Mr.CBB’s Week in Review

This week seemed to fly by so fast that I hardly had a moment to enjoy it. I’ve slacked in certain areas of my life simply as there hasn’t been enough time this week. I’m hoping in the upcoming weeks to be back to somewhat of a normal routine.

I’m sure most families that have young children or students off to University or College will be busy this upcoming week. With Labour Day just around the corner life will get a bit chaotic. For others it’s a time to relax and enjoy the long weekend, like me. What are your plans for the long weekend?

I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing when kids go back to school but most of my mates are happy their kids are off and away. Sort of like “don’t let the door hit you on the way out”, ok not that bad. Don’t forget to send your University and College kids off with a Student Budget. Give them the knowledge they need to get ahead in life. If they take it, it’s their win!

As mentioned earlier this week we have harvested at least 5 tomatoes every day and we actually have 2 baby figs on our fig tree which is exciting. The nights are getting colder here in Ontario and I haven’t even started my landscape project that I so desperately need to complete. I’m still looking for a landscape company willing to deliver what I need. Is that too much to ask? I’m sure that will be priority along with the rest of my “honey to-do list”.

On a good note it’s been 7 months and 2 days since Mrs. CBB and I quit smoking and I started this blog. So much to celebrate but the best part is having our life back and having some amazing fans, so thanks.

I know, not too much excitement at the CBB home but it has been a busy week at the blog and around the web. Check out what’s been going on and please share your comments and share this post with your friends! Help Canadian Budget Binder grow.

All The Best,

Mr.CBB

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

  1. Thanks for the mention Mr CBB. And no problem about the recent help. I have to say your search keywords are pretty tame this week. The one with Spongebob intrigues me though. Enjoy your long weekend!

  2. Mary F Campbell says:

    Congratulations to you & Mrs CBB on the 7 months & 2 days as non-smokers!

  3. Joanna Cheevers says:

    Yes, congrats to you and the Mrs. on quitting smoking. Besides the health benefits I am sure your wallet has benefited from quitting, have you calculated how much money you have saved during that time by not purchasing cigarettes? I am sure it is quite a bit! Will try to check some of these blogs out if I can find any free time.

    • I was going to do the math today but time was not on my side as this is a big weekly post for me. Yes please check out some of the posts… that’s why I post them, for all of my fans. Thanks Joanna for reading and thanks for the congrats… maybe we can inspire others as well. Mr.CBB

  4. Congratulations on 7 months + not smoking. Such a wonderful thing. It pains me to see people struggling with cigarette addiction as many of my relatives suffered from smoking related illnesses. Now you’ll be able to be around for everyone much longer! I agree with you, this week did fly by. Where did the time go? I am in Ontario too, and am welcoming the cooler weather, until it gets too cool that is. :P

    • I was just saying to Eddie at Finance Fox that it was one of the most difficult things I’ve had to do in my life, but I did it. One can’t tell someone they need to quit or should quit it has to come from inside. So although Mrs.CBB motivated me I took her challenge on as inside I really did want to quit but didn’t know how. Cheers MR.CBB

  5. Maybe it’s the mortgage on your life that you may have to take out to go to nursing school. Thanks for the mention!

  6. Congrats on your quitting smoking – something that’s very tough, and something that I’m battling everyday. Yet I lead a great healthy lifestyle in other faucets of my life. Sad, I know!!

    Thanks for the mention of my article, glad you enjoyed the read. Are you staying in the city or heading out?

    • I probably wouldn’t have done it if it wasn’t for Mrs.CBB as she was the one who motivated me to quit. I’m happier than ever mate, didn’t think I could do it, but I did. I’m staying in as I’m working this weekend. What are you up to? Mr.CBB

  7. Thanks for the mention! And quitting smoking is amazing thing!

  8. Thanks for the mention. Congrats on the tomatoes – we are in drought mode so most of what I see are tiny little red guys. Have a great weekend and week ahead!

  9. lol…I always buy my peppermint patties at the dollarama but it wasn’t me who searched that!

    Congrats on 7 months of quitting smoking! It’s hard work but well worth it! Keep up the great work with quitting smoking and the blog! :-)

    • Honestly I’ll admit I thought about you but only because I know I saw it in your grocery game post once. Thanks.. it was hard as you know, you went through it but we keep on going with motivation… Cheers Mr.CBB
