Blogger Savings Rate Index 2017

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 third edition of the #BSRI.
