500 posts! Free stuff!

Posted by on September 22, 2009 in Uncategorized

TMW has reached 500 posts! A special thanks for all of you who read daily, the other bloggers who link to my posts, advertisers and people who have given my tips and suggestions.

As a token of thanks, I am giving away one copy of Kerry Taylor’s (aka Squawkfox to the blogging world) 397 ways to Save Money showing you ways to save money on your home, insurance, pets and other simple and effective ways to make your dollar go further.

Prize #2 is David Bach’s Fight for Your Money. As the by-line says:  The bestselling author shows you how to protect your money and put thousands back in your pocket every year by taking on the “corporate machines” who are taking you to the cleaners.

Prize #3 is David Krueger and John David Mann’s The Secret Language of Money: How to make smarter financial decision and live a richer life; a book which explores our subconscious meanings to money and how we can change our habits. I will be reviewing this book in a future post.

All you have to do is post a simple comment. I will do a random draw at 5:00 pm (EST) next Tuesday and announce three winners on Wednesday. The first winner to respond gets to make their pick, the second winner to respond chooses next and then the third winner gets the remaining book.

Back to regular programming tomorrow.

Congrats on the 500th post and for the many tips on thickening our wallets. Lately it seems like almost all marked prices can be negotiated down. If you haven’t already done a post on how to negotiate down it may be worth it under the category “money saving techniques”.

Thanks for all the information about finances and good advices, specially for people like me coming into Canada from other country and in need for financial advice in order to survive this beautiful country but a very expensive one, where some people and business try to take advantage of our lack of knowledge regarding Canadian life. Perhaps a post about first steps for new-comers? That would be nice.

By John on September 29, 2009 at 12:10 pm

Excellent work. I always enjoy your posts.
