I don’t know about where you are, but I’m melting here in Japan. We’ve had 35 degrees for the past few days. I’ve been enjoying the air conditioning and catching up on some articles. Here’s a few I enjoyed from the past week.
- Canadian Capitalist talks about the benefits to be had by investing a small amount of money over time.
- Preet at Where Does All My Money Go is giving away some great gifts as part of his blog’s three year anniversary. Not only is another iPad going to one lucky reader, but so is a Star Trek spork!
- Michael James on Money asks if buying a house makes one financially responsible.
- Mr Cheap at Money Smarts says that work kills a piece of his soul everyday.
- A guest poster at Million Dollar Journey wrote a couple of bond related articles… part 1 and part 2.
- Canadian Finance Blog talks about crafting a gas budget.
- Paddy Hirsch gives a whiteboard description of the Chinese currency peg.

An article of mine was also featured in the Carnival of Personal Finance at Beating Broke. There are a plethora of articles on that site, so stop by if you have the time.
Hope everyone had a great weekend.
