Given the slow economy, freelance writers like me don't have much in our bank accounts to track--which is why Chase banking online seems to do the trick for now. But I just started my own freelance business (www.brevityandwit.com), and imagine the business I could drum up with a free copy of MS Office on hand! :)
And the winner of the MS Office prize is:

Do you have the tools to succeed?
There are many ways to go about managing your personal and business finances. We often share our best tips here on Wise Bread, and we also love to hear how you tackle the messy task of keeping all your pennies in a row! In addition to the more popular software and online solutions that are currently offered, we have enjoyed trying out some of the more customizeable solutions available via sites like SlideShare. Just recently, we were able to present a versatile and simple family budgeting tool via SlideShare, and we loved telling you about how it can be used to simplify family finances.
Since sharing is really what we want to be about, we don't just want to give you ideas — we want to equip you with tools, as well! That's why in addition to this week's prizes of Amazon Gift Cards (which are perfect for stocking up on paper, pens, or any other "tools" you use to stay organized), we are giving one lucky reader their own copy of Microsoft Office for the Mac or PC, compliments of SlideShare and Microsoft.
Just let us know your favorite tools for keeping your finances in order via our comment thread or on Twitter, and you'll be entered to win! Dozens of readers have already won. You could be next!
