Many are looking for ways to better manage their money and save for the future. There are plenty of resources around, from books to seminars, providing assistance. However, who really has the time for either? Thankfully, there is plenty of help online. Discover what the top five personal finance sites can offer you.

1. Kiplinger.com An online offshoot of its magazine, kiplinger.com provides myriad resources such as financial quizzes, online forums and calculators. It contains the standard sections related to investment and retirement, along with a few more useful additions including:

2. Federalreserveeducation.org This site provides money management help straight from the Federal Reserve. It includes help with choosing the right bank for your needs, even aid for women small business owners. When it comes to getting information on financial matters, there is no better place than straight from the horse's mouth.

3. Forbes.com More article-based than kiplinger.com, forbes.com provides guides for managing money and investing. It also offers plenty of useful tools and calculators to aid in establishing a workable budget.

4. ConsumerReports.com You can make more informed spending decisions by reading the various articles and tips available at this consumer-advocacy and -awareness site. Its wide range of topical content enlightens the public about consumer-related challenges and how to go about resolving them.

5. Cnnmoney.com The name is somewhat misleading as it is a combined effort of Fortune magazine, Money magazine and CNN. It contains special sections for job seekers as well as detailed tax talk. It also answers questions related to debt, credit, money and employment. There is even an "Ask the Expert" section for specific questions you have that the articles on the site do not cover.

These personal finance sites will educate you about savings and retirement planning, and might even help you find a job. With these sites, financial help is only a mouse-click away.
