Last week, The New York Times launched Bucks, a daily personal-finance blog aimed to help consumers make smart financial decisions. I couldn’t agree more with writer Ron Lieber here:
“If you were freed from your workaday duties, you could easily fill 40 hours a week double-checking the various fees on your monthly bills, researching the move to a new cable provider, repricing insurance policies and keeping up with the newest online financial tools.”The Perfect Gift For Everyone On Your List!Give a Gift Now »

So far Bucks has written about the best savings account interest rates, twentysomethings staying reliant on their parents’ health insurance, and a daily aggregate of consumer news from the Times.
If you’re more into face-to-face discussion of finance (you brave soul!), check out Financially Fit Females, a group I found through Meetup.com, which gathers monthly to talk about personal-finance topics.
Typically, the group meets on the third Thursday of each month, but this month’s meeting was rescheduled (due to snow) for tonight at 6:30 p.m. at Illegal Grounds Coffeehouse, 925 E. 17th Ave.
