Product Review: Oaken Financial GICs

Product Review: Oaken Financial GICs

Because hey, even though GICs yields approximately 0.0009%, maybe some of you want to buy them. Remember back in the day when you used to be able to get upwards of 4% (GASP!) on GICs? Pepperidge Farms does. And so does your boy Nelly. But that ain’t going to... read more

A Peek Inside Nelson’s TFSA

So y’all like financial voyeurism, huh? YOU SICK FREAKS STOP LOOKING IN MY WINDOW. Today’s post will be quick, since instead of writing it yesterday like a good blogger I went to the grand metropolis of Great Falls, Montana over the weekend. Because hey,... read more

Why More Student Loan Debt is a Good Thing

According to most everyone in the personal finance blog-o-net, student loan debt is worse than the latest Melissa McCarthy movie. Oh stop pretending she’s done anything good since 2013. This is an actual shot from her latest movie, The Boss, which I had the... read more

The Canadian Guide To Whether You Should Incorporate

It all started about a year ago. Actually, probably longer ago than that, most likely. I’m not good at using calendars. I still think it’s 1952. In an effort to save taxes, I started looking into the benefits of incorporating my small business. I liked the... read more

It’s Never Been Easier To Put Money Away in RESPs

You guys might think us here at the Financial Uproar machine (138 HORSES OF PURE POWER, BABY!) are somewhat anti-child. After all, I penned a piece back in the day saying you’ll probably end up richer if you don’t have kids. Saying that, there are plenty... read more

How I Made $30,000 Last Week

…And no, the answer isn’t by selling drugs. C’mon, man. Y’all might remember back in the day when the wife and I were thinking of buying a house. This didn’t go so well for a few different reasons, the main one being that we had a price...

How I Saved $256.48 On My Las Vegas Hotel

And the best part is, I haven’t even showed up yet. Which should give you a pretty big hint about what I did. Every year since 2010 I’ve made the trip down south to the glitz and glamour of Sin City. I like the food, the constant buzz of The Strip, the... read more

Go Ahead, Take That Loan From Your Parents

Yes, you read that title right. Even though accepting said loan will turn you into one of these. Imagine the following scenario. You’ve spent a little beyond your means over the past few years, and now you owe $15,000 in credit card debt. Because you’re an... read more

How Your Emergency Fund Will Cost You $149,816.73

What the what? $149,816? I could, like, pay Taylor Swift and Katy Perry to have a threesome with me for that much money. I could travel to Antarctica, capture a penguin, and then eat it when it inevitably dies. (I’m assuming it tastes like chicken) I could pay... read more

That Time I Almost Went To Work For Investor’s Group

Sometimes people (usually women, let’s face it) like to think about how their lives would have been different if they had made some different decisions. What would have happened if they’d pursued that relationship? How different would life have become if... read more

Buy Assets Instead Of Going To College

If you’ve been paying attention, I’m kind of anti-college around here. I believe that college should be path to get to a specific career. If you want to be a nurse, or a teacher, or an engineer, or a crap-ton of other things, then your path will need to go... read more
