2. Grocery Wars
- Saturday, May 12, 2018
For a typical consumer, a trip to the grocery store might mean little more than a quick run to pick up essentials like bread and milk. Cart filled. Self-checkout. Back out the sliding doors. So mundane, none of it is given a second thought once you’re back in the car with your purchases.

- Friday, October 13, 2017

9. Managing Money is a Marathon, Not a Sprint
- Friday, August 4, 2017
Ray’s Take: Training to run a marathon and creating a financial plan have a lot in common if you’re going to succeed.

20. Good Health, Wealth Go Hand in Hand
- Thursday, March 5, 2015
Ray’s Take: One of the biggest and most challenging issues in retirement is how to plan and pay for health care expenses. Medical bills can mushroom in later life and empty nest eggs.

24. Identity Theft and Social Media
- Thursday, June 19, 2014
Ray’s take: You just logged into your online banking and your account is empty. You go to apply for a loan and are told you don’t qualify due to overextended credit. You file your tax return only to discover it has already been filed and your refund check issued and cashed. These are some of the very real things that have happened due to identity theft.

29. What If You Need Money – Fast?
- Thursday, December 5, 2013

30. Should Kids Work?
- Thursday, June 27, 2013

32. Zero Budget – What a Boon
- Wednesday, April 3, 2013
