Financial Ramblings – I’m not There Edition

I am actually writing this financial ramblings in advance as I am returning from my frugal vacation on May 30th. Then, I figured I would not have enough time (and energy!) to write a post upon my arrival. So I wish I had good weather and a great time with my family 😀

Summer is going to be a rough financial time for our family as my wife maternity leaves allocations end in June but she only starts working the last week of August. We wanted her to spend summer with our two kids before she goes back to work. Let just say that it’s a good thing that our company is creating an alternative source of income!

I hope that you enjoyed our guest writers last week and I want to thank them for responding so quickly to my request. So a big thank you to Frugal Trader at, to Jonathan at, to Mike (my Canadian English alter-ego in Toronto!) from and my best friend, Pete, partner in M-35.

I find that the temptation of spending money over summer time is always greater. It’s warm and sunny and you always feel like doing something or eating out. I honestly don’t have any tricks to stop my wallet popping out of my pocket so if you do, please help me 😀 In the meantime, I’ll go buy ice cream… I’ll be right back!

Well that was not much for today, but I really feel that I am off today :-D. I swear I will be back with a great post next Monday!
