Another busy week for yours truly, but never the less a successful one at that. Also, its has noticeably gotten colder at nights, not sure where you are, but here in Toronto the temperature dropped down to a high of +11 overnight. It was only two weeks ago that the temperatures were in the mid-to-high 30s. I guess so much for summer, as fall begins to move back in, so does the wintery clothing.
On the bright side, football is almost here, and the NFL season is less than a month away from starting. On Monday I’ll be taking part in our annual football draft. Wish me luck!
Do you watch NFL Football? Who’s your team?
Share your football talk below, but in the mean time I’ll share 7 awesome personal finance reads from this week.

My two cents: Don’t get married……I’m joking…sort of!

My Canuck Buck
Can you date on a budget? Absolutely, I practiaclly invented budget friendly dating – my favorite happens to be coffee (or ice cream) with a walk down by the lake – total cost is less than $10. Dating on a budget is possible, and chicks dig it – for the ones that show the frown – trust me you don’t want to be with a gold digging chick! :)
One Smart Dollar
Celebs are known for living the lavish lives, and being high rollers, but we shouldn’t paint all-of-em with the same brush. Here’s a great post on Sean’s blog about the frugal and famous: 10 celebrity penny pinchers. My fave is Kristen ;)
