Thank you. I will be able to retire 6 months earlier from your advice. I have almost paid off c.c. reduced bank fees and interest. I enjoy recording in my "budget binder" just started a new 2015 binder. Like seeing where I am saving.and where I could save more. Down with bank fees! :o

Hello Gail, I frequently read your articles in the 'Money' section of the 'Metro' when commuting to work. Great advice and I hope that more readers take it to heart. I belong to the baby boomer generation and as I'm moving closer to the end of my work life, facing less opportunities which come with big salaries, being sensitive about my expenses, and saving for my retirement years becomes all the more important. Most of what I'm reading on this topic is common sense but thank you for the frequent nudge.

Take care and have a great day.

Hello
we have recently retired, we have saved all our lives. We have income from our investments to live off. Our problem is opposite to your guests, we need to know how much to spend. We are concerned with making our money last. I worry about spending on holidays and new stuff.
how do you budget for retirement.

Hi Gail. Just a thought... You may want to ad MONTHLY in the heading of the interactive budget. Thanks for the help. Regards Linda

The game is rigged, and whatever people do, most of them will end up losing a lot- if not most- of their savings. Retired people living on a small fixed income are doomed to finish their lives in poverty. RRSPs, TFSA,RESPs,RRIFs are scams, and gifts to the taxman and the banks. Please be honest to your readers, let them know that inflation and higher taxes will swallow all their tax-free earned interest and much of their s originally saved money. Videos are out there for those who want to know the truth. And last, bail-ins is a new word introduced recently, it would be a good idea to explain it to your readers.

Thank you for many years of watching how it is supposed to be done and setting intelligent priorities. Gives me the incentive to stay on track and make it all work. Such common sense...who woulda thunk it? :D

Caught your discussion with Amanda lang yesterday and found it so refreshing to find someone speaking as I have practised for many years. I established a hand-written budget the day my wife and I got married (1965) and moved into our own home. (Priority was house purchase and no honeymoon!) We allowed ourselves then 4 gallons of gas (petrol then) a week with one extra gallon a month for a fun trip. Could tell you many more things we did then to move us forward.

Cannot understand how people are unable to follow what is to us a normal sensible financial practice. We are frustrated at some of our younger family who seem incapable of accepting the need for budgeting!

Hey Gail..... just finished watching Princess - Ashley C. During commercial I told myself that if you give her anything I would quit watching the show! For the first time ever that I have seen, you gave a Princess nothing! You are the best thing on TV today. Absolutely love your philosophy.

I totally 100% blame parents for raising these "princesses" who think the world owes them. What the hell is wrong with parents today? They need to stop taking the easy way through parenting!

Cheers,
Silvja

Dear Gail, I love, love, love your 'Til Dept do us Part" television show. The ideas are very hands on, practical and helpful. Congrats for helping so many couples out with their seemingly overwhelming budget problems. Many people that I speak with also love your show. Are you going to do some new ones soon? I hope so. I would love to see some follow up success stories shows from couples that have been on your show in the past and have turned their financial lives around! My favourite show is the one with the young couple where the boyfriend is a dj who has a little daughter named Lyric. It was the first time you ever gave an extra thousand dollars to the couple and they deserved it. Keep up the great work!

Hi Gail! I love your show and your website! I just published an article on my blog Scientific Explorer where I shared a personal story called "Living a Common-Sense Life: On Brilliance, Balance and Money." I have linked to your website and described your television show and I thank you for helping this science nerd get money-savvy!
