Welcome to my latest Weekend Reading edition where you can find some great personal finance and investing articles to save, invest and prosper.
It was a busy week on the site…I managed to pump out these three posts:
I initiated yet another giveaway on my site – The Practical Guide to Financial Independence. Enter for your chance to win one of three books as part of this giveaway.
I wrote about how I’ve tried to curb some of my investing behaviour gaps.
I discussed one of the big reasons why I try and max out my Tax Free Savings Account (TFSA) before other accounts here.
Thanks for reading and supporting the brand – I enjoy reading every comment on the site. Have a great weekend and share this site with a friend!

Canadians seems slow to automate their financial life. That’s too bad because that’s one of the great ways you can accelerate debt payments and wealth creation – by taking emotions out of money decisions. That was my input into ModernAdvisor’s blogpost here.
Thanks to Finance Blog Zone for listing my site as a top blog – and Big Cajun Man for reading it!
BCE increased their dividend by 5% this week. That was a nice raise.
