    I am ahead of you Simone.  I posted this a few weeks ago.  It is about creating a spreadsheet to plan how much you will need for the rest of your life.

    Hi Simone, Thank you for the weekly idea, and here is a link to my hub. 
    I have gone through the different ages, explaining how much you need to save to retire, if you start saving in your 20's, 30's. 40's 50's and even go into your 60's.

    I had already done hubs on Retirement Savings Plans for Small Businesses and the Self-Employed and on the fact that your social security benefit could be taxed so I switched gears a little and here is my Hub for this topic: "10 Retirement Savings Tips for When You start Your First Job"

    http://bankscottage.hubpages.com/hub/10 … -First-Job

    I thought tips by mts 1098 in his hub on this topic were so good, I put in a link to it.

    Being new to hub pages, I am looking for all sorts of inspiration to write so I decided to give the Weekly Topic Inspiration a try.   Here is a link to the article I wrote. ( the directions said you didn't have to be an expert, and I am not, I wrote about the best advice I ever received).

    During these times everyone should be planning for retirement and in Canada contribute to RRSP (Registered Retirement Savings Plan).  Here's a hub talking about what types of RRSPs available:

    HI Simone!
    I wrote this hub last year.  I hope you don't mind me adding it here.  It has information about financial planning, but mostly about WHAT to do with yourself when you retire.  So many people think they can't wait until retirement, but they find when they "relax" they have terrible health problem. 

    This is a great topic!  One more people should pay attention to, even when young.
