MR.CBB’s Weekly Blog Post Picks August 17,2012

Mr.CBB’s Week in Review

Well it’s been another one of those weeks in the summer where what you want to get done, doesn’t always happen. There has been so much rain in Ontario I was starting to think I was in the UK where rain is like Tim Horton’s Coffee- always readily available.

This week I finished off the front entry door although I do have a bit more touch up painting to do. It took a bit longer than expected because of the rain and the on/off of the door due to painting. We are happy with the way it looks and are happy we held out until we found a great deal on the insert and door that we wanted. I’m not sure if I want to do it again although my neighbour casually mentioned he was thinking about changing his door.

Lastly, we picked (or should I say ‘I”) picked the apples this week from the tree with Mrs. CBB down below. I’ll admit it was fun shaking the tree and watching the apples pop her off the top of the head ha… Ah come on it was fun.. just small little crab apples. I’m sure she will get me back with something much worse. So we ended up with about 4 huge stainless steel bowls full of apples ready to be made into crab apple jelly although last year it was more like a jam. Mrs.CBB was even so kind as to take a picture of me for all of you. See if you can spot Waldo, I mean Mr.CBB in the tree!

A big thanks to Femme Frugality for nominating Canadian Budget Binder for the Sunshine Award which is now the second nomination for this award. Cheers FF!

Well that’s all folks, hope you enjoyed your week as much as I did! Until then I leave you with CBB week in review and all the best from around the web coming straight at you from me, Mr.CBB … a.k.a Mr. Wow!

Mr. CBB
I’m from the UK and now a recent permanent resident in Canada. I bought my first house at the age of 21 after University then my second at the age of 24. I’ve always been fascinated with personal finance, savings, learning to make money and watch it grow while combating debts along the way. Canadian Budget Binder is a place where I get to share my experiences with personal finance and learn about yours along the way. I hope you stick around and check me out on Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest where I am active on all social media sites. Cheers, Mr.CBB

Ken finally seems to be noticing the difference with us having money! He commented to me tonight that he has noticed that we haven’t been “in the hole” for a few months! :-) Yay!!!

    • That’s great news Jen about Ken noticing the hard work you have been doing. I’ve never been on a cruise so I have no idea about that. Let me know what you think of my balls. Make sure you spice them up good and after they come out of the deep fryer with salt so they taste great!!! Use the potatoe flakes with garlic… I had a free box I got but we use them for another potato recipe. Cheers darlin… typin with one finger taped up.. bloody apples..
