This week in investing and personal finance

by Natalie MacLellan on March 18, 2011

in Week in review

It’s that time again. Here’s what I have been reading this week and think you might want to check out too.

More and more people are filing their taxes online these days, and the Canadian Finance Blog has kindly reviewed two of the more popular tax filing software packages available to Canadians: UFile and TurboTax. Note there is also a UFile giveaway.

Changes in Canadian mortgage rules come into effect today, and the Get Smarter About Money Blog helps you decipher what these changes mean.

Money Smarts Blog gives you step by step instructions to open the safest, simplest and cheapest RESP account – and gives other RESP options as well.

In a thought provoking post, the Canadian Couch Potato tells us that “beating the market” is a relatively new idea.

Green Panda Treehouse gives great advice on how to moonlight your way to success.

Young and Thrifty tells us what yoga can teach you about personal finance.

Financial Highway reminds us that saving for retirement is our responsibility, and it starts now.

Boomer and Echo teaches us how to choose our retirement date.

And finally, it is Fraud Prevention Month, and Let’s Talk About Investing reminds us why we should be wary of investment seminars.

Thanks, and enjoy your weekend.
