Canadian Budget Binder-Personal Finance Weekly Reading List #1

Personal Finance Reading LIst

This is Personal Finance Weekly Reading at it’s best brought to you by yours truly Mr. CBB. It’s the first days of the 2013 New Year and I’ve changed this post name in hopes of capturing fans to drop in and check out the amazing weekly reads that I find around the web. I read alot of personal finance articles and frugal recipe blogs every week who share everything from personal finance advice to making something delicious in the kitchen. Near the end of 2012 I started to branch out and network with other Bloggers around the web to learn more about the message they wanted to share. When I drop in to read a blog post and comment I do so because I learned something from that blog post and I know that my fans will as well.

I’ve also been learning alot about blogging and some of the mistakes I’ve made and some of the mistakes I’m glad I didn’t make. Learning how to blog is not as easy as I anticipated especially if you want to build a successful website but the more you learn about what happens behind the scenes the easier it becomes. I am glad I read blogging for dummies before going live as it was a stepping stone into a world that I am almost one year into and enjoying. If it helps keep you organized you can head over to my mate Sicorra’s page at Tackling Our Debt and download her free Blog Planner. She put this together to help other Bloggers stay organized. Canadian Budget Binder will be one year old at the end of January and with that comes a give-away so stay tuned for lots of updates and a new blog design!

This Blog was created with the mindset that Canadians and those around the world may want to learn how to get their financial health in order. I like to think that debt is debt, money is money no matter where you live. In 2013 I plan to make some new Blogger friends and continue to build relationships with my current Blogger friends who all know how appreciative I am to be part of their network. I’ll be posting this post every Friday and sharing with you a glimpse of some of the best finance and recipe posts that I read from around the web. With all this talk about the “Fiscal Cliff” and how it will attach itself to our rear ends I think that we should be proactive in our journey towards debt freedom, retirement and for some early retirement. I always refer back to the crystal ball and am proud that I just did what I felt was best for us. If 2013 is the year you want to make a difference to your finances take the step forward and claim your rights as an individual to understand and put your money to work for you. A budget is our success formula and will always be a part of our life and I hope you make it a part of yours. -Mr.CBB

    An example – if gross income including income tax is $150 and spending is $50, the spending rate is 33% / available to save is 66%. However, if income taxes are $10 in the above example, the spending rate becomes 36% / available to save is 64%. The latter seems more precise, at least to my mind.

  2. Canadian Performer's Money says:

    I don’t know how you find time to do so much reading and writing. I am happy if I manage to get a couple posts out a week. God bless you for trying to help so many people though!

    • I don’t have kids, I don’t really watch the tele and I just balance my time I guess. It works out for me but some days are harder than others. I’m working hard to bring the best and the brightest people to CBB to share their knowledge for the fans. That’s what this blog is about, not just me but what others can share. If you know anyone who is a professional or has vast experience on a related topic to CBB send them my way, especially anyone in the finance field! I’m always looking for excellent guest posts! CHeers Troy! Mr.CBB

    Well that ought to keep me busy for a bit! I bookmarked the recipe for Southern Chex Mix in a crockpot…I can have that as it’s gluten free. Thanks! 🙂

  11. Thanks for the mention. You are doing a great job with the site. At the end of the day, the only way to truly learn how to do something is by doing it.

  12. Thanks for including me this week Mr.CBB 🙂

  13. Wow, now that’s a reading list! Thanks for the mention and have a great weekend Mr. CBB!


  14. Thanks for including us in your list, Mr. CBB. Did you happen to catch our recipe for TVP Chili that I posted on Monday? It’s cheap, healthy and tasty, and had you in the back of my mind as I posted the recipe =)
    Have a great weekend!

  15. Hey mate, thanks for the mention & comment on my post. Looking forward to 2013 with Mr.CBB!

  18. Living Debt Free Rocks! says:

    It’s great that you’ve made almost a year in blogging and that you’ve done so well. Thanks for the mention and have a good week-end!

    • Hey! I never know what well means but if you mean that I’m still blogging well then ya I made it but it wasn’t easy. I’ve learned lots along the way and learn something new everyday. Here’s hoping 2013 is an even better year for CBB! Cheers Mr.CBB

  19. Thanks for the mention, your blog is awesome.

  20. I love Sicorra’s free blogging resources and I am so glad to see her planner mentioned here. Happy New Year, Mr. CBB. I continue eagerly to await the unveiling of your new site design.

  21. Thanks for the mention Mr. CBB!

    The boy had his LASIK eye surgery today, and before I went to pick up his eye drops, I thought of you, so I googled the recommended eye drops he needed, and poof, got myself a $4 off coupon! 🙂

    Have a great weekend!

  22. Thanks for the mention. Looking forward to your first blog anniversary plans and new design. Lots of people think they can put off financial education until later, but unlike getting their ears pierced, money management is an ongoing process and the earlier they start the better off they’ll be later.

    • That’s true the earlier the better but then I say anytime is better than never. I’m looking forward to the new site as well as the one year anniversary. It’s not going to be explosive as I’ve not made any money to give away big prizes yet but a couple blogs and and website have come forward to offer some prizes.

  23. Thank you for the mention Mr CBB! You have done great for yourself in one short year, keep it up!

  24. Thanks for including me and happy early anniversary! When can we expect the new design to launch?

    • Hey… I’m hoping by the end of January. That is the idea. I don’t have anything major planned as I’m not one to ask people to participate in giveaways although if they want to that would be lovely. I do have a few sites that have come forward and want in on the action so it should be good times for the blog and the fans! Cheers mate.

  25. Thanks as always for the mention Mr. CBB! Congrats on the impending year anniversary of your blog. I am looking forward to where year #2 takes you. Great thoughts and finances and handling your money, I could not agree more. I was honestly embarrassed this week to be an American and see our do nothing Congress “solve” a problem they created only to put it off for another two months. Lesson to be learned…don’t wait on your personal finances! Start taking action now, even if it’s in small steps. Ok, I am removing myself from the soapbox. 🙂 Have a great weekend sir!

  26. Thanks for the mention Mr. CBB! I really appreciate it and and can’t wait to see what you provide each and every Friday. I am also eager to see what you plan on doing with the blog in 2013. Good luck with everything.

  27. Thanks for the blog mention! I can’t wait to see the new blog design! Have a great weekend!
