Mr.CBB’s Weekly Blog Post Picks Friday July 13, 2012

Friday the 13th Weekly Blog Picks…..are you superstitious? What a week it’s been for me, busy and our volunteer services for the summer has begun. My landscaping materials were delayed due to truck malfunction and route delay. The company is promising me it will be in by next week once the truck catches up with the delivery. I think it’s a bunch of phooey (is that a word) but ah well, they are the best in the area and I had to custom order our front steps for the house. In the meantime since I am on holidays and didn’t want to waste my time waiting for my landscaping materials I got on with painting. The primed doors in the house have never been painted and are still the same as the builder put them in. As soon as the first coat of paint went on you could see the difference paint can easily make for a small price. I also added new hardware to jazz them up and they sure look 100% better. Well that’s been my week along with some great blog posts I’ve written along with a few excellent guest posts submitted at Canadian Budget Binder….. Here’s what I […]

My weekly blog picks might be slim this week as it’s been a hectic week for me with Canada Day and Landscaping the yard. I’ll admit I haven’t gotten so far with the yard but I promise you that once the materials get dropped off I will be a hot n sweaty bloke for days on end. So far my vacation has been good with visiting the relatives for Canada Day to hanging out with Mrs.CBB doing some of the fun things we like to do such as hiking,making olive bread, walks in the evening and hanging out with our friends. Picture: Making Olive Bread- recipe to follow on Blog! This week I was able to get in a few good reads from the blogs that I follow.  I hope you all get a chance to check these awesome blogs out.

Mr.CBB’s Weekly Blog Post Picks June 22, 2012

What a week it has been in Ontario! We welcomed summer with a bang proving these next few months will be fun in the sun! When Mrs. CBB gets the blender out I know it’s party time at the CBB home! We made our first blender drink this week Vanilla Raspberry Banana Smoothie. Devouring one of these drinks on a hot day psychologically makes me feel like I’m on vacation sun,sand and beach. As you may know I like my summertime beer however Mrs. CBB has dragged me into her blender drink circle from the first time she made me one. I’m a blender drink believer.. no I didn’t say belieber. So if you like blender drinks.. I have more where these came from! Ok.. on to my blog picks. MR. CBB’s Vanilla Raspberry Banana Smoothie 2 cups frozen raspberries ( if you use fresh add 2 cups of ice cubes) 1 cup Liberte Greek Yogurt 0% fat 1/2 cup skim milk 1 frozen or fresh banana 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract 100% pure Put it all in the blender and pulse until mixed! Pour into any fancy glass, add a straw and some Mint for a splash of WOW! Enjoy! P.S […]

Mr.CBB’s Weekly Blog Post Picks June 8, 2012

It’s the end of the week already, wow how time passes by when you are having fun.  Since I started this blog I have been fortunate to have networked with so many amazing bloggers from all over the world.  You will find me featuring their posts on my Facebook page or you will find me Tweeting to my loyal followers. I’ve underestimated the power of networking and the fans around that world that want to learn and read about money and finance. Perhaps this is why it is so important for me to learn just like my fans do. A great man in my life once said to me “never stop learning, when you do you’ve given up”. That great man was my grandfather. I’m always thrilled to showcase the vast amounts of knowledge my guest posters bring to the table. I feel without guest posts a blog can redundant so it’s great to kick it up  a notch from time to time. I am also thrilled to be able to write for websites who want me to share my experiences and expertise with their fans.  You can read the guest posts I’ve written thus far here. I’m hoping to […]

Mr.CBB’s Blog Post Picks Of The Week~May 19-25,2012

By: Mr.CBB I’m back again with my second blog post picks post (say that 10 times). What a week it’s been for Canadian Budget Binder. We surpassed 25,000 blog views and have a wonderful 1500 Facebook Fans whom are a great team to talk to every day. My Twitter Followers have been growing slowly but that’s ok, we all have to start somewhere. My followers keep me up to date with the latest and greatest which I enjoy reading and re-tweeting.  I was also surprised to get nominated for another blogger award called the Kreativ Blog Award by my mate Dennis at What To Cook? Thanks again Dennis! When I started this blog it was merely to see if anyone out there wanted to listen about how we save money and stay out of debt. What I wasn’t prepared for were the vast amounts of not only Canadians but diverse cultures all over the world looking for advice, tips and answers to their questions.  I’ve met and teamed up with some amazing bloggers and fans that motivate me to keep doing what I do. To all of you, I thank you for taking a small blog like Canadian Budget Binder into […]
