You may have noticed the quiet chirping of crickets here at the Crazy Green Cheapskate. (It's quiet on Cats and Dogs Turtles and Frogs and Plant Container Garden too). Well my hubby was working from home while the Merchant Marine Academy is between classes. So I am taking advantage of him being home with the kids to get some extr hours at work.
We have a Savings account that is only in my name and it is almost untouchable. There is no checks since it is a savings account. We have no ATM card or debit card for it. Basically the only way to get to the cash is to drive to New Jersey to the bank. This is where my pay check goes by direct deposit. Since we have no direct access to it we have no way to spend it so it has been growing. With the extra hours I've been getting we have now passed the $ 10000 mark.
I consider this paying ourselves to reach our goals. Which in this case will be a home when we move out of Long Island.
