Updates: March 10 – 16

Don’t forget, today is the last day to enter our Facebook iPod shuffle giveaway. Head over to our Facebook Page and get in on the action!

We’re also co-hosting the ongoing Canon Rebel DSLR giveaway, which you can enter here.

It seems like everyone I know is just about finished up with their tax returns. Sadly, this year I’ll actually be faced with giving up more money to the government thanks to extra income from my side gig, the blog and about $4000 net income from our rental condo. We increased RRSP contributions midway through the year, but it wasn’t quite enough to catch up to the extra income. Next year should be good with the added RRSP contributions, added RRSP matching by my employer and the ability to decrease the condo net income thanks to an assessment this year.

We also made some progress on moving our RRSP investments to a brokerage – goodbye mutual fund fees! All that remains is to mail in a form and wait for the results. All this financial stuff should be cleared up in time for the weather to finally get better and I can enjoy being outside again.
