Mr.CBB’s Weekly Blog Post Picks~Oct 19,2012

Top Blog Picks Of The Week

This week I’ve started something new as I found my Friday Blog Post Picks of The Week was getting far too big. I really want the Bloggers that I am recognizing to notice as I feel many are not seeing because the post is too big. All of you that share Canadian Budget Binder Blog Posts are a huge part of the success and I want you to know how thankful I am. I might not get a chance to say thanks to everyone every week so thanks for all the continued support. If at any time I miss recognizing you please let me know. I make mistakes like everyone else but I do like to know if I’ve failed to recognize someone.

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
