Snowflake Update

Just so you all realize I'm not totally blowing off personal finance during my bout of Spring Fever...

I got a notice that Half.com will be depositing to my account $9.03 from recent sales (not a lot,but hey, better than nothing!) I also got $60 in house photo money today. The Half.Com cash goes into my E-fund account, the $60 goes in to the Credit Union Savings Account. That will bring the amount in the Credit Union Account up to $255.

As Ive posted before, I have a couple accounts, ING, Credit Union and my E-Fund checking account. If push comes to shove, they are all E-Fund Accounts. Total in all three accounts is about $800 ( I don't have exact totals handy). That makes me almost halfway to my year goal of a $2,000 E-fund. My tax stimulus check will put me at $1,400 and I'm still funding my E fund $200 a month. Had I not had to replace my broken storm door and the neighbors car window, and a couple not so emergency emergencies, I'd be "fully funded". Even though I had been taking property photos for a while, my plan to deposit the checks to my main account then transfer to the ING account just never got rolling. More so due to laziness on my part to log on and do a funds transfer (at times I am such a slug). With the credit union, I just make the deposit when I swing by once a week. Much better and I'm not "tempted" to budget out that money for some other treat or project.

Ah well, it is what it is.... The snowflaking continues.....
