We all need to know good resources to help us in our search for Financial Independence.
Below I list some of the websites, companies and resources I’ve found useful in this journey.
The UK personal finance flow chart
One of the best resources and a tried and tested route to being better off.
A credit check against all the agencies in the UK in one place. I found this very useful when trying to piece together my debts. I’ve come a long way since then, but checkmyfile really helped get me started. *affiliate link.
A UK financial site with a wealth of financial advice and products to help you save money.
I use them to manage my SIPP and ISAs. I like the variety of options I can choose from and the low fixed fee you pay. You can choose ETFs from multiple providers which give you a better choice.
If I wasn’t already signed up to ii.co.uk, I’d probably sign up to Vanguard to get started.

Emma has to be the single-handedly the best thing I’ve used to control my expenses. It links all your bank accounts, credit card and savings account into one place and it works in the UK! I track it every month into a spreadsheet and this is what I make my expense reports from. See my review of Emma.
You need a budget is a great tool and really teaches you budgeting in a novel way that works. It’s US based and that’s why I prefer Emma, but it’s worth a look.
A useful site which has various calculators for compound interest and the like.
