Every once in a while I like to showcase a new or “newish” blog that I really like and I don’t think a lot of my readers know about. This time I’m talking about Tough Money Love. I really like this American blog because the auther is very opiniated. Too many blogs are just plain boring – they write for search engines, they compile lists of ways to save money on groceries….boring, boring, boring! TML tells it like it is and doesn’t mind if he offends a few people on the way.
- A recent post which is one of my favourites – Vanity is on sale – a very amusing and sarcastic post.
- Another pointless credit sob story – I’ve stopped caring – If you borrow too much money and run into trouble then don’t be expecting any sympathy from TML!
- And finally a timely post after my own heart – TML says to cut down on consumerism at Christmas time.
182 pounds. I didn’t exercise as much last week since I was out of town for several days eating, eating and eating….

Ron from the The Wisdom Journal had a post on the Canadian banking system which is the soundest in the world. His description of US investment banks was priceless:
