The 2012 Federal budget was released yesterday.  The big news were the changes to Old Age Security, an increase to traveller’s exemptions when shopping abroad, and the elimination of the penny.  Canadian Capitalist gives a nice recap of the Federal budget.

Earlier this week we reviewed Rob Carrick’s new book, How Not To Move Back In With Your Parents.  We’re giving away one free copy of this book, and the lucky winner is Liz!

Over on Moneyville, I wrote about the new ScotiaHockey NHL rewards card and wrote a post about some Canadians suffering from debt regret.  I also guest posted on Planting Money Seeds, listing 4 tricks restaurants use to make more money.
