Should I Take Personal Finance Advice From A Barber?

Should I Take Personal Finance Advice From a Barber?David Chilton has written two books about personal finance, The Wealthy Barber and The Wealthy Barber Returns.

The Wealthy Barber was first published in 1989 and was given a 3rd edition in 1997. The Wealthy Barber Returns was published in 2011.

Admittedly, a lot can change in personal finance in a decade or so, and for that reason, I read both books. I wanted to make sure I wasn’t missing any great advice that Chilton had to offer.

I'm hoping this review will save you time and money. Not to give anything away, but you will only need to buy one of these books (if you do intend to buy either of them at the end of this review).

So let’s start at the beginning! Keep reading » about Should I Take Personal Finance Advice From A Barber?

14 ways to claim your free money

Is free money too good to be true?

If someone comes up to you and offers you free money, no strings attached - what would you do?

I know. You’d probably keep walking in the other direction…But here’s the thing:

There is actually a ton of free money available to most Canadians just waiting to be taken advantage of.

But first - let’s answer a couple of questions...

Where does (legit) free money come from?

It could come from the government, your employer, a business looking for new customers - or simply by choosing to give your bank less money (because they have enough of it for goodness sake!).

What do I require from you to get access to all this money?

The willingness to spend a little time and take ACTION. You need to get organized and follow through on making some simple changes to your life. Then, watch the free money and savings start rolling in.

If that sounds good to you - then let’s get started.

Declutter Your Closet And Build A Capsule Wardrobe You and Your Wallet Will Love

"I’m getting rid of a bunch of clothes so I can focus on a capsule wardrobe," my sister informed me.

We were talking on the phone, so she didn’t see me roll my eyes and scratch my head...

What kind of weird, self-challenge was she attempting now? What the heck is a "capsule" wardrobe?

Then, several months later, my editor asks me if I’d be interested in writing a piece about how to get by with only a small collection of clothes. Naturally, I said yes and immediately called my sister.

"So, what was that capsule thing you did with your wardrobe a while back?" Keep reading » about Declutter Your Closet And Build A Capsule Wardrobe You and Your Wallet Will Love

Culture Without The Cost: A Guide To Cheap Eats For Budget Travellers

Culture Without The Cost: A Guide To Cheap Eats For Budget Travellers

Soaking up cultures from around the globe is one of the biggest reasons so many of us travel.

Meeting new people, listening to foreign languages and celebrating different customs gives us a new perspective on life we never would have known otherwise.

And one of the absolute best ways to soak up culture is through food.

We all understand the language of food. Food represents our history, from its colours and smells to its exquisite textures, and provides a sneak peak into the otherworldly adventures we so crave.

Which is why, as a traveller, I never understood how so many tourists could gravitate towards big chains like McDonald’s and the Hard Rock Cafe, missing out on local watering holes and beloved family restaurants, and sacrificing the food culture altogether.

But the truth is, while trying new foods may be one of the best cultural experiences you can have, it’s also one of the most expensive, accounting for at least a quarter of your travel budget.

But that doesn’t mean you have to choose one over the other. Keep reading » about Culture Without The Cost: A Guide To Cheap Eats For Budget Travellers
