tweaking the savings

June 24th, 2007 at 11:41 pm

The credit card check got posted to my account. I'm caught up, with about $60 in total debt. Hah.

I have about $300 left in my checking account to last me 4 days, so I put in another $150 into my Paypal account, which is in itself paying 5.02% interest. If I have $300 in checking by this time of the month its really not doing me any good. I'd much prefer $100 - $150.

Will be seeing what this paycheck is going to look like - I couldn't get a fix on the last paycheck because it has retro pay on it. With the pay raises, I plan on hiking up the monthly amounts I put into savings. How much depends on what I see in the next paycheck.

My newspaper subscription is going up by an estimated $3/month.

    That is really nice to be down to $60. Wow, Paypal pays 5.02% do you really like it

    Amber - I don't put a ton of money in my Paypal account, but it is secure, easy to transfer money in. They don't track what you've earned daily like ING does, and its a bit too easy to spend money through it. They really did well by me when I had 2 mysterious transactions in it. Thumbs up!
