Savings act interest =lead balloon

March 22nd, 2008 at 05:35 pm

All these Fed rate cuts are killing me. I just keep watching the interest rate on my savings act. go down. It was 5 percent a couple of months ago. Now I'll be lucky if it stays above 3. Anyone have any ideas on a better place to stash my cash??

    What's the cash for?

    It's just our emergency fund plus we use it for big home repairs. Up next, a new roof. Basically, it's our liquid fund account.

    Could you do a CD ladder? 3 mth, 6 mth, 9 mth, etc. Where a portion would become available each time and if not needed then you can reinvest at hopefully higher rates!

    I've never had a CD before. Maybe I should look into it.
