Welcome to some fine Weekend Reading folks, some of the best articles from the personal finance blogopshere right here. First though, earlier this week I provided some newbie investors with some recent books to check out and I posted our February 2015 dividend income update, our journey to financial independence.
Spring seems to have finally sprung, a bit, in Ottawa and surely warmer weather is coming. This means golf, gardening, lawn care and cold beer on the deck seasons for me. Any big plans for spring good reader? Leave me a comment and tell me about them. All the best to you and see you here again next week.
I liked Tom Bradley’s article about debt impacts here. I hope to provide a take on this soon.

I think Michael James on Money put things into proper perspective when he says to consider inflation when it comes to annuities (this applies nicely to all forms of income and investments – inflation is a silent portfolio killer).

Good one. All the best Alan.
Thanks for the mention, Ive done so many tax returns lately I feel like I will be dreaming of T1s tonight!
Ha! Well, we only had our two returns to deal with. Take care!
I see so many people make poor choices that could have been avoided if they understood inflation better. Thanks for the mention.
You have educated yourself thoroughly in all things money management Michael. Most people don’t even scratch the surface. Have a great weekend.
Thanks for the mention Mark! As always great list of articles.
It’s always warm here in Vancouver. I think it was around 15C this afternoon.
15C? #mustbenice All the best.
Thanks for the mention! Yes reading the fine print is a must, don’t sign your life away without reading the terms =D
I try to avoid that at all costs Barry 🙂 Have a great weekend.
