Trick or treat! Thanks, everyone, for a great October. As usual, there were some excellent discussions. I was also pleased to be able to give away over $600 in prizes to celebrate Get Rich Slowly’s 18-month anniversary. My Real Life took precedence this month, though I did my best to maintain quality around here. This was possible thanks in part to guest posts from readers like you. Here are some of the best GRS articles from the month of October:
- October 1st: Is a money merge account a good way to pay off your mortgage?
- October 9th: Who earns minimum wage? A statistical profile
- October 12th: How to eat at a swanky restaurant without blowing your monthly food budget
- October 17th: Recurring monthly costs: Which are worth it? Which are not?
- October 19th: Ask the readers: Best brick-and-mortar banks?
- October 24th: Understanding the seven habits of wealth (a guest post from Dough Roller)
- October 25th: Frugality is not a dirty word
- October 28th: Building wealth with a virtual employer (a guest post from James)
