October has ended, and you know what that means: the holiday advertising and media saturation are about to begin. I’ve shared a couple of Christmas questions already, and plan to feature a few more stories in the next few weeks. If you have questions or suggestions, please let me know. Meanwhile, here are some of the best posts at GRS from the past month:

Best of the Forums
I made an effort to spend more time in the Get Rich Slowly discussion forums this month, but still wasn’t able contribute as much as I’d like. Fortunately, there are plenty of others eager to discuss money there. Here are some interesting threads from this month:
- This reader has a problem I’d like to have: How do I invest $600,000?
- Is it time for a new car?
- What does it mean to live paycheck-to-paycheck? (I’m actually working on a post about this)
- How do you keep short-term savings separate?
- Home meal-delivery services: Are they worth it?
The forums are a great place to chat with your fellow readers. Have questions about emergency funds? Ask! Want to chat about cheap vacations? This is the place to do it. (Since opening last year, the forums have 2300 registered users and nearly 27,500 posts.)
