    I'm just curious why you have a balance on your credit card with so much in the bank at ING? Is the credit card at 0%?

    Yeah, it does look a bit stupid, doesn't it? The credit card money is new, from November, which I should pay off by March. Most of the ING money is a gramma gift and the first bit of an inheritance, and somehow I want to do something more with it than just paying a credit card bill. Money isn't always money, I guess!

    Good for you! Looks like you're making really great progress. Now if only the rest of the US population would start saving as diligently! Smile On another note, perhaps you can get your sis to read "Sudden Money" by Susan Bradley as a guide to how she might make the most of her inheritance. It would be such a shame if she lost it due to mistakes that could have been preventable.
    I have no doubts, however, that you will make the most of this once in a lifetime opportunity.
