Mr.CBB’s Weekly Blog Post Picks-Nov 23,2012 Shop Til You Drop!

Mr.CBB's Weekly Blog Post Picks

This is a week of many Thanks and lots of Black Friday Shopping for the masses in the USA and Canada. We had our first Black Friday excursion yesterday although it was more to pick up dog food and a bag of bird feed.  Once inside TSC store we were nearly trampled on by hungry deal shoppers who lined up well before 6 am the cashier told us. She also went on to say they sold out of many items right away and that this particular day each year they will do one weeks worth of sales. I was in awe but not shocked after seeing so many customers with their shopping trolleys filled to the top, some pulling two carts ( I know). Hey if shopping is what you have to do to get the best deals and best prices then head out and shop til you drop!

Mr.CBB’s Top “whatever I want” Blog Post Picks of the Week

I know I said it would be the Top 20 but I realized I truly read alot of blog posts each week. All these lovely Bloggers read my Blog and link their favourite posts for their fans that it was so hard. Keep in mind this is only a snap shot of the Blogs I read so there are many more amazing posts. If I don’t mention you it doesn’t mean I’m not reading your posts and enjoying them.

So I realized that I’m going to do what I want (after all it’s my blog) and if one week there is 10 there is 10 if there is 20 there is 20. What matters is that I bring the best for my fans and that’s what I do, help to educate my fans about personal finance and more. As I continue to reach out to other Blogs that are new to me I will start to add them to my list. As always thanks to all of you who share my posts with your fans.

  2. Hey mate, sorry it’s a bit late but thanks for the mention! Been away for a few days, hope you had a good weekend.

  3. Thanks for the reshare on Humility! I’m impressed with how many blog posts you refer each week–if these are your favorites I can’t imagine how many you are reading that you are pulling from!

  4. Thanks for the mention! I am humbled to be included with such stellar posts. Have a great weekend!

  5. Wow, that’s lots of link love Mr. CBB. I really, really appreciate it. I usually add until I run out of time, and my list is never as long as some. There are just too many good ones out there. Your pets should really thank you for venturing out today.

  6. Thanks for the love Mr. CBB! Have a great weekend!

  7. Thanks for the mention Mr. CBB. I appreciate it and I am glad that you survived Black Friday. Enjoy your weekend and thanks for the list of good reads, it is massive!

  8. Thanks again Sir, much appreciated 🙂 I should know by now not to read this list until I’m prepared to start at some yummy food picture…alas, you have me wanting cake.

  9. Thank you kindly for the inclusion, sir! What is in a barley sandwich? A decent-sized hangover the next day, if you’re doing it right 😉

  10. Thanks for the mention Mr. CBB! That’s definitely some list you have going. 🙂

    Oh, I meant to ask; how was the movie? Is it worth seeing? 😛

    Have a good weekend!

  11. That whole black Friday thing sounds nuts! I hate shopping at the best of times so there is no way I would want to me amongst that size of crowd.

    Thanks for including me in your round up – Have a good weekend 🙂

  12. Wow, heckuva reading list. Thanks for the mention. That cake made me hungry. Going to eat now, a barley sandwich 🙂


  13. Thanks for the shout out Mr CBB, you are very brave to go fight the masses on a shopping war! I went once to the first day of sales in London together with 1 million people (felt like 80 millions) this is some experience I am not looking forward to repeating!

  14. Haha…what a sacrifice to feed the pets! Sorry you had to go through that. We didn’t do Black Friday this year. Too much stress and there weren’t any awesome sales on things we really wanted. At least not advertised.

    Thank you so much for the mention/link! Hope the rest of your consumerism weekend goes well. :p

  15. Great list as always Mr CBB, and thank you for the mention. 🙂 You’re quite right; it is your blog, and therefore your choice. If I had to choose from all the many posts I read each week I wouldn’t know where to begin!

    • Ya, I comment o so many posts each week and I do share on FB some of these posts. I just want to bring the knowledge to the fans. That’s what I’m here for, to help. I’m also exposing the fans to all these bloggers which I always appreciate as I always learn of new sites that I end up following and enjoy the writing style.

    Thanks so much for the mentions Mr. CBB! I like your attitude about links. I never can determine how many I want to do, so I just do what I think are the best. That cake looks mighty tasty, I think I would have to find a way to get it down even though I am still in a wee bit of a food coma.

    • Ha, I bet, I’m starving right now I can eat just about anything. The cake was dead easy to make and I make it when I want something light and fluffy.. no pun intended! Cheers mate and glad your holiday was filling! Mr.CBB

  17. Living Debt Free Rocks! says:

    I had the same debate concerning link love because some weeks there are just many more posts that are too good to not mention than other weeks. I arrived at the exact same conclusion lol! Thanks for the mention this week Mr. CBB and enjoy the week-end 🙂
