When my fiance and I moved from Cincinnati to Boston, we had Chase bank accounts. Boston, however, has only one Chase bank location: an ATM in the airport. Well, crap.
We switched to Ally bank once I saw how amazing their interest rates are. (Seriously amazing. So amazing that I had to fill out an extra tax form last year because I earned so much money!)
It wasn’t until about a week or so ago that I thought to myself, “Hmm. I’m putting all of my leftovers every week in my money jar. If at the end of this year I have… say… $1500 in that jar, I’ll have to deposit it. And… Ally is an online bank… and they don’t do cash deposits.” Well, crap again.
So, I’m really unsure what the hell to do about this. I mean… there’s no harm in having a secret stash of emergency money in the apartment for the proverbial “rainy day”, right? But I still wish I could deposit it somewhere for it to gain interest or something!
Okay, rant over. (Though any suggestions would be nice!)
As I write this, I’m waiting for my fiance to be done getting ready so we can go out with a coworker and her husband for dinner and drinks. My guy will pay, most likely, but I may buy a drink for each of us so I will be bringing my remaining money with me, prepared to spend it if I must. Luckily I have a good chunk still left!
