Daily Tips for Frugal Living + Giveaways

Have you heard of LearnVest yet?

“We want to help you live a richer life.
We aim to do this by providing unbiased financial information to all women so that they can make the best financial decisions possible.”

Here’s a little story about how LearnVest came to be:

“It was Spring of 2006, and Harvard Senior, Alexa von Tobel, was sitting around a table with a group of friends, discussing how ridiculous it was she had never had a single class on personal finance. The irony was Alexa was going to work as a trader at a Morgan Stanley’s internal hedge fund and had just deferred Harvard Business School for two years. Alexa spent the next twelve months researching the topic and continuously found herself dissatisfied with what was readily available. Most of the personal finance resources rarely started with the basics and none of them spoke directly to her.

In December of 2008, Alexa took a leave of absence from Harvard Business School to pursue her dream of creating an online platform to help women everywhere gain control of their finances. In September 2009, LearnVest closed $1.1 million in venture and angel funding and was selected as one of the 50 most promising start-up companies by TechCrunch.”

I use so many of the tools available on LearnVest… I love the tips in the daily emails, because most of them really are relevant to me. I use a lot of the tools in the “Money Tuneup” section to help me budget and plan, and the tips in the “Living Frugally” section are great.

This is a finance site that is actually fun and interesting. Like today, for Earth Day, you can go check it out and find a ton of discounts exclusively for LearnVest members, on tons of affordable “green” fashions. PLUS, they are GIVING AWAY a bunch of fun fashions too!

I love this site, and wanted to share it with you guys too! I totally recommend that you sign up for their free daily emails. You’ll learn so much from their quick email tips, and have access to all of their available tools too!
