Weekend Reading – TFSA audits, Top 50 sites, DRIP myths and more
2014 Weekend Reading material is winding down folks…hard to believe it’s mid-December…
In case you missed it this week I boldly shared our financial progress here and I thought of some insurance everyone needs to consider.
How’s the holiday shopping coming along folks? Done? Almost done? Not even started yet? I got a few things to pick up but that’s about it. The internet has certainly been a game-changer for holiday shopping, in our house it has.
Onto the articles!
LSM Insurance released the Top 50 Canadian Personal Finance websites. Thanks for the mention!
I enjoyed Justin Bender’s post about DRIP myths. I have a very comprehensive set of DRIP information here:
Boomer & Echo wondered what your financial goals for next year are.
Canadian MoneySaver shared some costly financial mistakes to avoid.
I enjoyed this cast of finance characters found on Twitter. I think I’m most of these.
Over at Mr. Money Mustache, a complainypants sought financial redemption. A good read as MMM helped a reader understand “there’s even more wealth on tap as soon as you activate a bit of Mustachian frugality.” I suspect this is a plug for a future MMM book.
Modest Money reviewed this new money book.
Last but not least, if you’re looking for any Christmas gift ideas to improve your or someone else’s financial health in 2015, look no further than these excellent (and inexpensive) reads from my Books page:
Stop Over-Thinking Your Money! – Preet Banerjee
Millionaire Teacher – Andrew Hallam
Wealthing Like Rabbits – Robert Brown
The Value of Simple – John Robertson
Happy shopping, good luck and see you here next week!
Thanks for the book list!
Happy to support John!
I haven’t even started shopping yet. Each year I swear I wont wait… and I wait.
Couple books I havent seen before you listed. Thanks for that I’ll take a look at them
I’ve done most of it…but we have time! Thanks for reading and good luck with the shopping.
Thanks for the mention, Mark – have a great weekend!
Same to you, all the best Justin!
Great list of articles, The DRIP Myth is an interesting read. Thanks for sharing. Have a good weekend Mark.
Yes, I enjoyed Justin’s article although DRIPs really work for me. They help me stick to my gameplan.
I was shocked to find I was even on the top 50 list. I can barely even spell SEO. Thanks for the mention.
You make me laugh. Enjoy the weekend!
Thanks for the inclusion this week Mark, hard to believe the year is almost over. Time to start planning another year financially.
Yes, it is time to start…2015 is coming very fast…. Take care!
Good stuff, thanks for the reading material 🙂
Im also pretty curious how they are going to go about with the TFSA decision. I mentioned it briefly at the end in a TFSA review article I made, going to have to keep an eye on the outcome of it all.
Have a relaxing weekend.
Thanks Wisp! All the best and stay in touch!
Thanks for the mention, Mark. You know how I feel about a TFSA audit. If a business is being run in a TFSA that would mean business losses, deductions, etc are also fair game – and I don’t think they want to go down that path
I would think it’s a very slippery slope!
Not sure if my first comment went through?
Just wanted to say thanks for sharing! Hope you have a great weekend. 🙂
Got it! You’re definitely not spam. All the best 🙂
Thanks for sharing the article!
Hope you have a great weekend over there. 🙂
Thanks for the mention, Mark. Great set of links…definitely adding them to my reading list for the weekend
Enjoy the weekend R2R.
Thanks for the mention Mark. Flattering to see WLR in such good company!
Happy to add your book to the Christmas Wish List Rob.
