Myth: Tim Hortons coffee is stronger (ie has more caffeine) or is the same as Starbucks. Answer: False. Starbucks coffee contains more than twice the caffeine of a comparable size at Tim Hortons.
This month I received a matching RRSP contribution from my employer and also finally purchased some TD e-series funds after delaying it for a year.
January was a busy month for me and yet my numbers barely reflect it. I moved in to a new apartment this month and incurred the costs usually associated with moving.
Happy New Year everyone. Hopefully 2012 is treating you well. I'm starting this year off strong with an enormous gain of 11.4% over last month.
This last month has sped by and surprisingly I've posted another decent gain. I managed to save $500 this month, with the rest of the increase due to my stocks recovering from yearly lows. Next month I expect to pass the $25,000 Net Worth milestone if everything goes to plan. The three paycheques I will be receiving in December should assure me of it.
As I'm currently in the process of looking for an apartment, I'd like to suggest to anyone else in the same situation to definitely take a look at Padmapper.
It's time to take a look at my expenses. This is from RBC's very useful myFinanceTracker. I can't recommend it enough to people. Your bank probably has something similar.
