Updates: July 7 – 13

Well, this was a bit of an interesting week – we had to deal with a broken fridge/freezer, which CF will tell you all about on Monday! When we weren’t dealing with broken appliances, I took advantage of some free local events and checked out the Gastown Grand Prix. I love cycling and it was really cool to see the Canadian Road Champion and a Canadian member of a team currently in the Tour de France participating. Svein Tuft, who was here last year but is riding the Tour de France this year actually came 6th in the Tour time trial on same day this week, a very impressive accomplishment.

The weather has remained sunny and warm, unlike the rest of the country. I won’t complain!

Here are some of our favourite posts from the week!

  • We Only Do this Once suggests four things to consider when looking for a side hustle. I love side hustles!
  • Student Debt Survivor explains how she learned from example from her mom’s money management skill.
  • NZ Muse loves London – I agree, it’s a pretty cool place!
  • Mo Money Mo Houses has endured a tough week in Toronto with flooding and lack of power. Hope things get back to normal soon!
  • Frugal Rules shows how debt fatigue can affect your ability to pay off debt.

    Thank you for mentioning my post on We Only Do This Once. Sorry to hear about your freezer, it always seems to happen when it is so hot your food would spoil right away and all the repair men are on holiday doesn’t it? I hope you fixed it quickly.

  2. Thanks for the link love! I’ve always wanted to see the Gastown Grand Prix. I always see posters for it.

  3. Oh no, sounds like some appliance fun happened this weekend. I’m looking forward to hearing all about it. Cheers mate!

  4. Looks like a pretty fun event! Hope you guys had a great weekend!

  5. Oh so how was the event? I hope you had a blast!
