Print page

I am so excited to announce our featured blog this week…..this week I went to the Random.org Generator and put in a number 1 through 14 of our Linky’s this week and the number that was chosen was No. 6 Canadian Budget Binder’s Blog which I was delighted about because Mr. CBB and me have become great like-minded Virtual friends and I can’t wait to tell you all about their journey with their blog!   I have to tell you all it is getting harder and harder each week to pick a blog to feature so I am going to keep changing things up on how it is selected.   If you like saving money you are going to want to stick around for this feature….trust me!

The blog post Mr. CBB linked up last week to “The Ole’ Saturday Homesteading Trading Post Ed. No. 30” is listed below:

Mr. or Mrs. Money Bags Is that you?

I loved this blog post because lets face it when you are together at group functions etc… not only is everyone not coming from the same socio-economic background but we all do not spend money in the same way.  We all have different priorities.    I think people fail to realize even if we had a higher income I would still not choose to spend my money out on dinner on a regular basis it’s not the healthiest option and its also usually  not the most delicious option either.

Another post I think you will really enjoy and you should bookmark Canadian Budget Binder’s site is that Mr. CBB bookmarks his favorite blog posts each week.  He is highly selective I know because I have read his posts and I have visited many of the blogs he has shared and you can tell he is really looking for new and applicable blog posts that you the blog reader can relate too!

Mr. CBB’s Weekly Blog Post Picks July 20, 2012

My favorite post he does each week and the one that is nearest and dearest to my heart is “The Grocery Game Challenge”….you can tell this is a passion of their’s to stay within the budget guidelines each month (something we need to get better at) but also he breaks down prices and even coupon match ups.  It’s incredible you don’t want to miss it each week!

And while Mr. CBB writes a lot about saving money you can tell him and his wife love to cook…..Check out this not only frugal recipe it looked so delicious  and fresh I had to share it and I have to try it this week it is healthy and I know its going to be yummy!

Mr. CBB’s Summer Fresh Tomato Salad with Basil, Fennel and Chickpeas

Also Canadian Budget Binder now has a weekly link up for blogs so don’t miss an opportunity to get your blog’s name out there!

I just know you will enjoy reading his blog as much as I do!  Click here to read all about Mr. CBB and his wife “The Mrs.” and how this all got started!

Now its time for The Ole’ Saturday Homesteading Trading Post Edition No. 31 this week!  I guess you all know I have been cleaning and decluttering and we are having a yard sale this weekend.  What are you all up to?  I will be choosing a new blog to feature that has linked up every week so make sure to link up I can’t wait to share what you are doing on your homestead!
