Yep, here and Bogleheads. I use Personal Capital and a little Mint, too, but for learning... those first two.

Here for investing, career and general financial advice. For saving money ideas I like sustainable living sites like Yes! Magazine, Mother Earth News and Treehugger. For side income and frequent flyer hacks I read FatWallet Finance and Boarding Area Blogs.

Start here, for sure.

My first place was John Greaney's Retire Early Home Page: REHP Chronological Index.
The forum has been quiet for years (activity moved to Bogleheads, I think), but the periodic postings in the link were inspirational to me and he still posts them. He has a few, very inexpensive, docs to download. Inspirational is not strong enough. It saved me. Strongly recommended.

Every once in a while I find something on Clark Howard's site:
Clark Howard: Save More, Spend Less and Avoid Rip-offs | www.clarkhoward.com
I found his radio show useful. It helps to hear someone tell me regularly, live cheap, dammit.

No doubt: This website right here.

Morningstar and Seeking Alpha tied for a distant second.

I like MMM forums too, however haven't been able to get on the site for a few days now.

This is my favorite site.

Bogleheads is very informative!
