My Favorite Tools & Resources

Welcome to the tools page. I have used or tested every tool that I recommend.

I use most of these tools daily, and recommend them due to the impact they’ve had on my life.

I add tools based on their value. I do get a small commission from some of these links, but not from most. Basically, if I really like a tool, I add it to this list, and then I look for an affiliate program. If there is one, I sign up for it; if there’s not one, I still add the tool.

My overall favorite tools are on this page. Or you can browse the categories:

Financial Peace University is Dave Ramsey’s 9 week course for home study.  He covers investing, understanding insurance, budgeting, mortgages, finding bargains, negotiating, giving and much more.  It’s Dave’s complete financial course.

TradeKing is a great place to start investing, with no trade fees and very low entry minimums.  They use a system to invest your money in low-cost index funds, based on what you tell them in a brief questionnaire.

USAA has the best customer service I’ve ever received. They offer standard banking options, investing options (including their own mutual funds), and great insurance. You do need a military affiliation to become a member of USAA.
