Youtube has always been a place of inspiration and motivation for me. There is just something about watching a video of someone sharing their particular journey with us. It is so encouraging to see someone else in the same position as me working through their debt. Personal finance youtubers are on the rise and there are many of them in different positions all sharing their stories. Of course, over the years that have been a few families that have inspired me and I want to share their channels with you today.
Favorite Personal Finance Youtubers
Budget Girl is a Dave Ramsey enthusiast who has shared her debt free journey on Youtube for the past four years. She paid off over $30,000 in student loan debt as a single women working as a journalist. Budget Girl (Sarah) became debt free in mid 2017. Sarah is still sharing frugal living lifestyle videos. If you need inspiration on how to budget and see someone who shares their true numbers online Budget Girl is the place to visit! Catch up on old videos. She is such an inspiration and has a ton of content.
Lydia Senn is the founder of the website Frugal Debt Free Life. Lydia shares two videos per week on frugal living and also sprinkles in small business videos. I love Lydia because she keeps her videos short and most of them are tips and tricks on how to stay on budget and stretch your dollar further. She has also three boys and will share a bit of her life as a mom.
One Big Happy Life
Tasha and Joseph of One Big Happy Life are probably my all time favorite personal finance youtubers. Tasha and Joseph are not followers of Dave Ramsey and bring a different flare to the personal finance world on Youtube. I found this power couple when they posted their video of being over 1 million dollars in debt and weren’t worried about paying it off. Their video went against everything I had believed in and intrigued me. Tasha and Joseph continue to share their personal finance wisdom with the world and how they balance being lawyers and raising a family.
Our Life On a Budget
Angela of Our Life on a Budget is another Dave Ramsey enthusiast who documented her family of fours journey out of debt. Angela and her husband Jeff paid off over $58,000 in debt while their children participated in expensive hobbies. She does share her monthly budget with the world and shares the differences between Canadian costs and American costs. It’s interesting to see the difference in prices across the border and how the Canadian economy differs.
Pennies into Pearls
Brittany of Pennies into Pearls has to be one of the most energetic and entertaining personal finance youtubers I currently watch. Brittany and her husband recently bought a house in the San Diego area and brought us through their journey of home buying as a one income family.
The Budgeting Wife
Marissa and her husband paid off $87,000 in student loan debt and is now sharing tips and tricks on how to live a debt free life. Marissa sprinkles in lifestyle videos with her personal finance tips which keep her content interesting.
The Former Mrs. Jones
I just love everything about The Former Mrs. Jones. She sold her house, cars, and furniture to kick their debt to the curb. Kristy went from being a spender and acting like the Jones family and turning her life around and paying off everything. In 2017 Kristy and her husband welcomed their debt-free twins and now share advice on living well on a budget.
Wendy has a strong personality and I love her for it. She is one of those women who knows exactly what she stands for and isn’t afraid to share it. Wendy, her husband, and daughter are currently living with family as they tackle over $300k in consumer debt. Her situation is interesting because the debt didn’t necessarily come from personal overspending but from trying to help others.
