It’s Family Day weekend here in Alberta, which means lots of folks will be heading out to go skiing, snowboarding, or just getting away for a short holiday.  Unfortunately I’m stuck working this weekend so no vacation for me, but this will be my last weekend of work until September, which is really nice.

Last week I was contacted by Globe and Mail reporter Dakshana Bascaramurty after she read my article on Extended Warranties, and she interviewed me about my experience at a Canadian furniture store.  On Tuesday she published her article in the Globe and Mail – Why Would You Need That Extended Warranty?

Here is a look at my favorite personal finance articles from around the blogosphere this week:

  1. Young and Thrifty gives an example of When Buying Something Expensive Can Be Worth It
