What are the smartest financial moves you’ve recently made in these tough economic times? Money magazine wants to know.

In a forthcoming story, Money will highlight key moves that investors, savers, workers, and property owners can make to shore up their finances and take advantage of opportunities in this sluggish economy.

As part of that article, we want to include stories from different people about actions they’ve taken to improve their personal finances. We’d love to include your experiences — and wisdom — to supplement the strategies we’re covering in our pages. For instance, did you use last year’s tough market to pick up promising stocks at attractive prices? Did you take advantage of historically low interest rates to refinance existing loans or to take on a new mortgage? Did you re-evaluate your spending during the downturn to boost your emergency savings? The more detail you can provide, the better. If you successfully boosted your rainy day fund, we’d love to know what categories of spending you chose to downsize.
