Two years ago, I looked for ways to improve our savings rate.
As it's one of the most powerful personal finance tool to reach Financial Independence, I wanted to study how the leaders in this topic were reaching crazy figures every month.
Hence I created the Blogger Savings Rate Index (aka. #BSRI) in order to get inspired by my fellow personal finance bloggers.
Last year was the second edition of the #BSRI, and we welcomed five new bloggers who joined the challenge.
