WE had our closing on the spec house this morning. This is the 2nd house we have closed on this year. It was nice to add that money to our newest money market account.

Opened new account

July 20th, 2013 at 09:11 pm

My bank is offering a new 1% interest money market account, so I oppened one. That is about the highest rate I can find, but it is only good for 6 months. I sure wish higher rates would come back. I have an old checking account that is sitting dormant, so I think I will close it down and add to the money market.

out, sick

July 20th, 2013 at 04:52 pm

I have been out sick since July 8th, thus only one post for the month. I have had an upset stomach and diarrhea. This is the sickest I have been in my life. Ifinally went to a doctor on Wednesday. They are giving me medicine and I have had some lab tests. I have put savings on hold for two long. I need to get started back on my $20 challenge.
I know I have had at least 10 no use gas days this month; the braves won yesterday and I saved $6 at the grocery store using my advantage card.
Thus, I have $27 for my $20 challenge.
