This week in investing and personal finance

by Natalie MacLellan on October 1, 2010

in Week in review

It’s the end of the week (and the month) and as such, I am here with another weekly roundup of my favourite investing and personal finance blog posts.

But first, it is the first day of October, which is also the first day of Investor Education Month in Canada. With that in mind, I would like to point you to a recently launched website called Money Index, which is an aggregate of top personal finance blogs and columns. We will add it to our links list on the right hand column, and hope you find it a useful resource. (For your convenience: you can find us listed on the Canada page.)

And now, the weekly roundup.

Kate McCaffrey at WalletPop Canada discusses the results of the the 10th annual TD Waterhouse Female Investor Poll in Why Mom Didn’t Teach Us ABout Investing.

At Invest it Wisely, Greg MacFarlane examines the ins and outs of mortgage refinancing in If You Enjoy Financial Obligations, Don’t Read This.

The Canadian Finance Blog offers 22 tips on How to Avoid Personal Financial Disaster – always good to know!

Gail Vaz-Oxlade, at Making Money Make Sense, discusses her own experience with Registered Education Savings Plans in RESP Surprises.

2 Cents, at Balanace Junkie looks at replacing a hot water heater in Hot Water Heater: Rent or Own?

And finally, if you will forgive a link to another group of links, The new Canadian Personal Finance & Investing Carnival has been posted at Investing Thesis.

Thanks, and enjoy your weekend.
