OMG my work life is nutzo. I promised myself I’d take a vacation day to recuperate, yet I don’t even have time to go to the bathroom. Even then, I’m reading and responding to emails while I’m on the potty. Can mama get a sticker?
Insanity. Anything non-work-related, I shrug and say, “Sorry I can’t deal right now.”
When Franco sees me, he waves good-bye and says, “Mama go work.”
Onto the blog. Let’s talk about money!
Here’s how I maximize my finances.
I do all the sensible things:
- Pay off our credit cards in full.
- Max out our 401ks.
- Ensure we’re properly insured.
- Refinance whenever possible and if it makes sense.
Recently I moved our savings into the Capital One 360 Money Market paying 1% for balances above $10k, and 0.60% for balances below $10k. You won’t find that rate anywhere. You’re welcome.
My go-to card is the Citi Double Cash Card. No annual fee. You get 2% cash back for everything that you can put on the card and I put everything I possibly can on it. If I could put my mortgage on this card, I would!
I also do the bulk of our shopping on Amazon, which calls for the Amazon Store Prime Card offering 5% cash back on purchases.
What am I missing? Do you have any slam-dunk financial advice?
