“This blog post is completely useless. It either tells you to get a job to start a business.” This is the comment someone left on one of my posts about making more money. I beg your pardon? You want to make money but don’t want to work for it? And this is a sure fire...
Do you know what you are looking at? No, this is not a trick question. Still, if you though ‘machines’ you’d be wrong. What you are looking at is the future of employment. I took this picture couple of months ago at Schiphol Airport, Amsterdam. Do you remember the...
Editor’s note: I published a version of this article first on JeanChatzky.com several months back. Today I’m giving you, my reader, the updated version of the article. How did you do it? This is what people ask me when hear that we paid off £100,000 (and the...
Yesterday I was training with my personal trainer. Great lad! We got talking. I told him that my strength to weight ratio has gone completely the wrong way because of my writing. You see, the more I write, the less I move; the less I move the heavier and less strong I...
Your money never goes far enough, uh? This sucks. I still remember the time when a month was almost by eternity longer than our monthly income. This is when we got in debt. I didn’t look at my payslips, I didn’t look at my bank balance and I didn’t care what things...
Editor’s note: My regular readers may be under the impression that we don’t do frugality very well, or very willingly; and they may have good grounds for that. On The Money Principle we emphasise the importance of living life to the full, making sure that your money...
Yesterday I read the story of a guy who took loads of pills and booze trying to kill himself because of debt. He survived and was left with sore tum, hurting head and the embarrassment of failure. Embarrassment for which his parents were very, very grateful. You know,...
It has been some time now since I have written about frugality. The last time I did this, I suppose, was when I made my position on what I call 'extreme frugality' (cut your own hair, don't spend anything on fun and use £4 of petrol to save 4 pence on a can of beans...
Yep, what you are looking at is the expensive bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon that I brought back from Chile and it is empty; it was drunk last Friday and it was really great wine. Even greater was the occasion – we said that we will drink this wine, just the two of us,...
Investment – it’s a man’s world, right? Women are happy to have savings accounts, but when it comes to stocks, shares and other investments, it’s the men who get results, not women. Thankfully, that previous statement is a complete mythology. There’s no evidence to...
Saving for retirement has not been on my mind recently. I used to worry about saving for retirement in my 20s. Started saving for retirement, through the extremely beneficial pension scheme of UK universities that has just been changed, in my 30s. In my 40s I worried...
Yesterday I opened my Nutmeg account (for my readers in the US, Nutmeg is the UK ‘sister’ of Betterment) and the first thing I saw was a message saying: In for the long run: history tells us that savvy investors stand firm when markets are choppy! The next thing I...

What people say about us
Maria is one of my favourite debt killers on the ‘net. I love how raw she is, and that she’s not afraid to share her mistakes just as much as her wins! One of the best personal finance blogs in Europe.

The Money Principle is a chocolate box of a blog: not only is there something for everyone but, once you start dipping in, it’s difficult to stop.
– Miss Thrifty Blog –
I realised about three years ago that the only way forward, and prevent us going bankrupt, is for me to take total control of my own and the business spending. I started reading several blogs including The Money Principle. I took control and in March 2016 I became debt free. Many of the blogs I followed were no longer relevant.
The one blog that I still follow, as it is the most relevant to my situation, is The Money Principle. I look forward to those e mails and have found some excellent advice there.
I can only thank Maria Nedeva for the work that she does and hope that she continues.

Maria’s money advice is unrivalled. She says what you need to hear, not what you want to hear. A distinctive voice in a cluttered space, her words are timeless and mandatory reading.

This is the most common sense and thorough way to get out of debt I have read, and I have read many. Thank you.
