Finally, after three months, I felt like things at Get Rich Slowly were back to normal today. That means I was actually able to spend some time replying to reader e-mail, as well as checking out other personal finance sites. (I spent almost three hours reading about money merge accounts, only to learn that nobody agrees on them — more on that in a few days.) Here are a few articles that may be of interest to you:
- Over at Pick the Brain, John Wesley has tips on how to find affordable car insurance. See also my post offering 10 expert tips for saving on car insurance.
- I like The Digital Luddite’s one step guide to becoming rich. It’s awesome. The one step? “Spend less than you earn.” Where have I heard that before?
- At Raising 4 Boys, Nickel describes how he built an office desk on the cheap. (See also parts two and three.)
- Finally, USA Today warns that winter heating costs could rise by 10% this year. It’s a good thing that Kris and patched up our insulation last weekend!
By the way, if you have first-hand experience with a money merge account, such as those offered by United First Financial, please drop me a line.
