two sentence paragraphs! [Apr. 1st, 2010|01:59 pm]
[Current Mood |happyhappy]

I'm very glad I married a man who can fix things around the house - he unclogged our sink last night, which meant we could run the dishwasher again! It's surprising how many dirty dishes we generate; if we don't run the dishwasher every day we're getting behind.

If you have a money market account, you might want to check the yield. Ours earned .3% last year and is on track to earn .0004% this year (annualized) - gonna switch that over to a savings account!

Queering the census - glad to know we filled ours out right! Umm...purple monkey dishwasher.

When they say yields are sucking, they're not joking around. The *best* ones I've found outside of CD's are the online banks like ING Direct, American Express Bank, and Discover Bank, and they're around 1.1-1.3%.

Remember the glory days of 5%+ rates? ;)

Yeah, I opened a savings account with ING Direct - 1.1% isn't much to crow about but it's better than essentially nothing!
