This week in investing and personal finance

in Week in review

Yesterday was Thanksgiving in the United States, making today Black Friday: the biggest shopping day of the year south of the border.

I’ll start this week’s roundup of blog posts with two differing opinions on the Black Friday madness:

Alan Schram at the Canadian Finance Blog advises us how to take advantage of American Black Friday deals. Meanwhile, the Canadian Personal Finance Blog (note the difference) asks Why Black Friday?

After posting two articles this week about inflation, I thought you might be interested in Money Energy’s post on the difference between deflation and disinflation.

Financial Highway shares tips for cutting costs associated with newborn babies, to help out new parents. Gail Vaz-Oxlade encourages parents of older children to teach their teenagers about money.

At Get Smarter About Money, Money 2.0 looks at how to use RRSPs and TFSAs to complement one another.

And finally, the Money Smarts blog provides a good description of the T2033 – or transfer of funds from one RRSP to another, at a different institution.
