I finagled my savings account a bit, today. What I used to do was deposit $100 a month into it. Today, I switched it to $25 weekly, which will give me $1,250 in a year's time, plus interest. Not much of a quantitative addition, but every little bit helps. It will be up to $2,500 soon, and when it hits that, I can convert it to a money market account, which will earn a higher interest rate that will be compounded monthly, so I'm looking forward to that.
Yes, I know; I am the same person who was whining about spending $300 in one month to buy an iPod. The thing is, I would prefer to pay for that out of my checking account balance, not out of my savings account balance. There's not much point in having a savings account if I spend what's in it every chance I get. So...I get my iPod in August.
