Good day all and welcome to Canadian Dream: Free at 45. My name is Tim and I’ll be your host today. In honour of my second son being born early this month I’m basing the theme of this carnival on the classic poem: Monday’s Child.
Monday’s child is fair of face (or at least wrote a great post which caught this editor’s eye).
- Wide Open Wallet wrote a great post on Credit Protection.
- Save and Conquer wrote an entertaining test on if you are financially boring.
- Amateur Asset Allocator wrote an interesting post on Will the Falling Dollar Cause Inflation?

- Help My Cash Grow writes about Don’t Blame OPEC for the high price of oil.
- Five Cent Nickel writes about The Social Acceptability of Frugality.
- I’ve Paid For This Twice Already writes about Tracking Pennies (something that is painful to do, but useful).
- Are You Going to Be This Way the Rest of the Time I Know You (wow what a long blog title) writes a great post about Time and Effort are More Valuable Than Money.
Tuesday’s child is full of grace (perhaps owing to the fact they learned their money management and savings skills well).
