If you’re looking to save or make some extra money, I’ve put together a round up of the best money books, all written by my fellow U.K Money Bloggers.
Since becoming a blogger myself, I’ve met and chatted with lots of other bloggers that I wasn’t aware of before and I also read a lot more blogs than I ever have done before. One of the best things about being part of the U.K money bloggers community as that we are all there to support each other – there’s no competition because we are all striving towards the same thing – making sure our money is working for us and our readers.
The problem is, the more blogs I read, the trickier it can be to remember who wrote what!
Many of the bloggers who I do follow have proven themselves to be experts in their field by writing a book or ebook in their chosen area of expertise. This is great because it provides all their given knowledge in one subject, all in one place and I don’t have to go searching for individual blog posts.
Sometimes it really nice to take a long hard look at a subject in more depth and the advantages of a physical book mean that holiday or areoplane reading when there’s no WiFi is easily taken care of. Here is my round up of the money books by U.K money bloggers.

Jordon Cox – Secrets to Saving – The Ultimate Secrets to Saving

It’s also great for beginners – people so often struggle on how to get started with couponing – this book could well be the perfect solution.
Money Books – Food & Drink
This book is full of recipes that use ingredients that can found in budget supermarkets Lidl and Aldi. As more people switch to shopping at these discount chains over the likes of Sainsbury’s and Morrison’s there can still be drawbacks – especially when ingredients are unavailable and we end up doing top up shops at other supermarkets. Author Amy Sheppard hit on the idea that it is our recipes that need to change rather than the supermarkets and she aims to inspire readers to cook on a budget without the need to shop around.
