Here are my posts for this week:
A Saver’s View of RRSP and TFSA Room
Here are some short takes and some weekend reading:
Daniel Solin has some clear explanations of what drives people to make poor investing decisions. I can definitely see my younger self in many of the bad choices driven by psychology that he describes.
Gail Vaz-Oxlade has some sensible things to say about reward credit cards. Her reasonable advice contrasts sharply with the barrage of breathless blog posts about the latest and greatest reward cards from bloggers who make commissions from getting people to sign up for new cards.
Canadian Couch Potato takes a look at iShares’ core ETFs and gives an interesting explanation of why two seemingly very similar ETFs have different MERs.
Million Dollar Journey lays out his plans to build a portfolio to fully cover his living expenses. I’m in this process as well.
Big Cajun Man explains the difference between disability insurance and critical illness insurance. He doesn’t see why you would need both. My goal has been to build up enough savings that I don’t need either type of insurance because I’ve become self-insured.
