January was a great month at Get Rich Slowly. We had great discussions on a variety of topics. February may be a little slow, however; I’m training my replacement at the box factory. To pick up the slack, I’m willing to consider a new round of guest submissions. If you have something to say about personal finance, drop me a line to share your idea.
Meanwhile, here are some of the best GRS articles from the month of January:
