There are many ways to save money. One way to save money is to join a money, or personal finance forum. Taking part in a money forum will help you save money in a variety of ways.
There are a variety of reasons someone may want to save money. Due to the current state of economy, it may be necessary to save money to reduce expenses or to make up for lost income. Most people who read or post on the forums are looking for ways to save money are doing so to eliminate debt. However, there are also those who may want to save money for retirement or a college fund. Whatever your reason to save money, there is tons of advice, tips, budget help, and experienced people to help you reach your goal in the money forums.
A forum designed to help you save money is somewhat different than just a blog, although blogs are most likely a part of the website. The forum website most likely includes articles on various topics concerning saving money, and message boards broken out by subject where you can go to read or comment on various subjects on how to save money, develop a budget, or eliminate debt. Most forums appealing to those who want to save money are free to join and simple to establish an account and participate at any level. Setting up an account will allow you to read ideas from others who want to save money, and post ideas of your own. Often, a helpful feature available when you sign up, is the ability to choose to receive an e-mail any time a new post is added to a message board you are interested in. Joining one forum often leads to information about other forums, some of which may be of more specific interest to you and your plan to save money.
One of my favorite web sites, SavingAdvice.com, is a great place to start your forum experience. The layout is simple and neat, with an introduction to the web site that describes it as “a personal finance website created specifically to show you different ways to save money”. Another website, LivingLikeNoOneElse.com, is a forum established based on financial guru Dave Ramsey, his money management principles, and his quote of “If you’ll live like no one else, later you cLan live like no one else” . The first step in Dave Ramsey’s baby step plan is to save money-an emergency fund of $1,000.
Another very popular site with forum discussions on how to save money, is part of the MSN site, Money Central on MSN. One very popular message board on this site, Women in Red, is targeted to women who are “seeking financial sanity”. Columnist MP Dunleavey (Mia) and eight other women came together on the MSN money site in 2006, exposing their personal financial struggles to save money and get out of debt. The forum is now so popular it is freqented by members all over the world and sub-groups, such as WIRR (Women in Red Racers), have evolved.
If your objective is to save money, for any reason, a world of advice is out there waiting for you. Becoming part of a money forum brings like-minded people together with the same question – how can I save money?
