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 another means to keeping me busy, just not with the rake.

This weekend is Thanksgiving Weekend and we are heading up to the relatives for the “eating” festivities.

We enjoy getting together with out family and we don’t do it often enough.

Next year we plan to do more travelling even the short distances because life is short and you never know when life will end.

We also plan to make a trip back to the UK to see my family as it’s long overdue.  

To my American Fans Happy Columbus Day! To My Canadian Fans enjoy your Thanksgiving weekend and many blessings to you and your family.

What’s Been Happening at Canadian Budget Binder

This week was all about end of month budget and Net Worth Updates here at CBB. It’s actually my favourite time of month because I get to see how well we did financially simply by sticking to our budget. I can’t force anyone to budget that’s for sure but I can show others what it can do for them if they take the time to want to learn.

I’ve had many fans who have made some life changes with their finances. I can’t wait to share one fans triumphs simply by starting to budget and sticking to it. Keep an eye out for that awesome fan post!

This week I also wrote a guest post which I like to do at least once a month for blogs that I follow and take an interest in. If you ever want to guest post for me, than send me an email. I always love to hear stories from other Bloggers who want to share with my fans.

This month I wrote a blog post titled “The Evolution Of Our Budget” which really highlights where we started and where we are today.

A budget is a never-ending book that needs to be read over and over. It’s not a book you read once then put away.

You need to make changes to the chapters and hope that the ending is what you set out to achieve when you lay out your yearly goals.

 Please take a moment to read this post and I hope that it helps you to see where we as a couple are heading with our budget.

  1. How exciting to have snow! Where I live it never snows 🙁 In fact its just turned spring so I’m getting out in the garden making sure my herbs and veggies are getting cracking.

    On a side note – Some of those search terms are hilarious!

    1. I’ll trade ya! Where do you live mate? Snow used to be exciting but not so much any more! There is no snow here at the moment, it’s Fall, the leaves are tumbling to the ground and beautiful colours surround us. Cheers and enjoy.. ya love those search terms.

        1. It’s awesome here mate, I’ll never move back although Mrs.CBB has her EU citizenship… so we could but Nah… life is too good and I just finished school and have a decent job. Friends of ours moved here a couple years ago and love it. I also have a couple mates who moved over married Canadian girls. Where would you want to move here?

        1. Me mum would move here in a heartbeat but my dad he’s set in his ways. Me and mum are well travelled so it doesn’t bother us to be away. I don’t travel much now that I am here. That’s what I miss the most but it costs so much to travel now. Mr.CBB

  2. Thanks so much for the mention! I agree with you all the way that budgets are something that are constantly evolving and have to be periodically reevaluated. We’re in the process of looking at ours right now.

  3. Thank you so much for adding me!! {FYI the hyperlink you have is for’m now self host ( A friend of mine lost 2 years worth of blogging last week with .com so I decided not to mess around anymore!} Have a Great Thanksgiving!!

  4. Happy Thanksgiving!!! I’ll be cooking a turkey here so I’ll be getting out some cranberries for the sauce and bits and pieces of bread from the freezer for the dressing. I have a bunch of plants in the enclosed front porch right now. The ones I want to keep over the winter will likely end up in the basement, I’ve some geraniums I’ve had for a few years that get by there. I had the truck at the shop today having the winter tires put on and checking things over for the winter. When the boys put the all seasons in the garage they put the garden tools in too and got out the snow shovels….. just in case. That nasty 4 letter ‘S’ word has been heard in long range forecasts so best be prepared……I’m not looking forward to driving in that nasty white stuff but I do know how to handle it. Living in the snow-belt you learn ……..we’re subject to the lake effect here and it can be scarey!!! Drive safe on your travels!!!!

    1. Hi Christine,
      Sounds like you will be a busy lady this weekend. We have no snow here in Ontario yet (fingers crossed) it’s been lovely out every day with the odd bit of rain. It’s getting cooler at night now but that’s ok. I dread the winter as well but I don’t mind it all that much, just the shovelling has lost it’s WOW factor since I moved here lol. Well enjoy your holidays darling and we shall chat soon. Cheers Christine.. Mr.CBB!!!

    1. Cheers mate! This post is actually the one post that takes the most time to put together. That’s why I really want to focus on bloggers that have content that is relevant to CBB and all of my fans who I love to share with especially on Facebook. I also want to know they love what I put out as well. Cheers and enjoy your weekend.. Turkey here I come! Mr.CBB

  5. And a very Happy Thanksgiving to you and Mrs CBB too! Remember to take your camera…those pic’s will become priceless when someone is missing from the group. Drive safely!

  6. Thanks for the mention Mr. CBB! I hope that you have a great time with the family and a wonderful Thanksgiving. It looks like you might have missed that I included you in my roundup this week. No big deal, just wanted to make sure you know that the love was shared for you over on Frugal Rules. Love the search results too, always good for a laugh.

    1. Hey John!!
      If you were talking about today’s post it will end up on next Fridays post. I’m sometime a week behind since I try to have all my links ready to go by Friday.. if that makes sense. On occasion I toss one in if I’m working on it and I see it come in and I still haven’t seen the ping from your post which is odd. I commented on it and it’s sitting in the post for next week already to rock and roll mate. Cheers for dropping in.. Happy Columbus Weekend!! Mr.CBB 🙂
