It’s a holiday weekend in the U.S., and I plan to make the most of it. Get Rich Slowly will be quiet until Tuesday. Kris and I will spend time with friends, work in the yard, and begin our de-cluttering project in earnest. (Actually, as I write this, it’s nearly midnight and we’re still up purging all sorts of stuff!)
Two items of note:
- I’m looking for guest authors. At the moment, I’m limiting guest posts to once during the week and once during the weekend. If you have a personal finance tip or story to share, drop me a line.
- What would you like to see covered at Get Rich Slowly? I have a long list of story ideas. You can help me prioritize by saying which subjects interest you most. Investing? Frugality? Home economics? All of the above?
In the meantime, here are some of the best GRS articles from the month of August:
- August 1st: Money Day: Your personal finance holiday
