Student RRSPs

Over at Poor Student I have written my little bit about how students should use their RRSPs. A lot of students might think they are too young to be thinking about retirement, which is exactly why they will be worried about it when it is close to fruition. You can read it here

RRSP For Students

I would recommend that all students open an RRSP, I think it is something that you can do once and forget about until later when it is more important. At Poor Student I wrote my little bit of advice about what students should do with regards to their RRSPs. You can read it at

$800 From The Government!

Over at Poor Student I am trying to make every student in Ontario aware that they have a limited amount of time to apply to get some free money from the government. The provincial Liberals have implemented the 30% tuition rebate which is our government's way of lessening the hardship of paying for school. Almost all post secondary school students are eligible, but there is a deadline. Check out my post on it at

Mystery Shopping For Money

I just recently was lucky enough to get the chance to be a mystery shopper. Don't know what that is? That is why I a company paid my $80 to buy $25 worth of products and they didn't pay you. Head over to Poor Student and check out how I made a pretty good profit simply for being the right age and living near the right stores.

Beginning Net Worth

I have a new post at Poor Student. I have decided that I will regularly update my net worth, mostly for my own tracking but also so others can see how I practice what I preach and maybe believe in themselves a little bit more. You can read it at:

Poorstudent.ca

On the advice of many helpful souls at Yakezie, I have decided to take the plunge and invest in my humble (if it even qualifies as humble yet) blog. You can now find my writing at poorstudent.ca. I want to thank everybody who visited this site and encourage you to visit my new site. And I would not have been able to do it without Modest Money or Narrow Bridge Finance or the multiple other bloggers who advised me to make the switch. So please, if you will, drop by Poor Student. Thank you everybody.
