Jenni from Can’t Swing a Cat chose The Realisation I Don’t Actually Have To Get Married Has Made Me Feel £20,000 Richer. She picked it to include here as ‘It recently occurred to me that, despite my dreams of getting married one day, I could spend that money on so many other things.

Maria from The Money Principle chose Bank of Mum and Dad: Where do You Stand in the Dance of Generations?. Maria picked this one because “There is a lot written by younger bloggers about saving by moving back home to live with their parents. I’m on the other end of this – we still support grown up sons and it’s hard to see the end. What’s more, I’m not convinced we are really helping.”
Jon from The Money Shed chose How to earn thousands with Field Agent, Roamler, Task360, Bemyeye etc. as “It shows that the money is out there for anyone to earn if they are just dedicated enough and have the right mindset!!!”
