If you had Monday off due to the Civic holiday, hope you enjoyed it. I spent the day hiking with a good friend from university. It started off great, but then it began to spit, then rain, THEN POUR. It poured for what felt like forever. We had no choice but to continue our trek, which wouldn’t have been too bad, but the heavy rain made the uneven terrain a lot more slippery. While it’s no trek to Machu Picchu, there were a lot of thick roots, jagged rocks, with some parts being a bit steep and full of huge puddles. We joked about how we were doing our own mud adventure race.
Although Wednesday is almost over, it’s still Wednesday as I write this post. That usually means I’m over at Suburban Finance. This week’s topic is about product reviews:
“One of the many great things about the internet is that you can search for almost any product online and find several reviews on the product by people who have already purchased that product. I’ll be honest, while I tend to do my research online on most of the items I buy and scrutinize the reviews, I have never myself written a review.
I’m all about helping people and wanting people to make smart consumer choices, but I’m also pretty lazy and can’t be bothered writing about a product review. Unless I got paid for it.”
Do you find online store product reviews biased? Have reading product reviews ever helped you save money? Share your thoughts!

I definitely use product reviews from big sites, like Amazon. I’m not sure if they saved me money but I think they help me evaluate if a purchase is worth it. They are helpful.
