Raya’s Recommendations

A message from CGS Founder Raya Reaves...

Hey everyone! I get a lot of asks for recommendations on financial related items. From financial reads to apps to savings accounts, I've been asked what works for me, so I want to share with you all! Each of the items on this page is a service, company, book, item or other recommendation that I've tried and tested for myself. While I can't guarantee you will get the same results, if you are contemplating anything on the list, I can speak highly of it! Please note that some of the items do contain affiliate links, which means I may get a commission if you sign up. Enjoy and happy money saving!
