Getting an Early Start
I've decided to start tackling my January goals. I set up two additional sub accounts at ING direct. One intended to save for the secured credit card and one to put money aside until I can get to the bank and talk to somebody about starting my RSP. This means I now have 4 accounts with ING. The other two being for my EFund and the Australia fund. Yay!
So I can check that goal off the list! I opened them both with the minimum $10 contribution but plan to bump them both up to a hundred dollars to meet my other goal before the end of the month.
While I was playing around on the ING site I decided to transfer some other funds. First $50 to the Australia Fund to make it a nice round $100 as per goal and another $80 to the EFund to meet the $100 goal on that one as well. I'm half way to the second goal!
I definitely plan to put more in the Australia fund before the end of the month. I am getting a one week check this Friday because of changes to the pay system at work and then another two week cheque before the end of the month. I did miss 3 days of work sick though. I return on Wednesday.
I have to say it is a wonderfully new and strange feeling to wonder how to allot my extra money towards savings rather than debt. I have to say... me likey! ;-)
