img_2720Funny enough, this morning I am staying home with kids this morning while my wife has her first exam… and I thought I was done with school! hahaha! She just started a certification in psychology (I hope she won’t try to understand me!).

I had 2 company annual meeting this week. Last weekend was my day at the spa paid my own company and we spent the last 2 days in a hotel in Montreal Downtown for my employer’s annual meeting. No need to say which one I preferred πŸ˜‰

I still weight 180 lbs…I even changed my training program and I now go 4 times a week but for 75 minutes each time. I hope to see some results before Xmas!

So here are some good read:

I have found an interesting credit card website for Canadians: Best Canadian Credit Card Finder. While the site is not completely done yet, they are updating their credit card review on a weekly basis and also provide good articles. For example, they had an interesting article about exchanging traveling points without hassles (any Air Miles or Aeroplan fans over here?).

On the other side, Debt Free Adventure is advocating on credit card rewards… I am a big fan of using my credit card to earn points. In fact, I spend everything with my credit cards. I even sometimes don’t even have money on me! Those plastic cards are amazing πŸ˜€

Jim at Bargaineering is discussing money vice… Mine is definitely good food… and nice clothes…. and electronics goodies… and vacation…. and… oh my… I am a walking money vice! hahaha!

We hired a very talented writer over The Credit Toolbox. He was a previous colleague of mine and he is now writing 2 posts a week on our other blog. Checkout is introduction with In the beginning. He will share his view on credit and how he handles it.

Cash Money Life explains how to avoid conflicts with supervisor…Β  The best trick is definitely to avoid gossip with other colleagues. We all have a rat on our floor and the worst thing to do is to talk in other people’s back at work!

Being Frugal wonders if you can have a nice Xmas without money… When I was a kid, my parents didn’t have much money. In fact, they had to borrow money to buy the turkey at Christmas. However, we always had a lot of fun. Christmas is not about gifts, it’s about spending good times with people you love!

Thinking about putting money aside for Christmas? Prime Time offers 15 ways to cut in your budget! Dinning out is definitely the place where I can save a lot of money! Probably enough to buy a Wii for my kids πŸ˜‰
