20 Canadian Blogs that Help You Be Money Smart.

June 15, 2009

Well I am just another mom on a journey and well that journey has me checking out all the Canadian content I could find. You see last week on Frugal Dad there was a list post of top Frugal Blogs.  I was well a bit surprised that no one north of the border made that list.

Now I do visit, read and comment on blogs south of the border because they do have many tricks that we can use up here. Now there is a big BUT coming, not always do they meet the needs or desires of the Canadian mom looking to save a loonie or two.

So I decided I needed we as Canadians needed a  special list, I hope you fellow Canucks find it useful. It is chalked FULL of Canadian content. Blogs that will help you be frugal, blogs that help you decide on investing, blogs that help you organize. Blogs that basically help, encourage and inspire me and I hope they do the same for you. Blogs written from a Canadian mindset.These are in no particular order.

1. Common Cents Mom- Yes my blog is one written primarily for moms looking to save, and I hope it becomes a blog you follow. I am about finding ways to save that leave cents in the wallet.

For the Frugally minded:

2. Squawkfox-is a lifestyle blog as the writer Kerry calls it. It is full of ideas that help you live larger on a budget.

3.Frugal Canadian Living-a Canadian’s guide to a frugal life.

4.Frugal Dreamer-blog of a 20 something who lives frugally.

5. Simply Frugal in Canada– great posts of some of the best deals, as well as many frugal posts.

7.Bargainista– this Toronto based Mom blogs some of the best bargains.

8.Bargain Moose– Anna loves to shop but doesn’t like to spend so she posts some great deals.

Now for your money/ personal finance needs you want to follow these:

10. Gail Vax-Oxlade– a woman who know money, and debt, if you are dealing with both you must follow her.

11. Ellen Roseman– Toronto Star columnist who dishes straight talk on personal finance and consumer issues.

16.Where Does All the Money Go– great blog on finance and so much more

Now the rest have their own niche or take on things that help me be money smart and I hope they help you too.
