This week in investing and personal finance

by Natalie MacLellan on December 3, 2010

in In the News, Week in review, holiday savings and RESPs were the top themes online this week it seems. With a few other topics thrown in for good measure. Read on for your list of recommended weekend reads.

Miranda at Financial Highway starts us off with tips on how to save money on holiday decorating.

Jonathan Chevreau at the Wealthy Boomer presents as Help for those without a plan.

For those wondering about the training your adviser has taken, or what is required to get into the industry, Mike Holman at Money Smarts Blog does a great job describing Canadian financial adviser qualifications and courses.

At Money 2.0, on the Get Smarter About Money blog, read about moving beyond RESPs – additional ways to save for a child’s education.

Tired of paying others to do what you could do yourself with just a little training? Frugal Dad provides fatherly tips on how to become more self-sufficient.

Gail Vaz-Oxlade has started another blog series – this time a glossary, the ABCs of Money. I was planning to do something similar here in the new year. I’ll keep watching for her updates and decide whether I have more to add or not.

And last but certainly not least, 2 Cents at Balance Junkie gives a unique perspective on financial markets in Lucy and the Charlie Brown market.

Thanks are due this week to the Canadian Finance Blog who included our post on inflation in the Canadian Finance Carnival #12, and to Investing Thesis for including links to two of last week’s articles: inflation and managing inflation, in the 10th edition of the Canadian Personal Finance & Investing Carnival.

See you next week.
