Mr.CBB’s Saturday Weekend Review
It’s been a lovely few days holiday for me so this Saturday Weekend Review will only tell you that I finished sealing the columns on the porch so another job,jobbed. Other than that I hung out with the Mrs. and managed to convince her that Monday was the best day to go to Twilight Breaking Dawn. I’ve already heard opening night in our city was a mad house. So if you find I am MIA come Monday evening you know where I am.
If you read my Blog Post Picks yesterday you would have read about our trip to IKEA a few days back. Although last week I was telling you I was tearing up the bathroom for a remodel we decided there was nothing at IKEA that suits our style. We did however pick out our kitchen and it will look something like this IKEA Kitchen picture which I found at model kitchen pictures. Our kitchen won’t be identical in layout and accessories and there is more to the kitchen off to the back as well, pull out cabinets, built-in microwave. We will put in a pot filler behind the stove. We don’t need the double ovens although Mrs. CBB says that in our next house it’s a MUST as we both enjoy cooking. Our current kitchen doesn’t call for this upgrade nor do we have the space.
Lots to do.. but check out this site if you are looking for model kitchen photos. Lots to do and we better start saving the cash as kitchens no matter where you get them don’t come cheap! Do you have an IKEA Kitchen and what do you think?
What’s Been Happening at Canadian Budget Binder
This week at Canadian Budget Binder we hit a milestone the 100k milestone.. Back in January, end of January 2012 actually when I started this blog I never dreamed that in 10 short months we would hit over 100,000 views. I remember when I thought, crikey someone’s read something on the blog or look a search term. Now I get hundreds of searches each day and have fans emailing me telling me how much I have motivated or helped them.
I’m humbled and probably would never have known unless they had emailed me or posted on my Facebook wall. When I hear those words it makes me happy that someone has made a change for the better in their life and the recognize that it’s a good thing. I’m happy to hear many fans are benefiting from not only my posts but those of my guest posters, and of other PF Bloggers posts I share via social media and the blog. I don’t believe one person has all the answers I believe we all learn from each others experiences whether personal or professional.
I hope Canadian Budget Binder continues to grow and that we branch out to learn more and share more with each other. Canadian Budget Binder is about a journey of 2 people, a journey that encompasses not only finance but that of a thing called life.

Ok, well if you have I want to hear all about it! What will they do design it with big trucks, police cars, fire trucks or wildlife on the outside to differentiate between the male and female coupon binder? Honestly, IF I actually carried a coupon binder I wouldn’t give a rats arse what it looked like. I did however see a man with a coupon binder last week, looked more like a day book (nice disguise)
