LinkStuff – Easter Egg Hunt Edition

by Mike Holman

I’m looking forward to the big Easter egg hunt that we will have at our house.  Last year, the kids really enjoyed it and it went on for hours.  My son really enjoyed hiding eggs and then leading me around telling me where to find them.  :)

My pushup challenge is still going.  I finished week two and then did an exhaustion test where I completed 30 pushups.  This is a huge improvement over my initial test where I only did 10!  Now I’m working on week three, which I expect to take a few weeks to complete.  :)

Special mention

I was interviewed a while back by Kate McCaffery who wrote two very good RESP articles over at Wallet Pop Canada.  She used some of my quotes in the articles.

Here are the two articles:

On with the links

Rachelle from Landlord Rescue does a good expose on a real estate investing “course”. Apparently they aren’t quite as good as advertised.  Imagine that.

Krystal vents her frustrations getting money from her TD e-series RRSP. I love the low cost of these products, but I also wonder why TD doesn’t just shut them down, if they aren’t going to support them.

John Spears at Moneyville wrote a very good article on Property tax – 10 things you need to know. Point #7 is a good one.

Canadian Mortgage Trends reports on a renegade RBC mortgage specialist who says that mortgage brokers are no good. I’ve found that mortgage brokers are far superior to any bank “lending specialist”.

Canadian Capitalist hosted a series by the Blunt Bean Counter on Transferring the family cottage. An excellent series.

Million Dollar Journey had a guest post by Sustainable Personal Finance on Cottages and capital gains tax. I don’t remember ever seeing a blog post on cottage succession in the last five years, and now – twice in one week. I better get started on mine. :)

Boomer and Echo covers How to draw cash from your investments.

Retire Happy Blog recommends being debt free in retirement.  Hard to argue with that great advice.
