in Week in review

There’s lots of great reading for you this week. But first, let me remind you that today is the last day to enter our Invest in Education contest. Get your entries in – you might just win a Kindle!

On with the roundup:

Balance Junkie discusses “collateral” or “mouse trap” mortgages in Mixed Messages from TD Bank. (An interesting read – we’d love to know your thoughts on it.)

Mike Holman at Money Smarts has put together a helpful Canadian Online Discount Stock Brokerage Comparison.

Henry Truc at Financial Highway discusses the various ways to teach your kids responsibility with allowances.

Allison Griffiths at Moneyvillle ensures readers that when it comes to investing, there are no stupid questions, in Investor I.Q. training tip #3.

Jim Yih at Wealth Web Gurus poses, and then thoughtfully answers some popular estate planning questions.

Mr. Money at Smart on Money encourages readers to Take A Personal Day To Fix Your Finances.

And, always a favourite, Gail Vaz-Oxlade discusses couples’ money issues in Inequities in Income.

Thanks are due this week to Wealth Web Gurus for including our Three Rs of Investing post in their Best of the Blogs Halloween reading.

Last but not least, congratulations to Rhia Perkins who was this week’s winner of the Invest in Education contest.
