Updates: December 9 – 15
This week, CF and I got up very early Thursday morning and attended the Pan Pacific Christmas Wish Breakfast! It’s becoming somewhat of a tradition for us to bring down a couple of toys for donation – we like that we know exactly where our donations are going. It was really well organized this year, with lots of seating to eat and lots of great food! We got there earlier this year, so the toy pile wasn’t quite as high yet as it was last year (we could still see the stepladder this year…)
Don’t forget, we’ve got a pretty sweet giveaway going on right now until December 28th – an Apple iPad 32GB with Wifi! Even if you’ve already liked everyone on Facebook and completed all the other entry options, you can still get a new entry every day by tweeting about the contest. Be sure to stop by all our partners in the giveaway for more ways to win!

Here’s some good holiday reading from around the web:
- Do you associate volatility with risk? Freedom Thirty Five helps to differentiate the two and reminds us that they are very different things.
- When we plan to go somewhere, CF and I always do a lot of research and book well in advance. One Smart Dollar looks at the advantages of booking your holidays early.
- If you have stuff piling up in your basement or storage closet, consider getting together with some friends and trying Canadian Budget Binder’s version of a Christmas Gift Exchange!
Thanks to everyone who included us this week – as alwasy, if I missed you, send me a note and I’ll update this list.
