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.

Personal Finance

The UK personal finance flow chart

One of the best resources and a tried and tested route to being better off.

Finance Sites

Check my File

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.

Money Saving Expert

A UK financial site with a wealth of financial advice and products to help you save money.


Interactive Investor

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, I’d probably sign up to Vanguard to get started.

Trading 212

Great for trading shares. Use my link, sign up for Trading 212 Invest, top up £10, and we both get a free share!

Do you want to get a free stock share worth up to ‎£⁠100?

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

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.

The calculator site

A useful site which has various calculators for compound interest and the like.
