In this weekend edition, I thought I would share some of the recent financial happenings in the Sangl Household:
- My ING Direct On-Line Savings Account lowered its interest rate to 4.30% due to the Fed's lowering of rates. That's OK because it is still way better than the 0.20% interest and the minimum balance required by my old bank. You can open your ING On-Line Savings Account and receive $25 FREE if you fund your account with at least $250. NO MORE "FREE $25 LINKS LEFT" – BUT you can still get a great account that is paying 4.20% interest with a minimum balance of $1 by clicking the link at the top right of this page or by clicking HERE.
- We've decided that the home mortgage needs to leave. The Sangl Home Pay-Off Spectacular will be making an appearance on the blog on Monday, October 8th. You will all get to hold Jenn and me accountable as we pound the home mortgage to a nice big ZERO!
- My Health Savings Account (HSA) is about to take a beating from the surgery that I had in June. The final bills are rolling in. It is AWESOME to know that we already have the money in the account in advance!!! This is what prevents debt from happening in the Sangl household.
- Our daughter was inspired by the "Snake Who Ate Christmas" sale on Ebay. She has produced at least twenty drawings that she now wants to sell on Ebay. Can someone tell me how to explain to a seven-year-old that it is highly unusual for sketches like "Snakey-Snake" to sell at all – let alone for $20.50?
