February was interesting at Get Rich Slowly. I had less time to write this month than at any other time since starting the site. I did my best to maintain quality, but I’m looking forward to finally doing this as a full-time gig starting sometime in the next few weeks.
Because of concerns with the U.S. economy, my subject matter strayed to large-scale topics more often than I’d like last month. I don’t know much about economic policy, and I’d rather write about how to save money on groceries than the implications of a recession. (And I suspect you’d prefer that, as well.)
Here are some of the best GRS articles from February:
- February 4th: How to quit your job gracefully
- February 5th: The power of positive cash flow
- February 11th: Extreme personal finance: America on $10 a day
- February 12th: Mortgage prepayment made easy: Own your home in half the time
- February 13th: How to prepare for a baby (without going broke) (a guest post from Lynnae)
- February 18th: Scratch Beginnings: An interview with Adam Shepard
- February 21st: Frugality in practice: Home-based physical fitness
- February 25th: Friends and money: Coping with social spending situations
- February 28th: The key to wealth is being satisfied with what you already have
