Mr.CBB’s Weekly Blog Post Picks Dec 27,2012 – A Day Early

I’m a day early for the weekly blog post picks this week and that is because I have a special blog post planned for tomorrow. Don’t try and squeeze it out of me but I’ll tell you it’s one you won’t want to miss especially if 2013 is the year you want to make magic happen. Although many personal finance Bloggers took the week off from Blogging there were still plenty of excellent posts that ended up in my inbox. I thought I was the only one that was nutty enough not to take a day or three off but I guess I’m not. Now that Christmas and Boxing Day are over now is the time for us to plan our New Year’s Resolutions or at least goals for 2013. Last year we both quit smoking and we are still smoke-free today. I’m not sure what we will give up this year but I do know that either way giving up smoking was our all-time “want”  and “need” to do. Blog Post Picks Of The Week A big thanks goes out to these excellent Bloggers for sharing my page with their fans and taking the time out to drop in and […]

Mr.CBB’s Weekly Blog Post Picks Oct 26,2012

Each Friday I will Blog Mr.CBB’s Blog Post Picks of The Week. This may include posts and shares from Friday Previous up until Thursday the following week. I like to recognize those sites that genuinely enjoy the content of my blog and share it. I can’t believe it’s Friday already. It seems the more work I start doing outside and around the house the faster the week passes by. You can read what I’ve been up to each week at home and the blog each Saturday now with my new featured post “The Saturday Weekend Review“. Alternatively I would rather spend my time exploring the world with the lovely Mrs.CBB then cleaning the house. So,  unless I win this weekends Lotto MAX at $50 million, then that’s not likely to happen. This week has been a super busy week at the blog and as the blog grows so does the time it takes to get through all the emails and the social media mentions. I’m enjoying the new people I’m making friends with as I realize that learning from each other is more important to me than anything else. This week as you will see below I did plenty of  reading and commenting on […]

Mr.CBB’s Weekly Blog Post Picks October 12,2012

Mr.CBB’s Week in Review This week has been a relaxed but busy week for me as I finished putting up the Christmas lights. The only problem is that I am short around 6 feet so now I’m stuck looking for a 6-8 ft set that match. I went to Canadian Tire to check out their Christmas lights and nearly lost my gut when the sales woman told me 33 ft of the lights I needed cost $119.00. Are you bloody kidding me? I didn’t want to buy Christmas lights that are just getting put up on the shelves and have not even been in the flyer yet for sales. With my luck I’ll pay full price and it will go on sale the next week. That’s not so bad though as I could always return with the receipt for a product price adjustment but it’s just the time and gas that you have to factor in. I said to Mrs.CBB you watch if this last 6 ft of lights will cost me more than the 8 boxes or so that we got at end of season the past 2 years.  Gotta love it! I still haven’t finished the deck completely but the […]

Mr.CBB’s Weekly Blog Post Picks October 5, 2012

Mr.CBB’s Week in Review This week flew by to be honest and it felt like I spent more time outside of the home than I did inside. It was so nice out that I went for a few evening jogs and we also walked around to take in the breathtaking views of the Autumn Colours on the trees in our neighbourhood. I was speaking to me mum and dad in the UK yesterday and they asked me if the trees has started to turn. That is one thing they  miss about their first visit to Canada back a few years ago. Next time they visit they want to do the Agawa Canyon Tour up in Sault Ste Marie, Ontario. It’s a one day tour into the heart of Canadian Wilderness and we all want to check it out. Have you done this? I’ve pretty much put the garden to rest for the winter and now have around 12 plants to bring inside (even that pretty fern we rescued from the side of the road early in the spring). I don’t know about you but it gets depressing when I have to put everything away but I know that the snow is just […]

Mr.CBB’s Weekly Blog Post Picks September 28,2012

Mr.CBB’s Week in Review My weekly blog post picks have grown week by week and I’m thrilled to see many bloggers and advertisers interested in Canadian Budget Binder. I’ve worked a bit more lately at my real full-time job but continue to find the time to renovate the house, get ready for winter and work on this blog. I’ll be hanging the Christmas lights next week to prepare for the holiday season just so I don’t freeze my “John Thomas” and friends in the winter.  Happily the end of season sales last year has helped us to get enough LED lights for our entire home for dirt cheap. I guess it sounds like I’m a multi-tasker but really I’m not, I just plan my day well. On the flip side I went to see an allergy specialist the other day who performed routine environmental allergy testing on me. The doctor was a friendly bloke  who even gave me some “free” samples of nasal spray (I like this guy already). Needless to say I’m allergic to the outside world so I need to wear a space suit to garden, pick weeds, climb trees and rake leaves. Indoors I have to brush my teeth, wear cologne and […]

MR. CBB’s Weekly Blog Post Picks Sept 21,2012

Mr.CBB’s Week in Review Not too much happened here at the Canadian Budget Binder home this week as I’ve been working on projects and training for work. This only means that once I am actually finished this (hopefully by Monday) I can resume my normal Mr.CBB Honey-Do-List around the house. If you don’t already know today is officially the last day of summer which more to do around the house. I need to get my yard torn apart, put the summer furniture away, protect the deck with a nice coat of Thompson’s and the list goes on and on….. I have kept up with reading blog posts and trying to network to meet other Personal Finance bloggers to expand my circle of mates this week. I’d like to link up with 2-3 new bloggers a week so if you are reading this and we haven’t had the opportunity to chat… send me an email. How was your week? What’s Been Happening at Canadian Budget Binder It’s been buy here at Canadian Budget Binder on the blog especially with so many new readers, and I’m happy to say my Alexa finally made it under 100k! When I started the blog I was […]

Mr. CBB’s Weekly Blog Post Picks Sept 14,2012

Mr.CBB’s Week in Review Wow, did I read alot of blog posts this week in my spare time. (Ya, spare time) This week has been super busy for me training at work with new equipment and programs. I’m sure I will be doing this the rest of my life and I should for my line of work. Sometimes I wonder if people get too comfy in their jobs and no longer want to upgrade or keep above or at equal playing fields with those coming out of University and College or other colleagues. Many believe these young kids are going to come in and swoop positions in the company right from under the noses of those that have been with an organization many years. So for those that believe that education ends when you get your diploma you must ask yourself  “Will I evolve with the world” or “Will the world evolve around me”. You can be a specialist one day but if you don’t keep up with the “new” you may find that the “old” just doesn’t work any more. If you are out of work, laid off or terminated and you don’t have the upgraded skills you may be at […]

Mr.CBB’s Weekly Blog Post Picks July 27,2012

It’s Friday, time for Weekly Blog Post picks and that also means another week has come and gone for us. As the month draws to a close reflecting on the past days has made me realize how busy we get this time of year. July has been filled with lots of working days, mainly in and around the house and the garden for me. I know this time of year most people tend to be outdoors and super busy with summer family outings. This week I want to send a special Thank-You to all the blogs that take a minute out of their day to read my blog posts and link up to them. I take notice and am honoured that you showcase something I or a guest has poured their heart and energy into writing for every one of the fans. Taking a step out of the norm can be difficult especially when numbers mean more than the reason the online journey began, but not so much for me.  I think reason first, no sense trying to push the envelope over the cliff. The other day I had contacted a blog owner and asked them if they would be […]
