Mr.CBB’s Personal Finance Weekly Reading List #3 RRSP’s, NHL

Personal Finance Reading LIst

Today is probably one of the first days I’ve been able to wake up late and just lay in bed staring at the ceiling wondering what to tackle first. So far this week has been one heck of a rat race for me running from meeting to appointment to the grocery store to work and home. Have you ever had a week where you felt you were going non-stop? Well that was me this week.

On a good note, NHL Hockey Season is back (finally) for all you hockey fans although, I’m not one of them. I was mentioning to my mate Mark about Hockey and how I don’t understand it but ask me about rugby, basketball and soccer and I’m in.

We met with our financial advisor the other day and we really have some catching up as do many Canadians. I read an interesting post today on RRSP or Debt and how only 26 percent of eligible Canadians contribute to an RRSP.

What would you choose? Sometimes the choice is clear but others it’s not. Our choice was clear and I’ll get into that more in a later post about our retirement savings and plans for 2013.

  1. I think more Canadians should be learning about how the RRSP works and contribute if it makes sense for them. There are many reasons not to, but understanding why or why not is pretty important. Thanks for the mention :0)

  2. I know what you mean about the first weekend to relax. I usually work six days a week and am in the middle of a job transfer. So this weekend I have two days off, which I’m very excited about. Have a great rest of the weekend and thanks for including my post.

  3. I had that kind of week as well. First half was busy finishing up the packing, then Thursday it was time to move everything out of the house and yesterday was spent giving it a “professional” cleaning (by Antro Brothers Cleaning Service…in business since 2013!). I’ve got some down time right now, but at 10:30, it’s time to take down the satellite dish and take take the last of the stuff to the storage unit and rent the motel room that will be our home for the next two weeks.

  4. Nice looking list this week!! I`ve already had a look at a few of the blogs, all interesting. I can see where I have some reading to do this weekend!! Have a good weekend …..

  5. Thanks for the mention as always Mr. CBB! Don’t you just love those weeks? We seem to have too many of them lately. But, we’re having fun, so I generally don’t mind much. That debt vs. saving for retirement is a tough one. I tend to say debt first, but depends on each individual situation. Have a great weekend sir!

  6. Thanks for the mention Mr CBB! Enjoy sleeping late, this is a luxury I don’t know anymore since workers are showing up at 630am six days a week :s
