MR.CBB’s Weekly Blog Post Picks August 17,2012

Mr.CBB’s Week in Review Well it’s been another one of those weeks in the summer where what you want to get done, doesn’t always happen. There has been so much rain in Ontario I was starting to think I was in the UK where rain is like Tim Horton’s Coffee- always readily available. This week I finished off the front entry door although I do have a bit more touch up painting to do. It took a bit longer than expected because of the rain and the on/off of the door due to painting. We are happy with the way it looks and are happy we held out until we found a great deal on the insert and door that we wanted. I’m not sure if I want to do it again although my neighbour casually mentioned he was thinking about changing his door. Lastly, we picked (or should I say ‘I”) picked the apples this week from the tree with Mrs. CBB down below. I’ll admit it was fun shaking the tree and watching the apples pop her off the top of the head ha… Ah come on it was fun.. just small little crab apples. I’m sure she […]

Mr.CBB’s Weekly Blog Post Picks July 6,2012

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 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 […]
