Welcome to some Weekend Reading friends. I was in Fort Lauderdale, Florida recently for a few days enjoying some sun, sand, golf and downtime – so I missed a Weekend Reading update last Friday. Thanks to my friends for making it another fun trip.
What are your upcoming travel plans? Got any destinations in mind?
Over at Canadian Budget Binder, I provided a post about how to ditch your pricey mutual funds. Earlier in the week, Grant, a reader of this site, shared his rationale for index investing and why this approach works for the majority of investors – and why it can work for you as well. Also this week, I shared some tips to spend your tax refund wisely.
On a more somber note, our cat’s health continues to fail and I believe my wife and I will have to make a decision about her fate rather soon. Some days have been better than others in recent weeks but we know her liver and other organs are failing. We want to do what is best for her. We don’t want to see her struggle or labour around the house, only to make ourselves feel better that she’s still with us. The house will feel very empty without her but we’ll do what is right. Times like these are tough. It’s very sad to know the end is near for her. We love our cat and we’re going to miss her dearly.
Thanks for reading.
