coin jar

September 29th, 2006 at 03:53 am

I'm taking in my coin jar to the bank today. I did not do that last month. I was saving all coins and singles. Occasionally taking out quarters for parking when I go to a meeting in town. I'm anxious to see how much there is. Also today is the end of 3rd quarter so when I do my books this weekend I'll see how I did. My second son went to college this fall so took a hit for that last month but I think I did good. So we'll see.

SLow but Sure

Finanically things have been going pretty good for me. Sending a son to college has set me back this month, but happy I wasn't sending him to the Marines like he wanted.

My budget is working very well, I'm using percentage instead of a set dollar amount. I readjusted my 401K and it has settled down alot. I did lose a lot of ground the first half of the year.

I've invested in the stock market this year. Just a little but it's been doing very well so far.

I looked into EmigrantDirect for my savings and that has been great. My I bonds on the other hand. When I purchased them, 6% now maybe 2% and I can't do anything about it for another 4 oonths. Hopefully the rate will go up again in November.

I've been letting my coinjar ride this month. I'll cash it in, in October.
