. In one of my classes this morning I was told about some good financial resources. I immediately thought they would be good to post here. So while I was taking a lunch break I happened upon a computer lab I could use and ducked right in.

The teachers here are limited on the websites they can recommend to the students. Our teacher, Brother Sudweeks, told us though, we are blessed to have a couple that are approved and are really good. Not surprisingly they come through the church. If you are familiar with provident living at all you are probably aware of the first one: providentliving.org.

The second site comes through BYU and has a lot of info on it. I haven't had a chance to really look through it yet, but I'm excited to do that when I get home. It is personalfinace.byu.edu. It helps you to create a budget, learn about investing, allows you to download information from workshops. you can even find the info from the class I am taking this week, but I'll have to link you to thatlater since I need togo eat lunch.

Have fun!


  1. Sounds like a wonderful week for you! I loved going to Education Week in the past and I have to say it did make a big impact on my life. I need to plan to go next year! Thanks for the financial resource info! Are you able to resist all that ice cream and those yummy brownies? -Marie

  2. I loved this week and will be posting some more resources I found out later this week!

    I don't have a hard time resisting the brownies. I'm not really into chocolate flavored things, though I sometimes find myself eating them just because they are there. Now salty things - that's another story!
