It’s been a l-o-n-g time since I remembered to do a monthly round-up here at Get Rich Slowly. (Since January, in fact.) I’d like to get back in the habit. I think this is a nice way to recap the best discussions from the past few weeks.

Before I start, though, I have to confess a minor stupidity. Earlier this week, I was trying to re-label everything in my gmail inbox to “TEMP”, which would allow me to at least feel like I’d achieved Inbox Zero. Well, somehow I managed to archive all of that mail instead. I know that I can still read it in gmail’s “All Mail” folder. That’s great. But it doesn’t help me actually find which messages I accidentally archived. So, if you’ve sent me e-mail recently and need a reply, I’m afraid you’ll have to re-send it. I apologize. Even computer geeks make technology mistakes sometimes.

Now, let’s take a look at some of the best GRS articles from November:

Note: Don’t forget that elsewhere on GRS, you can find a huge list of homemade Christmas gifts.

The blog isn’t the only part of this site. If you have burning questions about personal finance, one of the best places to get answers is the Get Rich Slowly discussion forum. The forum is 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. The forums have over 4300 registered users and over 51,000 posts.

Note: I’ve separated the Get Rich Slowly twitter account from my personal Twitter account. For GRS updates and personal-finance news, follow GRSblog on Twitter. The jdroth account is where I provide actual personal updates.
