Ever since maxing out my tax advantaged accounts, I’ve been looking for a way to keep making some purchases within these accounts.

You can see here which stocks were already on my radar. I decided to go ahead and buy some shares of Alimentation Couche-tard (ATD.B), 21 shares to be precise. I also increased my position in Dream Global REIT ...

I feel like telling you guys a story, so I will. That’s what nice about blogging, you always have the impression someone is listening as you write. My love of money is rooted deep, very deep. My father was alway good with money and I would consider him a very wise spender. I can say the same about his father before him, who still working by the way… 86 years old! ...
